That was fought a safety thing that we had to what it was incredible and then when we got the Elven dagoes is getting a gift. You know onset. Someone says okay. This is the plus the elven daggers.

"I've never like a red during coaches cover to it cover but it was a long long time ago telling you all the movie of Dorian Gray was just not good. Yeah that was that was when I was going took Zimmer will the time just watching I mean could it be good anyway. I feel like we are straying with. Just run out of things to say about Analia. Yes Aena Asari India. Yeah We see the the Russian pilots doesn't have that problem because the Russian N. which looks like an H. each capital H. is obviously symmetrical so symmetrical soon more symmetry in lettuce yes slow flu on Capitol because also a couple of ages my research did include looking up the film on Nice the Russian film film sites Keno which means film search so the although Russian connection with this film. We're watching is that. The main actor actress lead Sasha loose and she is actually Russian Valerian as one of like the youthful ethereal alien creatures wood piles of the beginning but obviously issues in so much makeup slash. CGI No way you would recognize other than you know very skinny fair enough. So yes I'm I am. I think we're out of things to say about film we haven't seen yet we are. We GonNa see the film but what do we say at this point in the podcast. I actually almost. Ah That's good the as I was going to join the yes. Ducks slush Welsh. Oh doc slash Welsh as accidents. I mean they've lived in Holland. Sorry true neither Lund's hold this. Well well I mean I did live in Holland. Bet Yes right right. Yes I during the rookie thing using Holland for the whole day the Netherlands because I know it is strictly speaking not correct yep of the. BBC says it's okay. Football team discovered the day. Okay talking about the football team. Gotcha by isn't one of the The CHOMP system up so that was anglicized pronunciation yes better than yeah so yeah so yes in that context. Apparently it's allowed. We're learning so much sing so much. The yes so three. Do One really turn gardens and today and where back Lynn. And I have just watched the film honor enough. I'm getting the pronunciation a bit closer to the authentic Russian. This time I think so before we tell you what we thought of the film ELM. We're just going to have a quick summary from Lynn. So if you haven't watched it yet S- than this is when will have spoilers and if something that bothers you yes polls the podcast watch the film and then you can proceed on spoiled so with that out the way. I'm yeah they may be few spoilers down. The advantageous is because it was a little bit incoherent and annoyed. Sure I knew exactly what was going on but we have to go. I would you so it. It is. Nineteen isn't nineteen ninety ninety five because my timeline is confused. Anyway I think it might be nineteen ninety there in Moscow and then a lot of American agents get chased by D. and they all end again heads chopped off and sent to the CIA to be fair. We only see one decapitated -tated head in the box but it does. Yeah it just start out quite like ideas wise graphic because you just see the face aced through some like plastic. It's not like a gory like dripping heads. But it's just like a face staring out the box which you know doesn't have room for the rest of a person awesome. So it's yeah it's more like that's a horrible idea rather than you see huge amounts of goal exactly this kind of at a day. It's kind of setting up with a level of continue drama and they ever even come back to head. Bits are getting added myself that was Unintentional Pun. I Apologize AH UNINTENTIONAL OVER MY head way okay. Well continue with this summary. Summary Chop Chop Them Ray. I'm trying to remember the order of exactly what happens but then there is a French fashion guy and a market yes. uh-huh okay Moscow and there was beautiful while those dolls straker is not not the words. It's Mad Yoshiko. Thank you so slightly. Early Patronize Punch. Nice and Russian. So here she is selling these in marquette extensively. Yes as we've the later we never see actually selling but this French fashion model scout comes up to arms all beautiful. That wasn't even French. That was just terrible accent. Generic Foreign Jin never know cups. The West protectionist for this. They will sound the same do they. I'm but this bill and the Internet so anyway so she ends up in Paris. Having taken up. This scouts offer Banshee Museum. That is as you imagine the not quite the amazing experience that the scout promised. She's in the Shatt at flat. Everyone is everywhere on the floor and a bedroom and it should spend mass anyway skit for three months three months she is a fancy John. C Swanky D. and that's an older so middle-aged man he comes up to her and they stopped fled Tang and then they'd sites data and then we move forward a bit more if I'm going to say three months iconic whether it was but she thought that makes sense I think right actually. Yeah and she's talking to him and she's like oh I didn't I think about you what you do is like oh I smuggled arms so I'm just going to the bathroom I should do. And then it comes out eventually seven and it turns out that she was a spy Duh. FIS nobody would have guessed this Fraum Tom Raila or the you know promotional picture. That's the way it was a crazy. Twist it no because he's coming anyway. Flashback flashback to like five years and she is well looking same age I guess because they sometime but she's might be younger. It's one thousand nine hundred five and she's living in and a crummy flat in Moscow with abusive boyfriends and they go out and trump Golden ATM. Apparently it's the first ATM in Russia. Supposedly supposedly then she they get chased by police. She gets the flatten as mysterious guy. That is like come work for the KGB. Well I guess we'll kill you then I will. We'll she she. She says something like either. I accept your offer ofo