July 7 - Travel Channel

Anthony Bourdain, or Tony, as I like to call him, even though I've never met him, has a show called No Reservations, or something like that.

Whatever it's called, he travels around the world and eats stuff and does other things. He's a chef, so his adventures surround food, but I'm told his show is much more (his show isn't on the Tee Vee here).

On July 7 his season premiere finds him in Laos.

He says that 'Laos, for most outsiders, is an empty page...'


Not for you.

You, dear readers, have either visited us when we were there or visited us through the magic of the internet (meaning this blog) when we were there.

Either way, here's a teaser (note: I'm not sure, but it seems the shaded view across the river at about 0:25 is either from, or just outside, the fabled Sunset Bar where we often drank beer):

Anthony Bourdain in Laos

Sanya, the hotelier in the video with Tony (as I like to call him) is the owner/operator of the Auberge in Phonsavan that I stayed at a few times for work and one time with Katherine and the new kid.

He's a good guy, and it's great to see him get some air time.

I LOVE Bourdain! He's just should read his books if you haven't already. I love his shows too...this teaser is very cool...would love to see the rest of the episode. Must make you guys miss Laos tons! And your buddy,"Tony," is so cute
