A boy (Mika age 6) and a girl (Anna-Lena age 5) wanted to elope in the sunshine in Africa. So after a long New Years eve, the pair snuck out and headed for the train station. Although they had no passports or money, the love birds knew that they needed a witness to get hitched. The last addition to the operation was Anna-Lena's 7 year old sister. They got as far as the airport before the police got wise to the trio and offered them a free tour of the police station. The last two lines of this story are the best : Although any marriage plans have been put on hold for now, police did not altogether rule out the possibility of an African wedding. "They can still put their plan into action at a later date," AFP quoted the spokesman as saying.
