“If you ever go to Japan, can you give this newspaper clipping to my old buddy Hito? I have not seen him for at least 15 years, would be a way to reconnect.”
Yes, I had this unusual request, at work.
Japan has 127,368,088 inhabitants, anyway. This is twice the French population.
And even if the famous Hito is a (former) champion indoor ski and it would be in Tokyo, I will not turn into a detective to look for it (and risk to pass as a poorly-educated intruder, these Westerners really believe that everything is allowed!)
