Bourdain then visits Cafe Baba. He says it is mint tea and smoke, like his dorm room back in 1972. He talks to a couple of locals about how Tangier is a bit different than the rest of Morocco. Foreigners like to go there. They then talk about Tangier changing over time due to new technology, such as a flat-screen TV being put in the Cafe Baba.

While sitting in Baba, Anthony said he was getting a contact high. He is ready for the Spanish tortilla guy to open shop next door cause he is getting hungry. Anthony then shows this guy making his Spanish tortilla, which is a kind of omelette.

The following CNN travel news video is from Anthony Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown.” It is from the edition where he took a trip to Libya. This video was added to the CNN website on May 10, 2013.

Apparently because of the current climate in Libya (a civil war and apprehension about the future), Bourdain noticed that virtually no one was visiting the ancient ruins of Libya when he went there. He was pretty much walking around alone. Anthony did run across a troop of Libyan Boy Scouts. Gadhafi was a Boy Scout at one time, and he allowed the group to remain independent from the government. They say this was rare under Gadhafi’s rule.

Bourdain used to be a Boy Scout, as well. So he goes to them and recites the Boy Scout pledge in English.

Another thing Anthony checked out was fresh goat cheese wrapped in palm leaves. He then said a little cheese and a little flat bread is the perfect breakfast to go in Morocco.
