Atheists and Orthodox both call for Esperanto!

 I once met an interesting person named Indi, born in Curacao of Indian background, migrated to Canada and lived a generation in Australia. I'm not certain if this is the same Indi.  I met Indi in Israel in 2000 in a leg of her trip  around the world trip.

Jekaterinburg and Glazov, Russia during Zamenhof Day Festivities with Olga Shilyaeva

Esperanto Clubs in Russia may exist about every hundred miles along the Transsiberian Railway. I past Glazov and visited Jekaterinburg, Russia during my train-ride on my way to Vietnam.  Our Esperanto Caravan organizer was from another city not far away, Perm.

In Vietnam I met an enthusiastic youth from Glazov, Olga Shilyaeva, who organized dozens of Esperanto speakers to teach an introduction to a language they knew well. I taught Hebrew to a Pakistani and an Afghani friend among others.

A few months before Zamenhof Day (Esperanto founder's birthday) on December 15th (2013) Olga requested greetings from Esperantists around the world and put a video together. I'm in the middle. It was new technology for me.

Greeting came from Brazil, Colombia, France, Vietnam and the USA.
