More script-form Cyrillic

Here are some more examples of mind-tickling Cyrillic. This top word is a really common thing to see in the city: apteka (meaning apothecary = pharmacy), written аптека in block Cyrillic but looking funny as аптека in script (that will vary depending on which Cyrillic fonts you have installed):

Now look above at the Billa label on the right. That reads ябълки голд. делишъс = literally yabulki (apples) gold. delishus. Hehe.

I'll finish with a store I saw called "Mira", like our daughter's name:
