Destroyed City

Destroyed City

I spent a few days in Christchurch NZ while traveling to and from Antarctica with the USAP. I had no idea how much devastation their earthquakes had wrought. Much of the city center is abandoned now - its a mix of empty lots where buildings once stood, or else buildings like this one that still stand, but are damaged and abandoned. The place is empty and feels creepy - like zombies could appear at any moment. But there's also plenty of rebuilding, and you also can't help feeling that in time something wonderful will emerge.
