9 p.m. EST on the Travel Channel: Michael Palin's Himalaya.
I love this guy. I have a big-time older man crush on him. And I would travel with him anywhere. He's the kind of traveler I aspire to be. Palin is someone who gets into the cultures and the experiences - with decency and respect and humor. It's great stuff, people. If you're going to watch TV tonight, turn off the network re-runs and see something really cool.
Two episodes back-to-back.
See something pretty and cool and different.
Enjoy the charming traveler.
See the Himalayas without food poisoning or altitude sickness.
Can't beat that with a stick.
Micheal Palin is an absolute legend over here in the UK. Not sure if you know about Monty Python - a comedy group who have made a number of sketch movies, but he was a member of the team. But he doesn't half do a great travel show! he's been pole to pole, around the equater, and all over the place. His journeys through the Himalayas are amazing! i think my favourite part about it is the colours. they are just so beautiful. I hope you enjoyed the show, and that you continue to watch many more....they're amazing.
on a side note, i'm trying to finish Song of Susannah as fast as i can....I need me to finish The Dark Tower, as much as Roland does. I'm desperate to get to the end! i've been totally gripped since the first book!
I adore Michael Palin! And I was raised on Monty Python, which may account for some of my twisted sense of humor.
I think Palin's travel shows totally rock. I've loved them all. Can't wait for next week's installments.
And you will love The Dark Tower. I cried. Haven't cried over a book in a long time, but this one got me several times. Sigh.
