Esperantist from Estonia Visits Syracuse

Aare Metsamärt

Traveling via Pasporto Servo, Estonian esperantist Aare Metsamärt vizited several locations in New York, including New York City, Rochester, and Syracuse. He arrived in Syracuse on April 28th where his activities included a protest march to show support against global climate change, walks along Onondaga Lake, watching films in Esperanto, dining at various restaurants, and meeting local esperantists. “I am surprized that there are so many young Esperantists in Syracuse,” said Metsamärt. “Esperantists in my country are older. Esperanto is definitely alive here.”

Gatherings were held simultaneously in 25 other cities, including Seattle, San Francisco, Phoenix, Austin, Kansas City (Missouri), Chicago, Atlanta, New York City, Toronto, Montreal, Santiago de Querétaro Mexico, and Havana Cuba. The upstate event was organized by the Rochester Esperanto Club and the Esperanto Society of Syracuse.
