Quirks of Christchurch


Amidst its rekindling, Christchurch has embraced the lighter side of life.

Murals mark the sides of surviving buildings, like this commentary on climate change.

Wizards can be seen working their magic around the city.

Fun and games are used as gap filler.

“A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. They’re jolted by every pebble on the road.”
