I'm Sorry, I Don't Speak Hungarian

I had composed this shot at a bus station in Bratislava, and I was just waiting for someone to walk through the scene before pressing the shutter, when two ladies approached me and began speaking Hungarian, as one does. I had studied a little Hungarian two years earlier, so I knew enough to say, "I'm sorry, I don't speak Hungarian," which apparently was enough to convince them that I actually did speak Hungarian. After staring at them with no response for two or three minutes, they must have realized I was serious and decided to move on.