or you're going to murder me right. And he's like Yup pretty much. I do a small one. And she's like raw. Yes then she useless slits arrest at his very. It's kind of shocking actually Yeah it's not graphic. There isn't many things in this film as particularly shocking. If when it Kinda wants to be more shock as actually quite shook in graphic and the camera lingers Bloods while she talks this guy anyway. He's it's like Don't waste your life because you could do great things you country whatever we need people like you so she is Vice Suede. It's so then she gets trains and by the KGB at her boss. Helen Mirren Today. Croissants realize that was Helen Daring but it was helen. Mirren is for skept Clova. I'm then this continues. In the meantime I expect until we got to the point where we see the plug as the Russian doll fella in this market so she can be picked up by the fashion agency Guy who is not in on this. He has just been manipulated into finding he was planted. That she fought an associate's Paris and kill this arms dealer. So we have a backstory. Sorry doesn't undercurrent in all of this that she would like to outlive the catchy that she saw this as a temporary thing she was specifically promised it was she was. Yeah was it five years and then you'll free to go and we'll give you lots of money and you'll just have a nice rest of your life. It turns out there was in one way outlook. Heb Not as heavily employee data Doesn't WanNa ever explicitly say I I love the head of the KGB dose point a pistol like right. Her foreheads a point and south. How Much K.? Point point tycoon. We're we're we're not in a on the business of of subtle messages here so as we discovered from the heads in inboxes earlier implied ahead. Yeah it's not super super cells by foam. Say She ooh Yeah Gang this next In slightly the room off because you see undertaking mission and then. There's a flashback. They explains it. I'm just going to explain the whole thing in roughly chronological say she has gone to emission In a hotel which has pretend to be a prostitute or an ESCO whatever and then Kahlil Hill another sleazy arms deal I guess but it turns out that the CIA. No she's a spy and this is going down and then they're in the room with this Guy Kacha and say you should come with us much weddings. KGB Jeez take out the head of the KGB. Because he's Jack I'm paraphrasing. He is a Jack. We're seeing it in some of the scenes. Say Yeah. ARISTA get longer K.. Before the sky go prices but now cutting people's heads off in sending right sending them to us exactly so then it says she takes on this and it also turns out that the current deputy head of the KGB Helen Mirren also doesn't like the head of the KGB did you be and she's kind of okay with this so the climax almost climaxes. The film is Outta going into the heads. The site Office playing chess with him. I'm Dan winning. And then she's trying to get the building. While she gets chased facebook rushing soldiers that will govern but it turns out. There's no easy way scout the CIA Utha and then kind of forgot what happens what happens then. Well how does the film. Oh she goes back to back to Paris. Yes and she's supposed to be meeting up with breath I'm been upon the park of course the KGB not pleased with the fact that she's put a bullet in the head head of the now former head of the KGB and so there's kind of a standoff in the the park tasks right she walks she walks off. I can't remember what she walks. Off with. I've forgotten the name of the maim Syria do but anyway she goes away and then Auger her immediate line manager puts several bullets. And we assume that's you know good night for her but it turns out on his Dunton. at turns out that she can go and have a nice kind of life. Sort of yes so it looks alright. Man's woman's well etc.. The things that we haven't mentioned is the there's tensions park because she's meant to be meeting to people Bocskai played by Sunday. Muffing pink and the other is her. KGB CO look Who she is hot a relationships at tests yet why this this this was the chap who recruited her in her scummy evil abusive boyfriends flat? To begin with who made the the promise of Oh. It's five years annual freeze bird so he lied to despite the evidence sexual tension between them I talking of I was GonNa say sex attention but it's not too much tension sexually..

"I speak different languages different places but I find just making the effort of learning a few words it it makes. You appear to the people you're talking to is a person who cares his interested in culture. I have just give you a quick example when I've metric to be the first time arrived in Libya. This is not one of these accidental. Caffeine everything you ride people have the five day beard and looked at the terrorists from central casting and you would with Salaam Aleikum. Universities never happened to me in the Islamic world. You say peace upon you the no and says peace upon you putzing on very good footing so one thing is greedy to saying thank you and also one thing that's been my trademark is. I love your little intimate expressions. That show the you know like this is. I said that those China's expressions even I mean I actually speak Chinese legitimately but like an Arabic. I don't really speak. I knew I can have a short conversation but I sort of Murray and expressions that make you. His Guy respects her culture. He knows what's going on. I could give a couple examples. One thing is very well known as a child. You got future good stacey now in shallow winning at their another one less well-known it is an humble. Something could happen. You say an humble by the grace of God and a little more advanced something. You hear all the time if you don't speak Arabic what some young guys in well out here every every sense it means I swear to God so if you say like this is you. You're in a restaurant you say. This is the best homicide ninety one another great expression that works in the Arabic world and also most places and noted for