    Rudi

    I vaguely see <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Russian</span hide>

    Along the lines of <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Good morning, where is the cafe and cost</span hide>

    Hans' response uses undecipherable characters, can we have a clue please?

    Hi Jezza,

    You have cracked the initial "code". It is <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Russian, or at least the pronounciation of it as if you would spell it in english. If one studies Russian, text books often have this english pronounced version with the cyrillic letters so one knows how to speak it properly.</span hide>

    You have answered correctly on these lines <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">
    1st - Good morning
    2nd - Is there a cafe near here
    4th - Is half complete - it has to do with cost, but its not the complete line...
    </span hide>

    I guess this is a weird puzzle; I initially was going to put it in the Scutlebutt forum, until I thought that it was more of a question/answer than a discussion..!! I'll see if there are any more 'students of <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">language</span hide> amongst us before I throw out the revelation!
    Regards,
    Rudi

    Text replaced with picture by HansV as the text had spontaneously changed to incomprehensible rubbish.

    Re: What am I saying?

    Its pretty close , but a different meaning.

    Here is the full meaning:
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">
    Good morning.
    Is there a cafe near here.
    I'd like to check my emails.
    Could you tell me please, how much is it per minute.
    Can I print this, thankyou.

    Now you know where and how to check your email whenever you visit Russia.
