Anthony Bourdain revisits Thailand


Anthony Bourdain revisited an area where he first started his food journalism with “No Reservations” back in 2009, Thailand.
   
   
The caption for the episode (link) is “shut up and eat”.  And he gets to make rice whiskey. 
   
As popular as this country used to be for some tourists, it’s never held a lot of sway with me.  It’s subject to floods, and has some pretty archaic laws affecting freedom of speech.  And it has a reputation for men that want underage, well, whatever. 
  
Nevertheless, Danny Boyle’s  film “The Beach” (2000) with Leonardo Di Caprio was pretty compelling.  Remember when he get to check his email at the end?