time. Libya is expulsion Wafa Wafa. Have you heard that expression before? I did not know that in Arabic Y Y means one. One Watt listen means explosive. Messed up if you can say what the Wasser. His in giving the response no no. We'll finally get there. Is You know we're gonNA eventually get their slope? That same expression exists in all those countries I learned to say Wa wa the same thing as a poorly in. We've been to like they have like really. You're slow slow. Volleyball used expression all over Africa in in In a step by step in in Kinshasa Congo's Miami slow slow gentle gentle if you say that says. This guy is out imposing his westerns. Get things done right now. That he's going to flow he cool. We can hang with him. That's powerful especially the Miami money in learning the local language You'RE GONNA go far all add one and Thai okay so by so by so by means comfortable also by so by basically means tickies. I'll figure easy so by SA- by pair what next you've been to every country in the world. Is there another list? That's a great question. I finished Columbia Three or four months ago and it was a little sense of when I went a kilometer of years ago. You get to the top and you great the new all that that that tension you have going towards a goal for like running a marathon or anything that you've studied for them like the tension like this of sadness to the goal is not there and so- Apropos. Your question film Thanks to Harry. Mitzi these a shot off to him. Harry is the founder of nomad mania another systematic travel website Harrigan arguably one of those other guys you can say might be the most traveled person in the world. He's number one on that list with thanks to Harry last year. I met him. I'm a year or two ago and he was taking a trip to organize a trip to Mali and I wasn't on. Nomad media was on any of these sites. He said you know he's he's a missionary for a site he says. What are you saying? No my many. If we can do it together and molly I feel a little pressure and I never done before and I feel the media profile and it was fun. Took me like you know our dictate like every check? You make those burs memory and then you're GONNA go. You knew on the map was really. It's it's really addicted to do that. And then you had this map and then you look at the map thing you you think you're well traveled really not like you look at yourself. Russia this big and I've been to Wasco as computers very little bit to transcend variant so is in Siberia a big jump by train to Moscow. One little speak and I was thinking like last year on preparations who go into Iraq and Saudi. I certainly say Arabic and I can read stuff in the basic stuff I took pre seriously. It was my second stab at it since working. Libya and I really enjoyed it going to Russia's Russians even easier. I mean it's less difficult at least to be able to read the script and dirt grammar and said Russia. That's a new frontier. All this big this big university. I studied Russia relation concentration. So the Union is your. I studied John from history economics political science of that whole area and I went back again. Just this last month. These memories came back and things I studied and I want to go deeper into Russian. I'm going to go deeper into countries that have have a lot of depth like India example. Okay so now you're saying deeper dive into Russia. So is it simply just getting to know Russia better or does your mind work in such as the way that you look at the nomad media map and you say okay? I need to systematically visit each one of the regions as shown by nomad Menia. Or I just simply WanNa get to Russia better. What's the next bucket list? That's a good question. There's that I think there's something more more more masculine thing. We collect baseball cards. We collect your comic books isolated. I was obsessed with the whole set by looking at least for the time being started filling out that map. But it's it's one thing I learned when talking to Harry's is you know the good the systematic travel focus of of going deeper dive in a country. It gives it a good excuse to go to Piss. You normally wouldn't have gone. But that also wetted with learning Russian means is all good travelers being on the road and Russia going from unknown. `Oblast unknown seamless in speaking Russian. The whole time visit my where I am and might as well go to to Newark places. Ten Hunter show now. Nice Nice to meet you pleasure. Okay and complete nap pair. I WanNa thank you so much for joining me. Today it was truly awesome to sit down and learn more about you so thanks for taking your time. I WanNa take a moment to thank you as I said before. I got obsessed with Chinese. Listen Out of China's podcast and listen to podcast. In general I sorta listen to your podcast and the podcast actually was a very positive thing for me. I think most people have a certain way they they travel and they serve. Big Is the right way and I think travel should be an exercise. In general in empathy people from different cultures perspective attitude mentality but listening to other. Travelers story is a wellspring of empathy for people doing things in different way and I think most people most I admit most most most trouser admit that we have a certain way of looking at things. We tend to value it better than those folks travel that way but listen to your podcast with the deep indepth interview. I think it's really made me a better person. How I see. Other trailers develop more empathy for other people travel. I think empathy is is is the superpower for for travel in for relationship with their fellow man. So thank you rik. That's a great way to end in pair before we do our final sign off. Is there any way people can stay in touch with you or follow your travels besides looking at your map on nomad media? I'm very active on on social. Actually haven't really posted anything of his. But I can be found on on on on on facebook. My name is pair. Besson's you'll see all the show notes and everything. I'm.

