Dacjo's other passion which remained with him all his life was Esperanto, the International Language. The flag above is the Esperanto flag and the creator of Esperanto, Ludovic Zamenhof.
His name Dacjo is an Esperanto version of David which could be translated as 'Dave'.
My parents had three children, my brother Stefan, my sister Rowena and me. We all speak Esperanto. Our mother died in 1962. Dacjo eventually retired to a Buddhist monastery near Kyoto in Japan, called Kyoto Syudoin, where he stayed for seventeen years. After that he shifted back to Dunedin, New Zealand where we bought a house and I cared for him until a car accident in 1997. He died from his injuries four days after the accident.
