The Beginning of a Great Friendship!!! Meeting Soji Karasawa (and Yuya) in Italy August 1999.

I met Soji Karasawa and Yuya on a train going from Siena to Rome, August 1999. We sat across from each other in the train seating.

Neither of us spoke each others language so I pulled out my Franklin 14 language translator and saw that Japeneese was one of the languages.

After passing our little communicator back and forth for an hour we became formally introduced '-)))

In 2003 we visited each other in our home countries!!!
