Amidst its rekindling, Christchurch has embraced the lighter side of life.
Murals mark the sides of surviving buildings, like this commentary on climate change.
And this one flawlessly depicting reconstruction. (Yes, that’s paint.)
Wizards can be seen working their magic around the city.
And buskers abound.
Fun and games are used as gap filler.
Including dance parties out on the street.
And it’s always a good day for 10 holes of mini golf.
Even the restaurants have an amusing design, like a sink on the back of the toilet.
Or your burger delivered via pneumatic tube.
“A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. They’re jolted by every pebble on the road.”
It would seem Christchurch can’t even be jolted by a 6.3 Magnitude Earthquake.
