I woke up from my doze and began reading out jersey names, banners in the crowd and billboard signs in Russian. I gave a thorough explanation to my grandma things like how the "B" is really a "Veh" and a "C" is really an "Ess" and a backwards N is "ee". Before I knew it, I was showing her the whole alphabet and I must say. I felt rather proud of myself; granted, all I explained to her as the alphabet but it was a little accomplishment for me. Now my next accomplishment? Trying to make more sense of the hard/soft sounds!
