I had a couple of beers here yesterday. Was a little busier than in these shots. But it was hot and sunny so that's hardly surprising. Not a bad spot. In the new Riverside market.

I clambered all over many of those lovely rocks on the Port Hills in my youth. Under the tutorship of a delightful Australian physicist who was killed in the Himalayas the following year.

:thumbup: to the first bit. Not so much for the last bit, although I guess they at least went out doing what they loved.

Anyway, I've been slack. So here's a bit of a picture dump.

My wife and my in-laws would disagree frown at that suggestions. It's a rather out of date concept of Christchurch. It's population is still more eurocentric than most of NZ, but it's hardly mono cultural.

This from 2013. Diversity has increased since then
Ethnic groups in Christchurch City and New Zealand
2013 Census

Ethnic group(1) Christchurch City (percent) New Zealand (percent)
European 83.9 74.0
Māori 8.5 14.9
Pacific peoples 3.1 7.4
Asian 9.4 11.8
Middle Eastern, Latin American, African 1.0 1.2
Other ethnicity
New Zealander 1.9 1.6
