Ahh it's been a while now since I've seen a portrait of Mr Mao in Christchurch....

But we still get our fair share of polluted days, particularly in winter - this comes from the Los Angeles style inversion layer.

Some rare views from Clarendon Towers

From the 17th floor penthouse of Clarendon Towers!
Sadly I was unable to get any pics from the north side of the building where you can see CHC's tallest office & apartment buildings Still great views of Cathedral Square and over the park to the alps.

You'll never find these views on the net.



Looking East

Hotel Grand Chancellor is to the South Island what Hotel Odessa is to the Ukraine.

& West

That's North Hagley mate, Part of Hagley park which also houses the Christchurch Botanic Gardens, sporting grounds, a hospital, an artificial lake, Canterbury Museum and a golf course. It's massive too - 2km sq - one of the worlds true great urban parklands.

Looks to have more of a European flavour to it than neighbouring Australia does.

Indeed. The city was planned in Europe before the settlers even arrived.

Brilliant Cartel.

The Autumn colours are stunning!

Is that Hornby you are skydiving over?

A Christchurch person's favourite pastime - standing on a bridge and staring into the river...
