Our classmates in Japan held their mini-reunion ahead of schedule, and shared their news of '79 Connects on 7/9!  Sophie Tomoko Shinozaki-Ishida, Joan Khattab, and Laila Kholossi met up on May 20th  in a sushi bar (for foreigners)  in Tokyo.  Joan Khattab was on her way to another city in Asia, with her mom and daughter. Joan contacted Sophie and Laila and they got together. That is Joan on the far left, Sophie, then Joan's mom, Laila Kholoussi and then Joan's daughter.
