Day -2 & -1. Christchurch

We arrive late on Friday evening and have all day Saturday and Sunday to explore Christchurch. Our motel is on the edge of the CBD and the place has changed hugely since our last visit here which was after their devastating earthquakes in 2010 and 2011.

When we were last here the entire CBD was a red zone with no access allowed, and only a few shops in shipping containers had been assembled in some areas with cleared land.

Now, most of the damaged buildings have been removed. Entire city blocks, most of the buildings in the city are either newly built or have been demolished leaving behind a gravel lot.
