Although this trip was interesting, I was surprised to find that the local artisans seem to all make the same stuff. They should learn to differentiate their craft, they should sign their craft and they should provide shipping. I would have bought many pieces if I were able to easily ship right from the stores. It was interesting to see the potter making the pieces by hand. We had an American girl as a tourguide in training, along with our Chilian guide. I have to admit, that although she was very nice, I would be disappointed to get an US American as a guide who hasn't grown up there knowing and living the customs. Also, be careful about the day you take your trip because many of the stores where closed the day we went Tuesday.

I wanted to make the most of a short stopover in Santiago, and to see something of the countryside I decided on the trip to Pomaire and was delighted with the choice. Suzanne and Tessa both accompanied on the trip, so with two lovely ladies looking after me and very comfortable transport, a great day was guaranteed. They were very informative in response to my non stop questions as I was keen to learn as much as possible about Chile with a future return trip in mind. The traditional pottery cottage industry and craft in the village was very interesting and the village itself had a special character with a range of crafts for sale. I bought a lovely throw rug. Lunch offered the opportunity to try local cuisine and Suzanne and Tessa gave me a complete overview of local dishes to help me make a choice. A great day and thoroughly recommended. I'll be back ..............
