Our last stop on the south island was Christchurch, which is still recovering from two devastating earthquakes. Much of the city centre is still fenced off and awaiting demolition, but shipping containers and food carts are kick-starting the recovery. The botanical gardens provided a welcome escape from the destruction on a sunny Easter weekend.
