both, it must be said, Americans.

1) Accosted outside the entrance to the Botanical Gardens in Oxford, about five feet away from the sign which advertises that it is, in fact the Botanical Gardens, by an American couple asking me, in complete seriousness, "Can you tell us how to get to the Botanical Gardens?".

2) Overheard, in Oxford's High Street, a fellow local being asked by an American couple, "excuse me, could you tell us how to get to Oxbridge please?". I don't think telling them to work hard in their A-Levels would have helped: they were very definitely asking directions...
