55 - Acoma

He heard they built it high to keep it safe, but eventually everything falls to invaders and technology. Today he feels welcome in his t-shirt and goofy hat until he overhears a native quip, "If we don't like you, we'll toss you over."

Watch your back. Don't haggle over pottery. The past is not forgotten.

Can you tell a story in exactly 55 words?  No need to toss anyone off a cliff - post your tale on the G-Man's site!

tourists beware! Make sure you stop by the gift shop.

Don't haggle over the pottery indeed. I would stay away from the tops of walls if I was him. And maybe take my money elsewhere with me.

It is always difficult to know whether to haggle or not especially if you are from a country where haggling and tipping is rare as in Australia. I think we should always remember as tourists that if we want the item we should agree to the price or walk away. If they are willing to bargain they will call you back. If you are desperate for the item just buy it or regret it later.
