No bloody eartquake can destroy the spirit such a lovely town...Hope the worst is over now and not to many damage is done.
Kind regards from Belgium!

It has been too long but I have finally made it back to Christchurch and I am pleased to report that it is still standing and looks better than ever - no earthquake will get her down - touch wood

We expected worse and we were pleasantly surprised, you really need to look high and low to find extreme levels of damage. Thanks CG

What a bizarre museum! Nevertheless, fantastic shots of this lovely city. So happy the majority of it survived the earthquake with no majorly detrimental consequences.

It's an Art Gallery exhibiting world famous Ron Mueck's sculptures - I have a newfound appreciation for the man, the detail is just incredible - one can only imagine how much time and effort went into these sculptures. Thanks for the comment

No worries mate, that's art for you - it draws many responses. I for one admire the perseverance and the detail that is produced by these sculptures. Thanks for the comment
