It's been an awfully long time since I've studied Latin, so my grasp of it is pretty rusty. A friend of mine asked me what "Where am I?" and "Who are you?" is in Latin (for some Scriptwriting thing she's doing.) and I'm actually coming up blank. I'd be eternally grateful if someone could help me out. Thank you!

Where am I - Ubi sum?
Who are you - I suppose it would be something like "quis estis?" but that sounds really weird to me. Anyone else have ideas?

Quick reminder - pre the split between the Western and Eastern Empires, there was no "polite" second person; it was second person singular even if you were talking to the Emperor.

Yeah the plural was just a brainfart. I knew something was wrong.
