On our first day of touring together Mum, Dad and I drove around looking at the Red Zone. The red zone is the cordoned area of the CBD that suffered the most damage and covered nearly all of the CBD after the February 2011 quake. The Restart Mall is a part of Cashel Mall, a well-known pedestrian shopping mall that was damaged.
The restart mall is made up of imported shipping containers that have been colourfully decorated and fitted out as banks, cafes and retail shops. It is a great way of getting people back into the city.
