A year after the tragic earthquake, the city centre is still off limits.
But those who lost their life in the disaster have not been forgotten.
The creative Christchurch people have forged a mall from freight containers! One local says: "We've risen up to conquer it all."
The locals love our Chris!
A shipping container hairdresser likens Chris to a "Ken doll". That's the second time he's been accused of being Barbie's boyfriend!
Chris meets a local brewer who actually uses oysters to make his beer!
Chris pops a lukewarm oyster in his mouth, mumbles: "I don't think I can swallow it," then spits it out.
The vet becomes an artist, transforming this area left bare by the earthquake into the city's first outdoor 'Music Room'.
Chris manages to find and decorate a piano and kit out the area ready for some fun!
The celebrations kick off. Those Christchurch folk sure know how to party!
