Thanks for the confirmation. After all, I seem to be getting to grip with cyrillic letters ;)

Cheers, Markus

It's not as hard as it looks. My language skills aren't all that, but I can read Cyrillic almost as well as Latin script. Following song lyrics, as I did a lot of, helps a lot in that regard, since it makes you think fast. The other languages can get a bit interesting, especially the minority languages in Russia. Most aren't too tough to figure out, but many of the languages spoken in the Caucasus...they scare me

Yes, there are 14 (or8?) variants, how to pronounce "k" sound, for example, in Dagestan.

Sure it ain't, but it takes some getting used to. And I've been learning for like three months only, plus we're also learning to read (and write, of course) handwriting, which adds to the efforts necessary, so ... gonna need some more practice before I can follow song lyrics at original speed. But I'm getting there http://www.elvastower.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif

I love these Eastern Europe/ Russian maps. The scenery is wonderful and you can get some amazing screenshots!

Trying my best for ET community.
Thank a lot for good mark of mine efforts.
Note, that I've explored only the south quarter of the route now (100km of 450)
Stay online and let's explore it together.
I've travelled along about a half of the route one time and seen much more impressive scenery there.
In time, I'll show it here too, but I must establish complete traffic there first.
You can see screenshots from Savelovo route now.
Thanks to John Harvey's photography composition tutorials.

Welcome to ET.
