I complimented Kitty on her cool looking hat, and she seemed receptive. Her reaction to being photographed was a bit delayed, possibly due to a slight language barrier. I believe that her accent was either Scandinavian or of the Baltic States. Either way, asking her to not smile was futile.
I asked her what the best thing that had happened that morning was. Kitty brightened up and pointed to a crowd. She said that an elderly man went by with two tiny black dogs, and you just HAD to smile. They were so cute that it made my morning.
