Mikey!!!!!--Anthony Bourdain by peripatetically on 17 July 2008 11:14pm
 
Gosh I love this guy. But, Mike!!!!!!! he did a really good show on Uzbekistan on the Travel Channel today. Try to catch it if you have a chance. It was hilarious , though most of his stuff is peppered with humor. He's so surly and articulate and yet educational and interesting. I could watch him all day long.

There are two absolutely great shows Bourdain did.

One was going along both sides of the Tex-Mex border, sampling the food, talking to the cooks and illuminating the "immigration problem" incredibly better than any political pundit has ever done.

The second was going to Lebanon two days before the war with Israel broke out. The crew was evacuated by a very scary hired mercenary to (and marooned in) a posh "safe" hotel . They could sit by the pool and watch the bombing. Bourdain took the absurdity of the situation and ran with it.

Oh yes, Geraldine, I came in on the end of the one in Lebanon. It'll air again some day, I trust. Hmmmm, I wonder if he has any DVD's available?

I've seen most of the Anthony Bourdain's. He is very funny. Surly?;-)
I like the sidekick he meets in Uzbekistan who goes other places with him.
