This pleasant morning was the occasion to talk about the beautiful friendship between Hergé and Tchang. Tchang, the Chinese artist and sculptor who inspired the author for the eponymous character in The Blue Lotus. Indeed, to underline the importance of this encounter, Hergé creates in this album a new character to which he gives the name of his friend. Which he had never done before and will never do again.
