Life in Cyrillic

It took a while to get used to the fact that billboards, posters, book covers, restaurant signs and street signs are in Cyrillic. Now it's kind of fun, seeing how the names we know translate into such a very different system. We have Cyrillic sightings outside Bulgaria now and then - a poster on the Friends t.v. show set, or a bit of spray painted graffiti that means nothing to most passersby in a country we are visiting. I remember when we first started learning, back in Claremont, when Brett was sick with a high fever and wanted me to make him flash cards to study. We've come a long way since then.
