Ceroc Flash Mob - Christchurch City Super Ceroc 2012 - YouTube

A lovely sunny day with autumn colours and happy people enjoying the new Restart Container Mall on a perfect day last week...
How far we have come.. how much there still is to do.
As I watched the dancers, little things caught my eye - the diggers, the empty spaces, the missing high rises in the distance.
Only the distant Bridge of Rememberance pins us to this site as being Cashel Mall, the place of death and injury and destruction such a short time ago.

I looked back for a post quake video of the area - shocking, raw footage that was hard enough to watch the first time, but now more poignat as it features features people we have come to know, their backgroumd, who died, who lived....
Enjoy the sun, the music and the dancing and the joy of the day... and spare a thought for the people still dealign with the trauma of the day it all fell down.

  1. The couple in fluoro vests and hard hats just make it even more part of the New Christchurch. I was in Cashel Mall on 22 Feb. In fact, that's me in this video: http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/christchurch-earthquake-2011/12-51/videos/6410834/That-day.
    I'm finding it uplifting to see how much new life there is in Cashel Mall now. It's not the same place as it was That Day, but its better.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. I saw that video Claudia - a terrifying day for you
