NZ #2: Christchurch [Jan 2nd]

Christchurch is the largest city in the South Island on New Zealand. I did not go to the city centre, instead I wandered around in my accommodation’s neighbourhood. There is a lot of graffiti and street art, several houses are painted with 3-D-pictures.

After several earthquakes lots of Christchurch’s buildings collapsed. So between newbuilt buildings, old houses and street art locations there are collapsed buildings and demolished sites. Everywhere are containers, they preserve walls from collapsing onto pedestrians.

Now, home again, I am sorry that I did not have more time to spend in Christchurch. With the delayed arrival and the jetlag I was merely getting a thought of this town. If I ever come back to NZ, I will stay longer in Christchurch and its surrounding area.
