Victor texted me last night that there had been another earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand. I didn't want to believe it, and I especially didn't want to believe that there were fatalities this time. During the last big quake in September, not a soul was lost.
Pictures this morning make it clear how devastated the city is. "Whole" pictures are from 10 months ago, when Victor and I were there. The other pictures are from the BBC today (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-12533722). Christchurch Cathedral is from both sides 10 months ago (full on and then the spire next to the sculpture), but in the aerial view its spire is gone. Awful.
