    The episode for Monday March 23, 2009 at 9 E/P and 11 E/P on the Travel Channel:

    Schwingen in Switzerland

    Last week, the show followed Dhani preparing for his boxing match and experiencing some of the local culture like visiting a temple, enjoying some insect snacks, and a quick trip through the 'red-light' district.

    In Thailand, he gets into the cab and asks to see some ‘night life’ and he genuinely seems surprised when he winds up in the ‘red-light’ district. But, he rolls with the idea and strolls along the street. He hears some woman saying ‘she loves him.’ and he walks over and asks ‘how she can love him when she doesn’t even know him’. He is then grabbed by 2 women and they try to escort him away and he has to break free and tells them he is in training.

    In Switzerland, Dhani was preparing to Schwingen which is a form of wrestling. He really tries to learn the local sports and you can tell he is most disappointed when he does not do as well as he’d hoped. You can see and hear the respect the people working with him each week have for his effort, ability, and attitude. I think he was robbed on one match, but, he was able to advance to the next round regardless where he was ultimately beaten by a competitor with much more experience. He has some fun with local culture: shopping for clothes, snow boarding, swimming in the river, and my favorite was his cow milking adventure where he uttered the line of the show: “I’m not used to working with nipples this big.” Classic.

    It really has been a fun show. Dhani has great energy and it comes through during what seems to be a mostly spontaneous journey. I am looking forward to his trip to England next week.
