I think Lola wrote a few days ago about how the beauty of the Cyrillic letters was one of the things that attracted her to study Russian. I can really understand that attraction. I've been going to Google Translate and translating different things into Russian just to see how it looks. I'm struggling to learn Italian now, or I would think about trying to study Russian!
Я думаю, Лола пишет о том, как красота кириллицы была одна из тех вещей, которые привлекли ее изучать русский язык. Я могупонять, что притяжение.
