"Until I see Christiane and Wolf doing bong rips in the Situation Room, I will of course abide by these rules." - @Bourdain. Quite the quote!
“Network standards and practices prohibit me from even tasting this delicious and reportedly mind-altering treat, I’m guessing. So until I see Christiane and Wolf doing bong rips in the Situation Room, I will of course abide by these rules. Because that’s the kind of guy I am.” –Anthony Bourdain
Now Bourdain is at Cafe Baba - a famous restaurant. And first question? "So, how stoned are people here?"
“Tangier is one of the few places left in the world where, so long as you don’t proceed to robbery, violence, or some form of crude, antisocial behavior, you can do exactly what you want.” -- William S. Burroughs
From Segment producer Erik Osterholm: "I was in the center of the Kasbah trying to find a good place for Mo to shoot a wide shot. The two locations we had lined up fell through and I ended up running through the alley ways trying to find a replacement. I eventually asked a local guy on the street where I could see the whole city from up high. I grabbed Mo and we ducked through a small hole in the kasbah wall, climbed up some crumbling ruins, jumped a couple gaps in a broken stairwell and there we were...with an incredible vista of the city at our fingertips. Moral of the story.... it never hurts to ask the local guy on the corner."
From their site: "In 1989 in Tangier, Bachir Attar and the Master Musicians of Jajouka recorded with Mick Jagger, Ron Wood and Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones on the song “Continental Drift” for the Stone’s albumSteel Wheels. Cherie Nutting secured the Palais Ben Abbou in Tangier’s Kasbah, where the 1989 recording event was held, an event well documented by BBC Television and also featured in Pal Bowles’ Days: A Tangier Journal. Mick Jagger has described the Master Musicians of Jajouka led by Bachir Attar as “one of the most musically inspiring groups still left on the planet.”