"It's three hours to walk around the country but it would be like places like when my trip through through box car chrome highway. That's where I felt like it was just in a in a in a place so far removed from the world. I came down from from China. You're traveling by land. On the Karakoram highway been buried by an avalanche You had to get on to vote for hour and a half get to the avalanche. Climb over the ledge travel in local transportation to we twelve days to pass Pakistan I think I talked to about a train ticket. Once I talked to One woman. Women are invisible. Everybody's in our community gotta show welcome us as well. You feel like you're you really have no contact with a Western worth. What makes it special just? This one thing is to go to new APP lesson place to his various people another things go to places that heads full of people like is two hundred million people and be absent surrounded by people dressed in a different way. Bobby's different beliefs and you stick out so much and I most places stick maybe in Sweden. I'd go undercover Sweden or Denmark. I'm six four Amazon when I when I have hair I I stick out very much there. I could be a welcome I into welcome or could be a target so when we're looking at your question that you completed a visiting every country in the world what was one of the more challenging visas but there are a couple of these. I've had took awhile to get like irretrievable. You retrieve was I've heard funny reading the Password. Somehow I'd friends or going on a on a on a group tour When Canadian American they applied from their countries. I went to the embassy in London in London and I said is accurate. Apply here city. Sure just just call and follow up so I called. They say they've submitted is moderate. The local incumbent agency has never December come. I'm calling every few days for weeks and weeks. The guys hang on over resented for some reason L. of jerking me around your wet me. They have people at the immigration as Marlins he hasn't arrived on no proof. I mean it's easy to say. Don't we can process you. But for some reason this whole dance to like two months and a port the mission. So then how did he eventually get it eventually like a year year or so later on my found someone to to give visa on arrival? And it worked very smoothly. And who is that? It was it was Kasai. Been honey. And he's an individual who works with the airlines. They're like supplying like foreign foreign experts. Who Need to come and fix planes so all the time. He has a process therapies. Bring them in to as we use well-connected in fact he's the my last night there had dinner with him. He'd gone to school with the current president. Afford icke same descend generation very cool rubbing shoulders. Vip's was at least. I WANNA go back to Libya because Libya I mean as you said closed off from the world for so many years Now it's just a mess under civil war To country so many people want to visit you working with In the tourism industry. Were you working with the Ministry of towards them or a local Torkham to operator? Okay and were you living in Tripoli of simply Milan important groups had played out? Okay and will you do marketing sales? I was the interface between the operator and all of the groups overcoming so so I was that obviously I was more responsive than the competition. So I'm guessing pretty good too of course partners from the. Us awesome so you were working with them three years or how a couple years okay. A couple of years so How many times are you able to go down? And visit or total amount of time in country said when like five or six times great. And you know we all know Tripoli. We know the Sahara. What share with me. A top highlight of Libya. Would I need to say one? Which is a little bit farther away. Most who in Ninety Square to Tripoli in the Go-to left US Magda love the Roman relent or subrata. There's episcopa- dummies which is let which is Sort of South West in the direction of Timbuktu okay. That was a caravan route. Yeah it's right nestled there on the Tunisian Algerian border it would is that into old old sort of caravan town. I'm in the middle or on the side of the desert and it's constructed as mazing way where you're basically out of the the son. You're these big big chimneys where the Lichen come in. But that but they he doesn't you live almost underground city sort of blocked away from from okay since interested in. Libya. I haven't been. Give me one other policing need to visit eastern Libya. You have also the case. Is it an Ikea? We have the Greek ruins. You have these ruins. You have the temple of Zeus which is as big as the Parthenon in Athens not as well preserved. We had that big breakers for close to two degrees and that's also called the that. The the greenhills actually pretty green. Lush up in up in the hills there and you have a few quick ruin sites awesome so that what's my whistle even a bit more so hopefully things will settle down for the people and give me an opportunity to visit and go beyond AAA. This debate never ends pair For those of you are in the facebook group. Every passport stamp every fifth post is debating what counts as a visit. What your rule. When you're visiting a country well personnel like to go to country and see what is important to see I've tried to like even. In the smallest countries San Marino lethal sign every one of these twenty four hours and even Africa the smallest countries of these two or three days. And I've tried immediately. We all try to have a rule that we try to apply until we can't and I broke my rule. Actually I'm I've never really been active online but six months ago. I join every passports. Dan and great news came all in one week about the Saudi E Visa Shattuck Visa and Yemen be accessible from Salawah. So I did the day trip across and broke my rule but it does have a place where Yemen is one the countries that would most like to go back to that whole region. Ireland's but the but the main. I broke the rule because I didn't want to visit all the countries except Yemen in having hanging and only do like a short visit the end just to finish so I ended up doing it last year. in in November and I finished up on easy country which is Columbia. And did you travel by yourself when you did the day trip from Salau Actually the every password sent community is really quite good on helping each other and there was a couple of recommendations on fixtures as I two of them. I contacted when you can't do that. You know it's it's a little dicey now and they're one is more wheeler-dealer no I'm probably relatives at the border across him. And I got across that way so speaking of that in assessing risk so if you speak to two local you many guys fixture guides and one tells you it's not safe. Why wasn't that enough for you to say? Oh I'm talking to local. Who makes his money off bringing people into Yemen and he says? Don't go well actually. It wasn't the first one with an a safety. Issue was more between a becker. The border okay says I was in fact that little corner of Yemen is sort of a peaceful around the way location. So it's it's pretty safe. I mean it was a very funny village means just to do a day trip and come back and I know people who've been Yemen years pass they said is absolute highlight of that region excellent. What so what? What's your take. I mean there's been a rash of fastest and youngest travelers. Who are going. After Guinness World Records A number of them are doing what say cheats or hacked. I E counting an airport is a visit walking into Parmesan J. Village over the north and South Korean. Dmz and counting walking through the Blue quonset hut as visiting North Korea.

Well the fact is you ever says already been claimed. Some resort have been the first of all the countries. These other things about being the the fast is being the youngest. I mean.

