A message from Tintin

I have been working on this project surrounding my Swiss ancestor's 19th century voyage to the Americas since 2007. Has it been 6 years already?

As a boy I always loved Tintin, and in particular I was drawn to "Le Temple du Soleil/The Sun Temple" edition which happens to be about Peru. I was reading it again for fun last night, and laughed out loud when I read one the panels. One that I never seem to notice before. Tintin is reading a news clipping of a Swiss expedition to the Andes. As I am finally getting close to calling the translation done, I am taking it as a sign of good things to come. Thanks for the synchronicity Tintin.
