He not only wanted to see how they lived, but how they shopped and what they eat. Bourdain’s travels were a life of experiences – often in locales out of the norm.
Frequently, then he told us in rather inelegant terms on how to get there, but you certainly found how why he found places and people enchanting and memorable.
As with all his books and shows, I find myself going back multiple times to review, reread and ponder again his adventures.
He focuses on the essentials – the trip, what to eat, where to stay, and sometimes what NOT to do/see/partake in.
Also there are many behind the scenes deeper stories about family and friends.
