This morning we had an aftershock at 9.09 am with a magnitude of 5.5. The quake was at a depth of 15 km in the South West of Christchurch near Rollerston. It has been said that is the 6th biggest quake since the september 7.1 quake. Lots of stuff has fallen of shelfs, more damage to be expected in the inner city but power is still on this time. In our house everything rattled and shaked but only 2 little things fell on the floor. The lamps kept swinging for a long time.
I saw on a few Christchurch blogs tribute videos of Christchurch and I found a nice one myself. It is a kind of way for us to say goodbye to well loved places in the city and hang on to the memories. Not only to memories of the beautiful buildings but also of the carefree times that we were shopping on the markets in the city, had a snack at the art centre,visited my kids at their amazing school in the city or just had a strol through the centre. The art centre my favourite is going to be rebuild but I heard already that it is going to take up to 15 years. I will be retired by that time and will have all the time to visit. Anyway the pictures and the music on the video are beautiful. Thanks to the maker
