Christchurch 5 Years Later

Walking around Christchurch this morning, we were even more surprised at the extent of earthquake damage still visible and being reconstructed.  Even my Hair Salon told me they lost everything in the quake when their building was condemned due to damage.  They have been operating out of temporary premises ever since, having to move every 2 years or so as the constructions crews start to tackle wherever they’d been.

Here are some of the images Peter took this morning.

_DSC1390  Building was destroyed but, like so many others, has not yet been torn down.

_DSC1350  A small remnant of a destroyed building has been preserved as a monument.

_DSC1369  “Flag wall” is an artistic monument representing the shingles of the roof of a collapsed cathedral.
