Butare was nice and the Ibiz restaurant is easily the best resto for tourists/expats. We visited the Gatagara pottery, their is a booklet about it (pasted in below). You need to take two busses to get there by public transportation. There are taxi-velo’s at the road to get you from the mainroad to the pottery. On the way back you have to wait for transportation to come through, and hope that there is still place. It worked out well for us. For transportation, it is best to use “Volcanoes” busses, they have the best drivers and are comfortable. Many accidents have occured with the smaller busses so people would do good to stay away from them.
