Black Pottery

Wow! As soon as I found out that we were going to stop through Matagalpa on this delegation I started to research this city to kindout how to make the best of it. Someone passed me the MOON travel book for Nicaragua and guess what I found?!!? In Matagalpa they have Black pottery! I was soo exited, All I talked about for 15 days was Black pottery.
Its just beautiful stuff and I obtained my first piece of black pottery while in Oaxaca Mexico in 2003 and was planning future trips just so I could go back and get some more. But yea for me I got some while on our Sister City delegation. I must say in closing that there is more to Matagalpa then just pottery, its is a charming city full of life and history. If you are going to be in Nicaragua spend some time in Matagalpa you wont regret it. Check back for more tips and Pic of my Nica Trip ;)
