first_imgNew York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineIn celebration of the much anticipated Steven Spielberg-directed film ‘The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn,’ Rocco Forte’s Hotel Amigo and Moulinsart are rolling out the red carpet for Belgium’s favorite comic book hero and his loyal sidekick Snowy with two new exciting Tintin experiences.Located in the historic heart of Brussels, and moments away from the giant Tintin mural in the Rue de L’Etuve and the Tintin Boutique near the Grand Place, Hotel Amigo is an ideal base for anyone wishing to set off on an adventure in the young reporter’s footsteps. While many of the adventures of Tintin and his faithful fox terrier see him traveling across the globe, the stories are always linked to his hometown of Brussels. Armed with a detailed Tintin map provided by the hotel, tracing his steps around the Belgian capital now requires none of the young adventurer’s detective skills.Hitting the Tintin trail, fans can walk through the Brussels’ park depicted in King Ottokar’s Sceptre, visit the concert hall that inspired the Hippodrome in The Seven Chrystal Balls and browse antiques at the daily flea market on the Place du Jeu de Ball – the setting for the film’s opening scene in which Belgium’s national hero buys his best friend Captain Haddock a model ship.No adventure would be complete without a visit to the Hergé Museum, located 30 minutes from Brussels’ city centre. With tickets included in both of Hotel Amigo’s Tintin experiences, guests can explore this astounding piece of architecture which contains more than 80 original print plates along with a plethora of documents and photographs, highlighting the work and life of the comic book mastermind.Upon returning to Hotel Amigo, intrepid explorers can relax with a Loch Lomond Whisky, the favorite tipple of Captain Haddock, in the bar or continue their Tintin-inspired trip in one of four uniquely designed rooms.One luxurious suite and three deluxe rooms have been cleverly redesigned to incorporate memorabilia relating to the boy reporter’s adventures including artwork donated by Moulinsart (the Hergé Foundation), original lithographs, figurines of Tintin and his friends, the famous canes and black bowler hats worn by the bumbling comic detectives Thomson & Thompson and statues of the mythical creatures that featured in the film, the rooms will delight Tintin fans at every turn.The Hergé Suite tells the story of Tintin and Brussels, with images depicting his adventures in local locations such as the flea market at the Place du Jeu de Balle, La Monnaie Theatre and the Royal Palace. The living room showcases a Tintin bust and the Fetiche Arumbaya figurine from ‘The Broken Ear’ comic book. Snowy can be found snoozing on the armchair, and there is a replica of the famous rocket from ‘Destination Moon’. An image of Nestor, the long-suffering butler at Captain Haddock’s Marlinspike home, sees him answering the room’s phone. Additionally, the suite has a chest filled with Tintin comic books, and a large book on the hero’s history.An Interconnecting room is decorated with images of the six key characters: Tintin, Snowy, Captain Haddock, Thomson & Thompson, Bianca Castafiore and Professor Calculus, awhile the bathroom features a figurine of the shark-like submarine from ‘Tintin and the Lake of the Sharks’.A further two interconnecting rooms are dedicated to Spielberg’s movie, ‘The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn.’ The film combines the stories of ‘The Crab with the Golden Claws’, ‘The Secret of the Unicorn’ and ‘Red Rackham’s Treasure.’ Tintin fans young and old will revel in the rooms, which are filled with reproductions from the three adventures, including a model of the Unicorn ship, a big wooden statue of the Arumbaya figure and black-and-white images of Tintin and Captain Haddock. A picture of Snowy answering the phone is complemented by a replica of the phone itself, and there is another chest full of Tintin comic books for fans to enjoy.www.roccofortehotels.comlast_img

first_imgThe decomposed body of an unidentified East Indian male was on Monday morning discovered in a trench at Patentia, West Bank Demerara (WBD), with a black plastic bag wrapped around his head.The body of the man in the trench at First Street, Patentia, West Bank DemeraraReports are that around 09:45h on the day in question, passersby noticed the man’s body in the trench and immediately raised an alarm.The man’s face was reportedly swollen, making it difficult for residents to identify him.D Division Commander, Senior Superintendent Linden Lord told Guyana Times that although investigations are underway, the police need the assistance of the public in identifying the man.“The police at the Wales and Leonora Police Stations would have received some information from an unknown caller saying that there was a body in a drain at First Street, Patentia. As a result, Police responded and saw this male lying face upwards in the drain with his head covered with a black plastic bag. The body was dressed in a short, three-quarter hard pants, without any top.He noted that the man’s chest area, which was exposed, had been covered with blisters and that this could mean that the body had been there for a while before the discovery was made.“At this time we cannot say if there was any foul play until the post-mortem on Wednesday which will advise us on the way forward. Now I am appealing to members, especially in the Patentia area, that if they have any information or any knowledge about the missing person they can come to the police at Leonora or go to La Grange or Wales [police stations]. The police would have that person escorted to the mortuary so that they could get a look at the body to see if the body concerns any one of them,” the Police Commander stated.last_img