"Yeah exactly I don't think anybody thinks China. I mean I'm sure the first image is the Great Paul China or the glitzy neon filled streets a Shanghai. Most people are not aware of and do not know The western part of China and how different it is pair. You are in the wheat individual you are one of approximately give or take two hundred individuals who've been to every country in the world one hundred ninety three sovereign. Unh We've heard a ton about your background air travels what was the day we decided. Seeing a lot of countries is not enough. I need to see them all. How did you arrive to that decision? I think gradually got think I was living in South America Europe Asia. And maybe the moment of the piff needed was possible was that I took a trip to North Korea with quarrier tours which is a group that takes a lot of forests to to North Korea. And I haven't been to Central Asia and I hadn't gone into administration and I had experienced one good time with a guide driver myself and going individual trial with guide and the driver and don't necessarily click with them. They're not responsive refund experience. If you like you're being you're the big one. The big hunter with his entourage and I knew the cordial tours organized trip to Stan said. If they've got two minutes Koryo tours they probably go to North Korea to. This is a pretty interesting group in how right. I was probably six seven. People triple more trouble than I was and I was. I was blown away. I thought it was well traveled. You sit down with the groove over lunch or dinner and like there's a table and they've all been to Wanda and hardy scratches service of Africa. And I by that time I've been to maybe Ninety Ninety five countries as it was all very possible. There's one the guy had been to all countries but to and through three before missing before we went to medicine and a few other one hundred sixty I said wow and I was inspired. I mean when you when you meet other real travelers. You don't want to. Some people used to tell your stories you meet them. You don't want anything you just want to listen to their stories and is there any names you can share I? E these are people known within the extreme travel community. There was one guy actually. He's very well known in Argentina. He sort of a a leftist photographer. Guy Who spent nine months in in Africa slow and low to the ground is it was Pablo Secrets. Moldy and there was one guy I think is Abe is like David and he was. He was in the Canadian Foreign Service and he was stationed on bases in world strategically Got Another world. But those those who are not ones are active in the community. Now those two really when they struck me. Hello Pablo David. If you're listening show is what year was that. That was in two thousand and thirteen. Okay two thousand and thirteen. The lightbulb moment goes on you meet these extremely well. Travelled individuals do you start now investigating and making lists than looking at your maps. In addition to searching out in finding a other one ninety three years or reading other travel blogs. What's what's the process there you know I was. I was pretty isolated from from travelers. I was in China for a while until two thousand thirteen. There was a period like four years on and went to one new country because all my free time which is travelling in China. I want I got in my mind. You know I think since I was a kid you clicked like sports cards or comic which when complete sets and my set was the provinces in China and so one by one I did and finally I finished the provinces in China I started to visit countries like Bangladesh and east he more to the East Asia Southeast Asia finished than South Asia and then move towards Central Asia. Too that's when I started to to Exhaustive possibilities in Asia and I started moving bitter towards Africa So a pair when you're collecting these countries when you're visiting and traveling in them what's your inspiration is checking UNESCO world heritage is is at Wildlife for nature is a cities as a museum. What what would you checking off the box? When you're visiting you know as I was at a fairly primitive and travels has pretty simple in how tribal I get lonely planet. See what you know. The things that are most visited and go do them. I think I probably have a An outsized interest in history. Like I wonder Stan what is behind the country. We have today. Why is it country different than its neighbour and so I really take a lot of interest like national? And of course he. I I see all the main sites of the whatever's the temple or the Moscow were church and if there's h really wanna see I can do of his music festival but really point in history and culture understand. Why is it country unique? Is there a country that stands out for your interest in that country in terms of history like countries historical past? You find extremely interesting compelling actually. I'm I've when I really started going deep in Africa. I sorta read a lot of books on African History. And the interesting thing is you're fifty four countries and there's a clinical period those opposed colonial period and fifty four chapters of different different variations. And I find that absolutely fascinating how to see how varied by British presence French Presence and then post liberation so independence. What happened to them? The choice of leaders of the lack of choice leaders is that a family business passed onto father and son and I get really I sort of put on my historians had or in terms of interest in history especially when I was travelling to Africa. Let's like fifty four different laboratory experiments when they made that transition and going back in time to any time period to any country or region. Where would you choose if you had that time machine to a live in or visit to to visit? I've been been enchanted by way of trial. I think the first overheard description that web travel. Is You actually use the word the term? Let me borrow your your term that you've used. The term is slow in low. I hadn't heard that before. I think that that state's best the slow on low guy par excellence. Is Marco Polo that idea of having the skills it also of languages and cultures to go across negotiate across difficult terrain to go to a far off land and actually which is exotic caress? Come from the. Us China Magin then and that would be this sort of the person or the time period. Quite interested in pair. Hiding you travel. Are you always solo or friends or what your what as of late? I've gone to places that most of