Perhaps Calculus Affair and other later books were more accurate because by this time Hergé had become more meticulous in the way he produced his books? In earlier stories (where we see much more of Tintin in Belgium, or at least I think it is), Hergé didn't go to anything like as much trouble to ensure how accurate his drawings were. I think that you're right in what you say about not wanting to 'offend' non-Belgian readers though, Jyrki. It's probably a combination of these things.

Well the Calculus Affair is the best book in my opinion. I still love reading that story. It would make a wicked movie.

Interesting as this all is, can we at least head back towards the topic of the hotel in particular, rather than the book in general, or start a fresh topic for the new ground covered? It makes it all much neater!
