This trip was my first experience to be educated abroad. Before my arrival, I had no previous experience in the field of gemology.  I was as a new born fowl, unaware of my surroundings, but always keen to absorb what came ahead.It only dawns on me now how valuable the knowledge and the actual gemstones are.
