On the forthcoming episode of Parts Unknown, Anthony Bourdain travels to Buenos Aires, Argentina, where—from the looks of a new preview from CNN—the globetrotting chef will enjoy some much needed rest and relaxation.
Kicking back in a lawn chair, sipping on a nice, cold drink, Tony joins a few locals as they watch airplanes take off from a nearby landing strip—apparently a popular pastime in the country’s most populous city.
“Buenos Aires, capital of Argentina. Second largest city in South America,” Bourdain says in the clip. “It’s got a quirky, unique character all its own. It looks like no other place, and it feels unlike any other.”
“I’m glad I came in the summer, when it’s quiet,” he adds. "It's got sort of a mournful, sad, sweet quality that I like.”
As Eater notes, a somber air will likely hover over the episode’s premiere on Sunday. The installment was initially set to air during Season 7 of Parts Unknown earlier this year, but was postponed due to the mass shooting at Orlando's Pulse nightclub, a massacre that left 49 people dead.
Still, fans have been anxiously awaiting the release of the episode, and will the show feature a guest appearance from Argentine celebrity chef Francis Mallmann, as well as lots and lots of cooked meats. Bourdain traveled to Argentina for his non-defunct Travel Channel series, “No Reservations,” but has seemed eager to return to the country.
Following Tony’s trip to Buenos Aires, only two destinations will remain in Season 8: Brazil and Rome.
