CNN’s Brooke Baldwin talks with Anthony Bourdain about his new show “Anthony Bourdain, Parts Unknown,” in which he travels to exotic destinations. The show premieres Sunday, April 14 at 9pm ET.
Really? He says Iran is a young country? I would definitely recommend him to review history before even talking about Iran!!!!
@Mehrnoosh, as a republic is it not a young country?
I think he was talking about the age of the people, in which case, he is correct. It does have a young demographic.
yes!! Please do go to Iran! That would be EPIC. No other Americans come to mind that have gone there to discover the local culture and food. Persian food is honestly amazing! If Mr. Bourdain would like some well rounded hosts while he is there, I have about 50 cousins that would go out of their way to show him around.
Tony, please go to Iran. Dozens of reporters and scholars have already visited Iran over the past several years. You will enjoy the hospitality of a great nation.
According to his Instagram page he was recently in Iran. I can't wait for the episode
Mehrnoosh! Young country means that the people are mostly at the age of 20-40 and it's true, over 60 per cent of Iranians are at this age range.
We were just visiting family in Tehran, Iran. It was my first time there. I loved the people and the food and the country has such a beautiful old culture. I suggest you go and see for yourself.
My husband went there this past April-second time since 1977-he was impressed with the people and the development. I hope to go to visit his relatives next summer. Many do not like the government and make fun of it privately-they party more than Americans behind closed doors.
The show on Iran was eye-opening. I thought Tehran would be nothing but chopping the heads off infidels, grinding the bones of Jews into bread, blowing yourself up. It was nothing like that. The Iranians are very progressive. For example, women are allowed to show their faces while wearing their head-to-toe burkas. Women are allowed to go out in public without a male relative without having to worry about being gang raped like in other more strict muslim countries. Women are also allowed to drive, but they can't watch soccer. But who gives a crap? Soccer sucks anyway. Traditional muslim garb is not required for men, you know, head towel, man shirt, and suicide vest. And the Iranians didn't kill the people Bourdain spoke with, just arrested and tortured them for a while. Ah, Tehran, a pearl in the muslim world.
