Pomaire (Pottery Village)
After much busyness that has been going on here at the school, we had this last Saturday free. It was a much needed break for many of us!! Our destination was Pomaire....which is a town located about 40 miles outside the city of Santiago. We started off on our journey in the morning taking the Metro (subway) to a bus station. From there we found a bus and loaded up!! Here is a picture of those who went, excluding me (Brian) who was taking the picture. Left to right is Lily, Megan, Joel, Emily, Nora, Kari, Phyllis. This place is known for its pottery and there was lots of it!!! All the pottery was made there, most of it being made right in the backs of the shops. We spent the day looking through the shop and admiring the many different masterpieces made from clay. It is amazing to see the end result, but its not always fun to look at the starting product. Likewise we are no different, God continues to mold and sculpt each one of us into what He desires us to be.
