I also photographed in color a beautiful yellow flowered vine not unlike a morning glory. We took no specimens as there were no seeds and the flowers wilted quickly. We were back by 11:30.
Late in the afternoon we went to the town to see some old bronze cannon which Hugo had been commissioned to look up for Daan. There were three and I photographed them so that Daan could see if they were what he wanted. The price asked was 25 guilders each and they could probably be bought for 16 guilders. The crowd of natives that collected to watch me photograph them almost blocked the street. Hugo found later from the KPM man that it was forbidden to ship such things out of the country. He probably thought that Daan, a resident of the Dutch East Indies was acting as an intermediary to help us get them to the U.S. He agreed, however, to ship them to Daan if he sent for them.
Packed up in the evening and between times we amused ourselves by watching the lizards on the wall catch insects.
