We're aggressively seeking additional colonial Spanish cannons similar to those in the picture for a research project. They usually range in length from about 30 to about 50 inches and in weight from about 75 to about 160 lbs., so bringing some back would not be much of a problem, just declare excess baggage and make sure they are unloaded before checking them in. All the presidios in Mexico and other areas colonized by Spain had these small cannons, so there are probably some in Guada, you just have to ask around. If you dont want to take them with you, maybe get some contact information for our team.
Well, this time tomorrow, the Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise, I'll be in Guadalajara. Looks like work will be from dark to dark, so might not have much chance at cannon pix, but I WILL ask around.
I am EXHAUSTED. Not a chance to get out and do any serious searching. 20 minute taxi ride from hotel to work early then late returning. NO one I rubbed shoulders with knew anything about cannons. The local folks on the production floor, as well as most other folks in the area, worked 12 hour shifts.
Great time. The people I encountered EARED my respect for their warmth, values, and professional practices. A nation struggling to do better. Construction everywhere. Little shops and restaurants EVERYWHERE. A few words of broken spanish and a smile was our ticket.
Next time, now that I've learned the cost (time) we're planning a day or so of vacation after work befroe returning.
