Die plek waar hulle is, is op deel van die hoofkampus van die Universiteit van Pretoria gebaseer (buite die Merensky 2-biblioteek, wat bestaan). Maar dit lyk nie heeltemaal so in die regte lewe nie. </disclaimer>

The place where they are is based loosely on a part of the main campus of the University of Pretoria (outside of the Merensky 2 library, which exists). But it doesn't look quite like this in real life. </disclaimer>


TRANSLATION:

PANEL 1
Jane: Good, so we're on campus ... and now, what now? / How do we get into the library?
Louwrens: I have a plan ... come along ...

PANEL 2
Louwrens: Afternoon ma'am, my cousin is in class and sent me to make photocopies ...
Librarian: That's fine, go on thru ...

PANEL 3
Jane: Yeah hey, and you've got such an innocent little face, too ...*
Louwrens: I'll take that as a compliment! Come on,** we'll go fetch our information ...


* This sentence isn't directly translatable. Literally it means "you have such an innocent little face in vain," but in English that would imply a failure to seem innocent; whereas in Afrikaans, it means that his face is innocent but his behavior is not.

** Yes, "komaan" is a perfectly good Afrikaans word. No, I'm serious, it's in the dictionary :)

if you want to see some weird or futuristic architecture you should look up las vegas... also there is a new book about cosmic communist constructions photographed... you might also want to look into the Archigram.
