Recession- not here

Not in Wellington, anyway. That is, if the crowds in the cafes, resturaunts and bars was anything to go by, last Sunday. Shed Five was full to bursting, as were all the surrounding establishments.

The harbour cats were packed with sightseers out for the harbour tour and the helicopters were all in the air flying about.

This recession doesn't compare with the last one I remember- the late '80's.

Christchurch 1988 was dead- all the bars were empty and had $1 bottles for happy hour in an attempt to draw punters in- great if you had money!

That was the time 25% of the Christchurch workforce wasn't. Nothing like this time and with far less about it on TV and n the papers...