used you travel by myself. I usually don't plan too far ahead. And therefore we can say lineup people to travel with. But it's all in the last couple years. I ran into some extreme travelers. In some cases. I've been had the chance to travel with him and I always think if you travel with the wrong person is better to try to stay home if you travel the right person. It's you double the pleasure and you you you you cut in half the hassle and you have great stories to share for the rest of Your Life. That is true. It's obvious you're stating it's the risk. If you end up with the bad apple you could ruin friendships by child with the wrong right with the wrong good friend. That's true pair hiding pack. Would you traveling with when you're hitting the road or is back in the day? I would pack for things just in case. I'd have my dancing shoes just in case because I don't really mind carried a big pack. You know the standard pack like twenty twenty five kilos space. Why Not Schlep it along and so by books along the way that humilate? I'd have you know. Four or five types of footwear and then over time the last like since two thousand thirteen fourteen now. I travel with one backpack which is back pay would not out of place on a college campus and I have a super easy packing strategy recently. More to warmer places. It's like one long pants. Shorts on tennis shoes flipflops four quick dry shirts once in a longer lungs put Dr One windbreaker and occasionally travelled from coal places to the southern Southern Hemisphere. Where I'm leave where I am. It's really cold outside. Maybe below zero. And that's all I have and my backpack is empty because it weren't all my clothes. Do you know twenty thirty pushups with backpack on and warm up and go out and handle transportation. Get to the airport. And then do the strip-tease basically take off all those. I have on input in my backpack in an office. I go Kay some good tips out there and one hundred ninety three. What's one of your favorite places you've ever? I know you asked a question all the time. It's funny that I haven't relieve thank. You didn't prepare but I didn't do my homework and this. Let me just preface by saying that one could ask a question a lot. I'm going to answer your question. But on the medieval preface to say that people asking the question. I said you know we if you ask her mother. Who is the favorite child? Especially you know that the hero mother of you. China's revolution or these societies have too many children. They're the map ten children and they had their love child a different way so I love certain countries. Further landscape certain countries for architecture certain countries for the people certain for the food in certain countries for the store. Moment that you're living in your shoes you're part of history like China can be so greedy and rough. But we whatever's in China for seven years. This is part of history. This is a period of transition so to answer your question transportation question. Obviously it's unfair to say. The country lived long time. Because you have these emotional connections to it but let me mention a few places that I find sort of little treasures and really pleasantly surprised me on one of those was late breaking a fossil people in British foucault or so amazingly smooth in warm wherever you arrived to come in the door arrive in the airports. Not even like it's good arrival. Everything is welcome. Welcome welcome one country where I really felt walk. I felt real connection. Maybe that's the reason I worked for Libyan tours of a couple of years. Libya Libya was closed off to American for for for twenty years. I just arrived in Italy from Brazil. I discovered you can go to Libya's American. I wrote ten tour operators. I said Oh you WANNA come here. You have to have a guide. You have a driver by the Wisconsin. Twenty dollars a day and I wrote Tan. One guy was a little more flexible and I wrote to my said if I translate your website from your English to my English you can work with me a little more flexible so he let me be a little more flexible and this guy made his whole family and I worked with tourism to Libya and I travel a lot has a very special connection for me and Libyans didn't really have tourism. You go you go to a buy something and they say. The price has say ten. You say five you go. Oh it's ten. Do not use to bargain to go to Egypt for him. Rock up use tossing Egypt or Libya was the land that time forgot They had oil money in their cut off from the world in the people this simplicity in this warmth away from the Capitalist Society of need to rush around and make money why. That's a place I think we'd all like to visit and possibly even living. Okay this is A quick grounds here. So with your previous statement favorite country landscape wise Jus- come up with one and bring it out a one one one lands almost made me. Cry Is arrive in the in the desert in Libya in the morning when the strikes a certain way you see these dunes which like twitter meters high and I almost cried. Mckay and favourite big city..

"Came through China and the China five years before and I asked me then would ever live in China. There is no way was even a distinct possibility not an whatsoever but golden China that time tourism finish up Libya. I need to look for the next big thing. And the Kirby what would it look like if I took a deeper trip in China? Okay and so when again? China troubling steady Chinese. Why traveled two months steady Chinese? I thought it was a good language student until I've said Chinese and I said Chinese is just too tough to study cash. I want to move to China so I moved to Beijing and I went to language school and I got series of jobs and Internet companies and I stayed thirty six one two years and I ended up seeing more than seven. Was that at level at any level For you meaning. I've heard you speak multiple languages to native speakers. Germany Portuguese Over the weekend when we met for the first time I mean not that I speak either language. It sounds like you're a native to me. So obviously you're you're you have a natural talent at some level for speaking these languages. So what was it a little punch in the mouth when you've got to China and I mean you weren't picking it up like you magically seem to pick up these other guidance based languages he'll come up and says a great word for men's I think we all sort of developing identity and reasoning for special and because I learned to for language I thought it was a language guy and that sort of worked in in