I met a friend outside the temporary council building (the old Rexel warehouse) for a milkshake yesterday - someone had set up a caravan/container serving lunches and shakes.

We sat on the old cable reels from Rexel, and watched the ongoing construction of a new central bus exchange.

The mayor still has somewhere to park his car, but it's probably not quite as flash a location as it used to be...

The thing is, it seemed totally normal, and relaxing, and social to be sitting in a carpark, drinking a shake, watching demolition crews at work, surrounded by the sounds of construction and not a piece of greenery in sight. I think we are definitely now adjusted to the new ChCh.
