Earthquake Update on Sunday 22nd of July a violent earthquake shook Wellington, and was felt up our valley! Details are at the linky – holy moly it was scary!
Wellington is divided into suburbs, you can think of them a bit like boroughs in New York City. Wellington is also built on a series of slow rolling hills, so the houses often climb up the hills in search of a good view, you can see how the houses rise into the distance.
This picture shows a glimpse of Thorndon, from the heights of the Botanical Gardens. Thorndon is an inner city suburb that combines Government, Business and residential houses like these making it a real mix. Wellington is large enough to pack a punch but small enough to retain a certain relaxed friendliness wherever you go.
