Learning Cyrillic

After seeing Chinese characters for weeks, Cyrillic seems easy by comparison!  Just imagine our Latin alphabet with a few letters turned around backwards, a few pronounced differently, and a few Greek letters thrown in.  We were really excited when we made out our first words: Stop and Café.


We also figured out that this is an optical shop, but I think that we would fail miserably at the eye test outside!

I can't even read the top line!

Here are a few other fun Cyrillic pics.
