One of the must-see things in Christchurch for us was the Cashel Mall which was badly affected by the February earthquake. We had heard that it was now a thriving mall; a unique rebirth in a city which has suffered so much. Since October it has been operating from containers. All kinds of shops, banks and cafes have sprung up. Their surroundings have been landscaped and even the seagulls have moved in.
I've taken a lot more pictures, they can be viewed here.
