Then a quick trip around the city to photograph some of the many fine art deco building in Napier

A large amount of the Hawkes Bay and especially Napier was destroyed by an Earthquake and subsequent fire in 1931.

Almost all of the cities buildings were rebuilt 1932-34 in Art Deco style .... Napier considers itself the art deco capital of the world

The test was lost by lunchtime and we made the uneventful drive back to Auckland.

Just one week until my Round the World Trip

Tension is building
