A Chile Winter: Los Dominicos

Photo-blogging Chile with Maria Barragan-Santana. Watch for more of Maria’s photos as the summer (or winter, as it may be) goes on! Updates Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

The other afternoon I had the opportunity to visit Los Dominicos, Santiago’s largest crafts market. It was fun to explore and wander about the lively pueblito filled with colors, textures, shapes, and sounds.

I found everything from sculptures and paintings to an amorómetro — which I may have been tempted to try! There was even a small aviary in the center with an extravagant peacock!
