One of the reasons Durban is such a cool place to visit, besides the sea and sun, is the architecture. If you've been to Miami's South Beach, it may remind you somewhat of being there... although I've been to South Beach and Durban is much, much better (having said that, is a good Cuban restaurant in Durban?).
And the great thing about these photos, is that this is where my great aunt used to live! The mural is just beautiful - and perfect, considering the building is on the esplanade and opposite the harbour.
These pics are from the Shooting Gallery (except for the close-up of the mural, which is from here), and you can see more, get a tour and much more info on the Durban Art Deco Society's website.
