It was sunny and warm today and I got up "early" to go for a walk around the botanical gardens with Y. We ventured out into town, the parts of it which are not cordoned off to rubber neck a little. Saw Chch cathedral for the first time since the quake and found out that Elmo Courts (? The peachy coloured building opposite of the Police) has been demolished. That was pretty sad since I have some fond memories of it. Another building I like is still standing though, but probably not for much longer.
