I Can't Get Away From Russian

I keep trying to move past learning Russian. It was the most logical choice to learn while we were in Kyrgyzstan since we were living in Bishkek, but I wish I could have focused more on Kyrgyz. I've been working on Persian (it helps that I already know the Arabic alphabet, and that there are lots of words borrowed from Arabic, or similar to other Indo-European languages), but now that my parents are going to St. Petersburg I've been enlisted in Russian-learning corps again. So Persian will probably go by the wayside for the next four months while I work on Russian some more so I don't totally confuse my parents.
