Picture says a thousand words

A story about some girls

Speaking English in a foreign country

A few of us girls were standing in a store at the plaka and the view of the Acropolis was so beautiful so we decided to take a picture. A girl with a backpacking backpack was standing nearby and we wanted to ask her to take our picture but didn't know if she spoke english. We whispered rather loudly for a few minutes about whether or not to ask her. After a few minutes she looked at us and said "I'll take your picture. I speak English and I have heard every word you said." It was very embarrassing and we felt so bad that we had not just attempted to ask her.
