We had 48 hours in Christchurch, New Zealand. We were in a hotel next to the Antarctic Center (for which I neglected to get a picture). Which was nice because Monday morning, we rolled out of bed and trundled over to get on the plane for Antarctica. It was away from town so we had to figure out how to get anywhere interesting. We arrived Saturday, local time, 2PM. 1PM Sunday we got our cold weather gear, i.e big red coat and bunny boots. A few other travelers and I found the Center bus would take us downtown which was just opened up after recovering from the earthquake last Feb. You can see that this monument (which looks intact) is fenced off so it probably is structurally compromised.
