The National Pastime

These two kids looked like they were probably 16, and were hanging out at this mostly deserted train stop, drinking beer and shooting the breeze on a Sunday afternoon. Sounds like an okay day to me. They were speaking Russian, which I don't do, so I asked if I could take their picture in Latvian, while holding up my camera. They shrugged and kept talking while I took their picture so I'm guessing it was a successful communication. After a moment, they said something to me in Russian, and I said the Russian equivalent of "Me no speaky Russian." So that was a less successful communication. Maybe they said "don't you dare put that picture on the internets!" I still mostly like the picture.
