    Hi Mr Harmsen, I’ve been trying to find you for ages! It’s really off topic but I’m now 16 years old and have been a great friend of your daughter Lisa back in Beijing, my we were great family friends we lived in Shunyi and Lisa used to always play with us, we moved to New York and lost contact. By the way I just finished the AP World History course and read on alot about China in World War 2. Thanks for taking the time to read this comment, it would be great if you could ask Lisa if there was any way i can get in touch with her!
