Working Diligently

I found myself at Chichen Itza apparently on the day that the locals are allowed to sell trinkets and items inside the grounds for free, rather than having to pay a fee to get in. The great thing about these vendors is that they are huge hagglers, and if you don’t show that you really have an eye for something, they can be talked down quite handily. I really had little interest in the face that this guy was carving, more in the process that he was actually doing it in, but I must have stood in front of him for long enough to give him the impression that I was interested in a purchase. It started out about ten times more expensive than the last price he gave me, and he even continued to shout more prices as I walked on to explore more areas.
