LOL I know! Whenever I try to pronounce words like "particularly" in English, my tongue just isn't made for it. And I bet it would be even worse with Russian as we are so not used to hear it, let alone speak. So I perfectly understand that you'd have the same problems the other way around. wink

They were cousins, yes. And so were Sissi and her husband Franz Joseph (their mothers were sisters). Technically Sissi was not Habsburg (that was Franz, the Emperor) but a Wittelsbach. – Remember Count Friedrich from episode 202? wink A distant ancestor, I guess. LOL

Oh and I'd like to add something about Google Translator (I mentioned in another thread I use Google to translate the Russian into English): I have been to Castle Rising during my trip through England last months. They offered me a leaflet in German which obviously had been translated from English into German using an online translation website. The text on the leaflet made absolutely no sense at all. ROFLMAO. It was only when I read the English version that I finally understood what the text was about. Since then, I know I have to be very VERY careful with online translators. That's why i rather stick to this English section of the board instead of actively participating in any Russian discussion, because the risk something has been translated wrongly and will ultimately lead to a huge missunderstanding is just too dangerous. sad
