I have been away for the last 8 days so would like to document my trip over the next few blogs. I lived in Christchurch for close to 30 years but thankfully had left when the earthquakes struck. I have been back a few times and this time I really felt a little more optimistic. The Deans park market was booming.
I had never visited The Tannery before. What a wonderful transformation of an old building.
It added to the feeling that things were on the move.
A night visit to the central city created mixed feelings. At times it still felt like a war zone but then some cool little intitiative would pop up to make us smile.
Still, on balance lovely things are emerging from the ashes and creativity is coming to the fore. FG
