Diamond is his faith....until God save him :)

Yeah...I meet him when I did travelling from Blikpapan to Banjarmasin (600km). I went to the famous traditional diamond mine in Martapura, Banjarmasin, South Kalimantan. He born, live & work as diamond miner until right now 82 years old, and still active. we call Kai for the old man. He also sell the gem for tourist.
