    "Where is she?"

    Hello, all!

    I am a complete newbie to Russian, and I am in the process of translating my favorite quote. I'm almost finished! This is what I am missing:

    "I don't know where she is."

    I can read and pronounce the Russian language very well except maybe the intonations. Spanish is the easiest for that!

    When I have the entire quote ready, I will post it here, and maybe someone will be able to tell me if it makes sense.

    Thanks, in advance!

    I don't know where she is.
    Я не знаю где она.

    Thanks, JJ!

    This is the first ever phrase that I am trying to write in Russian. This is an historic event, for sure!

    I'll write the Russian and English equivalents, and I hope someone can correct me if and when I'm wrong...

    Russian: "Моя бабушка начинала идти пять мили каждый день когда было шестьдесят лет. Она девяносто семь сейчас, и я не знаю где онa!"

    English (loosely): "My grandmother started walking five miles per day when she turned 60. She is now 97, and I don't know where she is!"

    Спасибо!

    Мило
