Drove to Kaikoura today, the road south is open. Had to make a few detours and some of it is one way, but we made it. It was like a ghost town. A number of buildings are cordoned off, including the movie theatre (Art Deco).

A couple of things I keep forgetting to pass on:

People don't wear shoes, not just kids, adults too, even in the store.

They farm deer, huge deer that look like elk. According to what we have heard, the English brought deer here and without a predator they flourished. So they rounded them up, put a fence around them and raise them for meat.
