South America

This immense continent is the one Tintinvisited most, not only in The Broken Ear, Land of Black Gold and Tintin and the Picaros, but also in Red Rackham's Treasure, where a large part of the story takes place in the Caribbeanislands. During the 1940-50's Hergé was in the grip of doubts about his profession and having a nervous breakdown. For a time he thought of moving to Argentina, which illustrates his fascination, and how strongly he felt, for this land and civilization.
