That could have been interesting, but I think it might have taken a bit of manoeuvring to make that work without it feeling overly convenient for the plot (also, I think Marina’s father was Indian—so something else might have been needed). As it was, I think the sheer unexpected coincidence of that friend (whose name I have also forgotten—Belinda?) seeing Anders came across as fairly realistic—if very lucky!—rather than convenient, because no one was actually looking for him at the time.
