We got into Christchurch later last night and had some din din, drinks and hit the hay. Got up and explored Christchurch for the morning.
For those of you that don’t know, Christchurch was hit hard by earthquakes in 2010 and 2011 and they are still recovering and rebuilding. There is a shopping center in the center of town that is completely built out of large shipping container – so the stores are in these containers. Something to see – and shows you how the rebuilding process is going strong.
This is Christchurch Cathedral and it was clearly hit hard. But it serves as a symbol for the city where there’s work to go, but that being said, they haven’t lost their heart and spirit.
A beautiful sight.
