As you will be aware Christchurch was hit by a 7.1 earthquake on Saturday 4 October at 4.35am.
The city is now returning to normal and visitors are being welcomed back to the garden city.
Though the photos on the news showed a lot of destruction, many parts of our beautiful city are largely untouched and 98% of our tourism operators are open and operating.
The University of Canterbury is open and lectures resume next week following the normal semester holiday break.
