#Tirgearr One Night in Havana #Authortips #artdeco Do you love travel?

While writing One Night in Havana, I enjoyed researching the crumbling buildings there from Colonial to Art Deco. "Deco" is a style of visual arts, architecture and design that first appeared in France just before the first World War. Art Deco influenced the design of buildings, furniture, jewelry, fashion, cars, movie theatres, trains, ocean liners, and everyday objects such as radios and vacuum cleaners. During its heyday in Cuba before the revolution, Art Deco represented luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress. The wealthy people who supported it were thrown out or executed.  Art Deco is one of the first truly international styles, and there are many beautiful examples in Havana, Cuba. Persons who loved this style brought it with them when they left, but there are Art Deco walking tours in Havana.
