Calling All History Buffs

Here are a few things I bet you didn’t know about Guadalajara. (Having read a full 1 and half pages in my AAA Tour Guide Book on the subject I am widely considered the foremost authority on the subject.)

It seems that the early Spanish settlers were, in fact, chased here from Zacatecas by he Indians (who resented the Spaniards because they stole their homelands and kept trying to sell them $400.00 deductible auto insurance.)

Early conflicts went something like this.

Settler: The king off Spain says I won this land now and , by the way, the policy does not cover glass breakage.

Indian: (Throws rock)

Settler: Ow! Stop that.

Indian: (Hits the settler with blunt object)

Settler: Ow!

Indian: Hee hee hee

So the settlers finally left there and arrived here in 1542.

Nothing happened or the next 278 years (Although some of the original settlers died.)
