And it is all right

We are ending day 2 in Chch with Mark and Stacey.  They are much brighter today having had both a long sleep and a hot shower!  Gran has enjoyed meeting Stacey.  Nana has really clicked with Stacey - they share a love of a good bargain!!
Gran got weighed today she now weighs in at 31.7kg - you think she can't lose much more then she proves you can! 

One of the things we did today was go for a walk in central Chch - Mark showed Stacey all his old haunts - 
  • This wall is what is left of my apartment
  • This gap is where I used to work
  • This hole was my old drinking spot
Reminiscing Chch style!!  

Tomorrow we will see Gran again (well actually the others will I can't as I might be infectious) then head off to Hokitika.  Reminiscing could actually involve structures that still exist.
We were all fascinated by the posters that are dotted around Christchurch as part of social marketing programme aimed at building up resilience of Chch people
It has been less depressing this trip as the signs of rebuilding are more obvious.
