Personal reflections on urbanism, urban life and sustainable urban design in Wellington, New Zealand.

VJ day remembered

File under: ,

Wellingtonians gathered on Lambton Quay to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II and cheer our surviving soldiers.

The crowds were reasonable, though not as large or as animated as for Michael Campbell's recent parade. Still, it's good to see that laying one's life on the line to save one's country from Fascism and Japanese imperialism is almost as highly regarded as knocking a little ball around with a stick.

Was that today? I had no idea. That makes me twice as happy then that I gave my seat on the bus to an older man in lots of medals then.
