Security barriers and roadworks to repair underground infrastructure are everywhere. The older buildings in the centre have suffered particularly, but even modern buildings are now derelict. Really sad to see.
Whether you are personally religious or not, it is undeniable that the large church ...

Next stop was to see more yellow eyed penguins and we did, 2 almost crossed the road right in front of us.
