Christchurch deja-vu

For the third time Christchurch hit the world news stage with an earthquake.

People there have been living with aftershocks since the September 2010 shake, so the ground has not stopped moving for 10 months now. I feel so sad for those people being hit for the third time. Again the same suburbs as last times. Just as things were on the way up, the earth shook them out of it. Liquification again one of the major issue.

I can completely understand people loosing confidence and loosing the will to build up again. More than actual devastation of buildings and livelihood I think this time it destroyed souls of those wanting to stay in their beloved city.  Poor Christchurch, poor NZ.

About Gilraen

My blog is simply about my life. I moved countries for the first time in 1993. I lived in the Netherlands, UK and NZ. The initial idea was to keep my overseas friends up-to-date with what was going on in my life. The blog, like me, is always changing and evolving.
