1. ohisashiburidesu
= It has been a while (since we saw each other last)
- Used when people have not seen each other for a while.

2. okawari gozaimasenka
= How have you been? (Have there been changes?)
This phrase, I think, covers two areas in its implications. Remember
Japanese language is generally vague in meanings ;-)
(1) If there have been any changes or happenings in the person's life in
(2) If there have been any changes in the person's health.
