Post-quake social life

We were lucky to be able to attend the opening of a contemporary jewellery exhibition in Christchurch this week - Blood Sports by Dunedin designer Jane Dodd. As with everything in Christchurch right now, the setting was unorthodox, yet totally acceptable to those of us currently living here. For example, the gallery entrance:

Being right on the fringe of the red zone, the previous shop front was closed, but you could watch the going-ons through the large windows at the front of the gallery:

Before the quake, there was a cafe in this space, but unfortunately it has not re-opened yet. If it had, then I would happily spend whole mornings and afternoons watching the slow and steady demolition of the CBD.
