These latest earthquakes here in New Zealand made me think again of my last visit to my own shattered city. A sad visit, but heartened by the resilience of the people there. Pop-up container malls, bright paint everywhere, and the trams are running.
from the ashes
My thoughts are with the people of Kaikoura and all the other places badly affected by our 7.8 quake. Kia kaha New Zealand.
