Day 30 – Christchurch

November 14, 2012

I mentioned in yesterday’s blog that we intended to walk around the city today to get a better feel of the damage caused by the earthquakes. We did that and literally walked around the perimeter of the red zone which is really quite extensive. It took us nearly an hour to do this. So instead of writing about what we saw I’m going to download a range of pictures of what we saw – both the destruction and the restart areas where they are using containers as units for a range of different shops. The aim is to give you a flavour of where this great city is currently at. The first group show the destruction caused and the final ones show what progress is being made. Though slow at least there is a vibrancy aroundĀ the Restart area and people feel really optimistic about the future though still living in fear of further tremors or even earthquakes. At least for now a new and vibrant Christchurch is rising from the ashes.
