I lost my virginity in Hawkes Bay, NZ

.........virginity to Art Deco that is,
with Napier, (the airport and seaport town of Hawkes Bay)
boasting the largest collection of Art Deco buildings
in the Southern Hemisphere.

On February 3, 1931, most of Napier was levelled by an earthquake
with the centre of the town mostly destroyed by the quake.
(7.9 on the Richter scale)
The town was rebuilt in the Art Deco style popular at that time.

We will start our tour of Hawkes Bay in Napier
which is situated on the east coast
2/3rds down the North Island of New Zealand.
