I think it was talking to all the refugees who've been living there for years. That filmmaker he was hanging with was pretty crazy, though.Did anyone watch the Hong Kong episode and did it feel kinda dark and depressing to you? Either that or I'm still clouded by his death.
One of my favorites was the West Virginia episode. It's pretty easy to categorize Dump voters as willfully ignorant hicks, but it was really good to get some background on the attitude there. My other top two were Palestine and Hanoi.
My favorite No Reservations episode was in Beirut when they got caught in the middle of the war with Israel and had to be evacuated by the marines. Also when he was hanging with these crazy Maori in New Zealand and ended up rolling a quad down a giant sand dune.
I've traveled a thousandth or less than what he did, and yet those are some of my best memories. Seems unbelievable to me that he could have enough mental issues to outweigh all the positives in his life and yet still be undiagnosed.
