1. Other stuff I’ve been up to…

    I’ve also been to Wellington and Christchurch since my last post…

    Christchurch was kind of sad. It’s still in a complete state of mess from the earthquakes a year ago- half the buildings are falling apart, and the other half are expecting to fall apart, or else temporary, or empty plots of land. I took some photos, but I really don’t know which/ if to display (I was only there for a few days, so no time to re-shoot). 

    Wellingon, on the other hand, was awesome and happy - it’s seemed to me like what would happen if someone took the fake Warner Bros. city, handed it to a foodie, then a designer, and then handed it to a fine artist, and then took out everything that wasn’t awesome enough. Te Papa is the best museum I have ever been to. The interactive/ immersive quality it has make it really easy to find the contents interesting (for all ages), rather than putting a barrier between subject and viewer.
