New Zealand – Part Tres

Before leaving for Melbourne, we actually stopped over for one day in Christchurch, South Island of New Zealand. This city reminded me a lot of Melbourne.

Sadly the disastrous earthquake back in 2011 has caused some serious damage to the buildings and infrastructure, especially in the  central city and the eastern suburbs. The city is still recovering from this incident. We took a day tour around the city and were shown the remains of some of the buildings and infrastructure that were severely affected by the quake. Some of the people left their home and never came back, some still stayed to rebuild their home.

I’m looking forward to going back to visit this city again in a couple of years to see the development.
