Anybody watch this last night?
Food star Anthony Bourdain tells of a ‘different Iran’ than expected
Not surprising, but also highly informative.
Beer drinking, pizza eating, American muscle car loving, family oriented people just trying to live their lives to the best of their abilities.
Also - NOT hating America, although not forgetting that America supported Iraq during the Iran-Iraq war which included Iraq using some pretty hideous weapons on the Iranians.
I especially liked the one scene where Anthony was having a HUGE formal lunch with a family and the father specifically stated "we are not the axis of evil".
So I'm wondering what your thoughts are regarding the show.Someone then found out about his producer’s birthday.“The entire restaurant sang “Happy Birthday” to him and presented him with a cake.”
Bourdain was in awe at the stark difference between the Iran he had been led to believe and the Iran where an entire restaurant sang “Happy Birthday” to stranger.
