Mensagem: 

After one too many you leave the bar and try to find the way home.  But you can't because you are disoriented.

However if that bar happens to be in Rio and you don't know the way home you would be desorientado or  desnorteado.  (Do these mean the same???)

I can't think of a word in English referring to north when you are lost!  ( Unnorthed? )

 

Are we having fun yet?
