Anyway, we were staying at Cathedral Square, so we had a good look around the city center from here, the base backpackers wasn't too exctiing except for birds flying around the kitchen. Christchurch is a really nice place, the internation busking festival was on while we were here, so we managed to see some of the talent on offer incding a brilliant juggler on a moncycle.
We went to see the fantastic botanical gardens, they really are something. On a more sombre note there were crowds around Catedrale square to watch the funeral of Edmund Hillary on the big screen they had set up there for it.
That night we met up with Ray and he cooked us a delious dinner in his house, fare play to him, thanks Ray. We had a great night, so chatting and taking it easy.
