photo-2

memorial for the 185 people in christchurch who lost their lives to the earthquake in 2011. visitors were encouraged to choose a seat that spoke to them and remember the loved ones lost. most of the buildings are still crumbled and abandoned. this part of christchurch that was once a busy city is almost like a ghost town now.

more random yet very interesting art at the canterbury museum.

    Hi Desiree, grandpa and I were there at Christchurch before the earth quake. This area was so beautiful and the old church was history to this town. Glad you are seeing all the history of the places you visit. Be safe. Love Grammy
