Day 23 in New Zealand: Rebuilding Christchurch

The rebuilding of a city…

When we visited Christchurch is 2010 it was in between the two big earthquakes that hit the city. The second one that took place in 2011 was the most devastating and had a lasting change in the cityscape.

On a rainy Saturday, I took a stroll through the center of the city. It was an interesting experience to see the blend of empty damaged buildings that have seen better days among thriving new buildings full of life signaling the greatness still ahead.
