Various letters are used in the world, so even remember that 'humanity is amazing'

I thought that 'H' would be read as H or E, but when a police officer in Uzbekistan memorized my passport number, he said "N" without changing his face complexion.

Since Uzbekistan was a member country of the Soviet Union like Russia, Cyrillic characters were used on a daily basis.

Hello, this is Takuya Sudo @ Charriderman who toured the world by bicycle . Cyrillic letters can be deciphered after training, but Thai letters and Arabic letters were refreshing.

Greek Orthodox (Eastern Orthodox Church) has deeply influenced the birth of Cyrillic letters. First of all, Glagolitic letters were created to propagate the Greek Orthodox into the Slavic Sphere (Slavic region). This Gurugoru character was suitable for the notation of Slavic languages, but it was complicated. For that reason, Improve to bring it closer to the Greek letters later became Cyrillic letters. Cyrillic characters which have been popularized in Slavic spheres are still used in the former Soviet bloc, such as Russia and Kazakhstan, and the Balkans such as Bulgaria, Macedonia and Serbia.

Both α (alpha) and β (beta), which are the etymology of the alphabet, originate in Greek.

However, the basic one is independent of one character. In addition, the notation (right horizontal writing) that allows Arabic letters to advance from right to left is standard. Iranian Persian characters and Pakistani Urdo letters are also based on Arabic letters.
