22nd of February was the one year anniversary of the horrific Christchurch earthquakes, the third major series after the initial September ones, previously. It was the first and only series where people died. 185 in all. To commemorate we went to one of the memorials in Hagley Park. There were lots of people who came to join from schools and work places. All 185 names were read out, and a two-minute silence followed. All throughout the city flowers could be seen on road cones, such as this one, shown. It was a beautifully sad day. Kia kaha.
