In the second episode on Budapest, Pria explores the city, taking us on an hilarious ride in a Trabant; has an illuminating chat with Istvan Szabo, director of the acclaimed Mephisto; and discusses the intricacies of the Hungarian language.
Anh rents a motorcycle to explore central Vietnam and the Vietnamese fascination with Luck. Anh travels north to the capital of Hanoi, where he samples produce from the Old Quarter's 36 specialist streets then enjoys the old-world French influence at the historic Metropole Hotel. Next he visits the mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh. Known as Uncle Ho to millions of Vietnamese, he is regarded as the father of modern, independent Vietnam. The spectacular scenery of the Red River Delta around Nin Binh is the setting for a hands-versus-feet rowing race on the river. Anh goes hunting for snails, a local delicacy, then cooks them up in the traditional way. Anh ends his journey in a north-western mountain town of Sapa, where he helps out at a local school and finishes the evening at a raucous party with Hmong tribal ladies.
