Earthquake report- an afternoon in the central business district

DSC08437

The Christchurch area suffered two major earthquakes- one in September, 2010 and an even larger one in February of 2011 in which 185 people died. Aftershocks, some major, continued to rattle people’s homes and psyches for months. On Saturday Forrest and I took a bus to the central business area to view the extensive damage. One post won’t do justice. Everyone we’ve met brings up the earthquake and has a story to tell. I hope I’ll be able to share some of them in future posts.
