Watched this again while in Portland...with my DIL. She traveled to India and was in Bombay and Calcutta for months at a time on business. She stopped going a year ago. Anyway...she thought he represented the people, the food, and the culture very well. She said she was glad that he mentioned how repelled you can be by it...and love the people. She said..multiply that feeling 100 times...and that is India. She said it is so stinky and dirty..but she fell in love with the people and the food. She did say that he tried some food that she wouldn't have tried...saying that Americans often get sick on Indian food..and Indians get sick on American food. Tony has an iron stomach I guess. Anyway..it was fun to watch it with her. I look forward to his new season in Jan.
