A tourist is walking on a country road when a farmer comes along with his
cart. 

"How far is it to Suwalki, please?" the tourist asks.
"Half an hour."
"May I ride with you?"
"Certainly."

After half an hour the tourist begins to grow uneasy.

"How much further is it, then?" he queries.
"Oh, an hour or so."
"What? You told me it was only half an hour away, and we've been travelling
that long already!"
"Yes, but in the opposite direction."