in Europe. You also. I was living fooled because he spoke Spanish. Going to other Latin languages you get so much traction so quickly all of a sudden you're up and running and I started learning Chinese and it just it hardly sticks at for example if you have a word in English revolution a Spanish Sean. M- ITALIAN HEBREW PSALM Portuguese every show in French. And someone tells you that's the way it is. You're never gonNA forget your tire life. If someone tells you that in Chinese it's good me tell you that you know you merged forget forget maybe the ten th time you you get it right. Get the tones wrong and come up in punched in the mouth. It's just an assault on your ego and angry I just buckled down slide pushed and also I started studying. Chinese went up thirty eight. I think biologically were engineered to learn willing to three. So what's the processor utilizing that and is it? You said school so there's that me once a week but knowing you little idea I mean. I wouldn't be surprised if you told me that was school five days a week with a tutor on the side. So how does a pair start mastering in Mandarin assuming? How do you start mastering Mandarin when you're living in China while I was in class every day and then and then do homework on the side and then after the six months with Finnish still? You don't really feel them which Fox because if you learn a few learn a foreign language before you know in relative terms what is to be somewhat fluent because you have a parameter it was two first ladies awhile. I'm just doing okay. I'm proven every day but if you have a parameters will I've actually so far behind what imagine but later on a where really gotten habit of doing was listen to podcasts? Chinese there is. There's a there's a psycho Chinese pod they've got like my two thousand lessons okay and I would just like steady my own every day before before work. I do an hour of Chinese and then every waking moment that I'm not using my brain I'm walking somewhere. It's Chinese I'm brushing. My teeth is Chinese. I get so much in the habit of finding times of the day record poor in Chinese that when it stops it in Chinese I found podcasts. And that's one reason I found your podcast was I was going to say. I'm sure those podcasts. Were extremely destructive but nowhere is entertaining discounting country. You know what it's different different charm and a pair. What what's in? I from what I gather. You became a relatively. You're very proficient in Chinese. What's the reactions you get from the locals when you bust your Mandarin and more specifically not in the Shanghai or Beijing? You're in a smaller town. That doesn't get as many Gweilos and believe they're called. I mean in in Cantonese GWEILOS GHOST. Waco's so I mean do you have any. Is there any funny stories like you roll out of the bus station in a fourth Tier Town? Which is still two million China. Start busting out. Your Mandarin people are shocked. Surprised or they just hope the bus stations over to the left in Chinese. Will you get these different reactions? One reaction is they. Don't even think speaking Chinese because they can't imagine there's a common thing. This is argue. Sometimes people turn their head and they raise their hand like this and I am sorry. I don't understand what you're saying because they don't think you're understand and then they realize you're speaking Chinese and they look at you like this and there is a wide and it's I'm for sure to I have ever spoken to foreigner but like you said fourth year city in in China two million people even a second tier city in China with eight million people. Say You go to downtown walking street. That's big C for an hour. You don't see a single western face sometimes for entire hour. So why a couple of anecdotes there on one. When I'm in a in a train station in unwed province speaking Chinese people in Mine and a and a guy would be is. He comes from the countryside he sees me. Are you a foreigner Nisha Alabama? Are you a forty? Just want to confirm so we can go back to the village Said Act. You Talk to foreigner. I said want to tell you the truth. We actually said why grandma and why were means outside country person said you know when I leave my country and go to any of the two hundred countries in the world. I'm afford if you leave your country. You're a foreigner to another interesting anecdote. I'm traveling western China. I go into a train compartment and then a person's person Chinese in the person says what minority are you because in western China again? There's fifty six minorities in China but there's also a cosmic wego minority. Of course the Hon minority. You're ninety percent and he's like speak Chinese. He must be Chinese for different minority so invented as the fifty seventh minority. It's the foreign friend minority. That CHINESE IS GONE. Why Polio is at four four four hundred fifty seven minority? That's pretty awesome. Okay and same question. I give you for Brazil. Besides the known places beyond Shanghai Beijing and Union province. Where is somewhere? I need to go in China. I have a real affinity for western China Xinjiang region. Of course Tibet. If everybody's GonNa go to that. But she john in those those minority group brothers. Like we've your Kazaks Pajic kid gets okay and when you say the western part of China this is the area where Muslims are prevalent in. We have been in the news quite a bit. Unfortunately in the real negative way with Basically concentration camps in extreme surveillance. But what is attracting you to this? Non Hanish region of China. I'm really enchanted by the whole concept of the Silk Road this transition between Asia. In your and you go Western. China go do Romanucci or cheesy caller. Go DOWN TOWARDS THE CAR? Comb HIGHWAY CASH CAR. Kasha they call it in Chinese and that sort of the caravan route of going towards towards the West the whole story behind it fascinates me okay so I just spent a very short period of time and Ramji and Turpin interesting visit from me. You know this area better than me. What when I get to that region. What's a must see place or a must unique experience to partaken. I think for me because I was such a long time to eastern China. I was rather delighted by once I took through Central Asia on the way back in through has Exxon to the very very north tip to be top of Xinjiang up by the Russian border by Russia. Altai and you go there and you have you have you know. Greet greenhills you've got the Kazakhs Rushing rivers it. Just furry counterintuitive tweet expected to China..

