Tintin in Cape Town

Despite his dubious credentials in Africa, Tintin is very much alive and well and rubbing shoulders with soccer players, colonial military askaris and pith-helmeted gents in the shops of Cape Town!


  1. I love Tintin, but like the works of Enid Blyton they were created in a different time and place. I notice the story came from the UK where there appears to be people who are constantly trying to either change history or apologize for it. 18 years ago my sister in law lived in China with her husband who was an engineer. She got a job teaching at Uni in Beijing and traveled on the bus to meet the ordinary people and regularly she had her red hair pulled and they would call her a foreign devil. Ah, but these same complainers would say that is their culture. I must add that once she got used to it she thought it was quite funny. Long may Tintin continue.

  2. I always loved the Tintin books growing up. I saw somewhere there is a Tintin movie coming at some stage.

  3. What's up to all, the contents existing at this site are really amazing for people experience, well, keep up the nice work fellows.

  4. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like
    you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is
    fantastic blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.
