Post Kindly Seniors, Evaluate my precis

During my vacation last May, I had a hard time choosing a tour. Flights to Japan, Hong Kong and Australia are just too
common. What I wanted was somewhere exciting and exotic, a place where I could be spared from the holiday tour
crowds. I was so happy when John called up, suggesting a trip to Cherokee, a county in the state of Oklahoma. I agreed
and went off with the preparation immediately.
We took a flight to Cherokee and visited a town called Qualla Boundary surrounded by magnificent mountain scenery,
the town painted a paradise before us. With its Oconaluftee Indian Village reproducing tribal crafts and lifestyles of the
18th century and the outdoor historical pageant Unto These Hills playing six times weekly in the summer nights, Qualla
Boundary tries to present a brief image of the Cherokee past to the tourists.
Despite the language barrier, we managed to find our way to the souvenir shops with the help of the natives. The shops
were filled with rubber tomahawks and colorful traditional war bonnets, made of dyed turkey feathers. Tepees, coneshaped
tents made from animal skin, were also pitched near the shops. "Welcome! Want to get anything?" We looked
up and saw a middle-aged man smiling at us. We were very surprised by his fluent English. He introduced himself as
George and we ended up chatting till lunch time when he invited us for lunch at a nearby coffee shop.
"Sometimes, I've to work from morning to sunset during the tour season. Anyway, this is still better off than being a
woodcutter ..." Remembrance weighed heavy on George's mind and he went on to tell us that he used to cut firewood
for a living but could hardly make ends meet. We learnt from him that the Cherokees do not depend solely on trade for
survival. During the tour off-peak period, the tribe would have to try out other means for income. One of the successful
ways is the "Bingo Weekend". On the Friday afternoons of the Bingo weekends, a large bingo hall was opened,
attracting huge crowds of people to the various kinds of games like the Super Jackpot and the Warrior Game Special.
According to George, these forms of entertainment fetch them great returns.
Our final stop in Qualla Boundary was at the museum where arts, ranging from the simple hand-woven oak baskets to
wood and stone carvings of wolves, ravens and other symbols of Cherokee cosmology are displayed.
Back at home, I really missed the place and I would of course look forward to the next trip to another exotic place. . . . .Precis:


"An exotic trip to cherokee"

According to writer,A trip to cherokee,in the state of oklahoma was amused.He visited Quella boundary with his friend. Tribal craft and beautiful scenes of nature had covered the country.it appeared as old image of cherokee. They arrived at memorial shops with the help of native instead of having language differences.There were different types of hand-made goods in a shop.George named shopkeeper invited them for a lunch and told them about his live hood of wood cut that was incredible to raise his family.He also told them that charokee not only depend on trade but also adopted other way to earn income during the peak period of tour.Bingo wiko which concerned with various games was considered useful way to earn livelihood.They also amused themselve with the visit of museum.Hand-made goods were found there.It was unforgettable visit.
