Most weekends, I do a regular walk around the city. I usually start in the Restart Mall, then go down down Oxford Terrace, up into the Square, through to New Regent street and then either back down Manchester to High Street. I had a slight variation this week – going along the Avon River on Kilmore Street. The views looking back into the city from the Avon are really odd now and some parts of the river are really overgrown (just by Colombo Street by the Town Hall). Then there is a brand new building – the Forte Health hospital on Kilmore. It all so bizarre still, even after years of earthquakes, demolitions, and now construction.
