Improvisation with Nova Kenyon in Learn It Town


A fish seller in the seafood market in a suburban area of New York city was surprised when he cleaned a fresh salmon’s innards. His special extra sharp ceramic knife was chipped on something when he cut the bottom of the fish. After examination, he found a more than 7 carat diamond ring in the innards of the fish. The estimated price of the ring is around one million dollars. The lucky salesman showed us the salmon that brought him this extraordinary gift. Beside selling this fish, he is planning to sell the diamond ring, too. With the money he will get for the ring, he wants to buy a seafood shop in the center of the city.