"Hi, I'm Seth Abramovitch senior writer at the Hollywood reporter. And I'd like to welcome you to it happened in Hollywood. It's a new podcast. I'll be hosting with the help of my good friend. Chip pope. Hi there. That's me. I'm chip I'm a TV writer and a pop culture enthusiasts in each episode. We're going to be taking a journey backwards and time and revisiting some of the wildest chapters in Hollywood history iconic films zeitgeist TV shows infamous lawbreakers and just the random weirdness that color the place. We call LA La Land. Yes. And we think that you'll find in Hollywood the more things change the more. They stay the same. And that's what this show is about on each episode. We're going to be going to a key figure in whatever topic recovering and interviewing them. And then after the fact Seth, and I will comment on those prerecorded interviews, so let's get right to it. Welcome to the first episode of Hollywood. All right. Let's do some scene setting its December nineteen seventy three Richard Nixon one month before told a room full of reporters in Orlando, Florida. I am not a crook. Well, I'm not a crook. And in movie theaters. Cross the nation. Robert Redford, Paul Newman were playing crooks in a blockbuster hit called the sting. Then this thirty eight year old wonder canned Billy freed Ken comes along riding high. Having just won the Oscar for the French connection in seventy two. I love that. He's thirty eight year old wonderboy because the industry in nineteen seventy three's run by nine year olds he's young blood at thirty eight. He is he's whippersnapper and -ticipant for his chosen follow picture to French connection is at a fever pitch. His choice was the exercise. I now this was a big budget adaptation of smash hit novel about a little girl who gets possessed by the devil. The film was plagued by infighting delays. It went way over budget. He acted kind of crazy firing people left. And right people thought there was a curse on it yet. There was supposedly occurs. And there was all kinds of reports that this thing is going to be disaster. But when it finally came out, it became the all-time record breaking movie from Warner Brothers at the box office and went on to become one of the most admired and imitated horror films of all time. It's interesting that you should mention the sting because that was just like nostalgic entertainment that took place in the thirties. Whereas the exorcist was very edgy movie. Very hard are a hard arm and pretty much almost an ex. I mean, this is like a cold bucket. A holy water in the face of a pew Besson. Girl. I mean, even the Hollywood reporter this very publications seemed genuinely shocked by it in its review, they called it, quote, an abomination, and quote, and they call it the wretched excess of the year, but at the same time, they also suggested that it may be the most frightening movie ever made and forty five years later, it's still pretty much lays claim to that title of scariest movie ever made this week's special guest. We have the man responsible for making it. That's right director, William freakin. What throw the talk to this guy? He was great. He was absolutely wonderful. I didn't know what to expect. I thought he might be lawf- the wall get some of the films. He's made forget his age eighty two. I didn't know what we were going to get. But he was such a nice guy was just a thrill to sit at the feet of a master filmmaker.

"You podcast and the third installment of the, it's a mystery episode. Moving on to my final selection of the podcast, and that is called messenger of truth by Jacqueline win spear. It is a number four in the mazy Dobbs series. I have talked about maisy Dobbs before. In fact, maisy was in my very first episode when I was so nervous all my gosh. And so that was the very first episode, like I said, and it's actually recently been replayed a couple of weeks ago. So there's a couple of different places you can find it. If you are interested. Maisy is a private eye in the twenties and thirties, which is unusual because there weren't many if any private is who were women in that time period. She was a nurse in World War One, and that has a. Large effect on her life and her actions going forward. She's a fascinating character. I love her. I haven't gotten to read as much of the series as I've wanted to, you know, with everything else, but she remains on my list. And whenever I have a spare moment than I read the next one in the series. So I'm up to number four, which is called messenger of truth, and let me give you the description of that book. London, nineteen thirty one the night before an exhibition of his artwork opens at a famed Mayfair gallery. The controversial artist, Nick Besson hope falls to his death. The police rule it an accident, but Knicks twin sister Georgina a wartime journalist in an infamous figure in her own right isn't convinced when the authorities refuse to consider her theory that Nick was murdered, Georgina seeks out a fellow graduate from girton college maisy dubs psychologist and investigator for help. Nick was a veteran of World War One. And before long, the case leads maisy to the desolate beaches of Dungeness in Kent and into the sinister underbelly of the city's art world in messenger of truth. Maisy once again covers the perilous legacy of the great war in a society struggling to recollect itself. But to solve the mystery of Nick Steph, maisy will have to keep her head as the forces behind the artists fall out of the shadows to silence her. So it's a mystery. The death of Nick has been ruled an accident by the police, but his twin sister just has a feeling that that's not correct. So that's why she seeks out maisy is interesting for a lot of reasons. I mean, you know, being a woman in this time period in an atypical career being in a career at all, but also an atypical career. She is a single woman which was also, you know, a very atypical at the time. She is a psychologist and investigator. So she has a different way of approaching. A lot of it is intuition. She has kind of senses of things that help her to see the bigger picture that maybe other people might not see. But she also is very logical, very detail oriented at cetera. And so she takes on cases and investigates them in different ways than the police might investigate them not necessarily better or worse, just different. As the way she approaches things and the she's very today. She's so once she's got a case, she isn't going to give up until she figures out what is behind what is behind the case or behind the reason the person hired her for the case. So I love maisy as a character, but I also love the historical aspects of these books. There is a lot of of consequences from World War One in the books, and they're a lot of foreshadowing of World War Two right now. We're in nineteen thirty one. So you're in that in between periods still recovering from World War One. But Adolf Hitler is rising to power in Germany. And that is talked about in parts as people are paying attention to the news, etc..
