We did the 1 hour tour in the open top double deck bus. From the bus you could see that there is still a lot of work to be done to rebuild Christchurch following the earthquake 2 years ago. The streets are pretty clean now of the rubble and mess that must have had to be cleared. It is saddening to see so many heritage buildings being lost or yet to be pulled down as they are too damaged to repair. The vacant spaces where buildings once stood are a reminder of what Christchurch was once like. There is work going on everywhere as the bus passes buildings along the way and the way in which temporary buildings have been erected for commerce to continue is amazing. The tour may be somewhat centered around the earthquake and the damage Christchurch received but it is eye opening to see how the New Zealanders have overcome obstacles to continue on. The bus trip is well worth it and the commentary along the way is excellent.
