PECTOPAH

PECTOPAH: restaurant in Russian, however many foreigners read it as PE-KTO-PAKH.

It became a joke with my friends. It came about from my friend D showing a group of German tourists around St. Petersburg; they kept asking about going to  PECTOPAH, because there were so MANY of them.

Why did this oddity pop into my mind? Because I am starting to teach private lessons in Russian again. I missed that. Messing with people's minds by inflicting Cyrillic on them. It will be awesome.
