We woke up this morning to the news that an earthquake has struck New Zealand. We in Auckland is unaffected by the 7.1 Richter scale quake in Christchurch. We are on different islands, and it takes more than one hour to fly, and many hours to drive as we are separated by the Cooks strait.

Thank you to many of you who asked.

This is the famous Avon river. This photo was taken in 1978.

I am glad that you were not effected by the earthquake, but there are some bloggers in Christchurch and not far from Christchurch and I am very much concerned about their fate.

I saw the damaged done by the earthquake on the news, it's so sad. There's so many beautiful historic buildings in CC that I hope didn't suffer much damage.
