Our man in Colombo

Dear Orchidians,

I just came back from a short gem-buying trip in Sri Lanka, where I
met Ahmed Shareek. We had a good time going to the Gem City of
Ratnapura, looked at lots of nice stones and had great buying
experience. “Sri Lanka is a land like no other”, says the logo of the
Sri Lankan tourist board. It is true in every sense, Visitors are
still few, stones are plenty - beaches are long, and food is spicy.
Ahmed was there for me with his patience, knowledge and unparalleled
generosity. If you thought of Sri lankan stones or going to
Sri-Lanka, Ahmed Shareek is your man.

Thank you, and Merry Xmas to you all.
