I took a stroll through town before and after attending Christchurch Diwali Festival 2018.

The rebuild of the Christchurch central city after the earthquakes in 2011 finally feels like its picking up the pace. Many projects are complete, and the landscape is filling up with new buildings and public spaces.

Victoria square has re-opened

A very nice documentary. Good to see devastation being turned around and life for the people of Christchurch being improved.
