I hope I haven't overseen to mention others. That's HTLAL live to meet our forum members in person!

I noticed a few names more, but mostly we can't see who is on the forum and who isn't.

Yes, I already met her at the Gathering last year and also this year we spoke mainly Esperanto but also English together.

Solfrid Cristin, according to Volte, she said hi to you at least three times and you
always ignored her, so she never got to introduce herself.

(Do not post identifying details on this thread; she is very concerned about privacy)

I neither confirm nor deny having been at the gathering. ;-)

I do deny at least one of the above descriptions of events; I don't think anyone was ignoring anyone. (I'm posting despite being rather sleepy to minimize misconceptions).

I could not have given any identifying details if you had given me a million bucks. I cannot for the life of me
remember anyone who said hi to me without me answering back, nor having spoken to anyone from
Switzerland, but half the time I was running from one lecture to another. At one point there was a guy who
called me by name, and asked if I was a member of some group I did not catch the name of. I was running
towards room three, knowing that I would have to stand for the next two hours if I did not get there in time,
and was so stressed out that I just answered that I did not think so and ran further. Only a couple of minutes
later did it click that he had said HTLAL, so I searched for him for the next couple of hours - and asked every
guy who looked remotely like him if he was the guy who had talked to me earlier (not feeling particularly
intelligent accosting a dozen unknown men who denied having talked to me). I found him in the end, gave
him a good hug and he joined me at the first part of the lecture I was at.

I also asked the others if there were any more HTLALers around, and no one said anything about Volte being
there. I have wanted to get to know her for years! I talked to every member of HTAL I managed to identify,
and as you may recall I asked if there was any possibility to have a little HTAL-meeting. . Lots of people came
up to me and asked if I was Cristina, having seen me at the video with Richard, and I had a chat with every
single one, and gave my calling card to a few and was connected through Facebook with a lot more. I do not
understand how she managed not to talk to me if she knew who I was.
