Christchurch CBD Two years after Earthquakes

This month I went to Christchurch, my  plan was to check out the Edwardian heritage park of Ferrymead, but this didn't eventuate. I did get to look around the CBD and thought I'd share some of my photos.

Since the devastating earthquakes 2 years ago (learn about there HERE) over 1000 unsafe buildings have been demolished with still more to come down. Cranes now dominate the skyline and tourists like me wander near-empty streets.

  1. A sad sight! A shame you didn't get to Ferrymead. Something to try next time.
