Anthony Bourdain inspired by Libya

CNN’s Anthony Bourdain sat down with Wolf Blitzer in the Situation Room to discuss his upcoming episode of “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown” on Libya.

Bourdain recently traveled to the Libyan cities of Tripoli and Misrata to learn about the people, culture and food in the nation that’s still recovering after the country’s dictator Moammar Gadhafi was overthrown and killed in 2011.

Bourdain describes Libya as “inspiring” but "hearbreaking" describing many young, earnest people who expressed a desire to remake the country.

The full interview airs Friday at 6pm ET on CNN.

The episode of “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown” on Libya airs Sunday night at 9pm ET on CNN.

Bourdain: I'd love to go to North Korea

"I'll continue to travel the world on my stomach," Bordain says, but adds that he can now go to areas that "would have been impossible with another network."

On whether he will travel to North Korea, Bordain tells Blitzer he thinks it is inevitable and he'd love to go.
