Me and Wang Ye, at Mandy's for lunch.

My guest today is Wang Ye. Last time he was on the podcast, he was about to begin a long journey around Asia. Now, he's back in Beijing (at least he was; he just took off for Russia), and we decided to catch up on old times.

Wang Ye and I talked about his love of Starbucks coffee and co-working spaces, as well as his latest trip. He paid his respects to the Dear Leader in North Korea, decided to leave Istanbul after a terrorist bombing and hitched a ride on an Iranian bus to the border with Georgia, among other things. What's he up to next? Listen to the podcast to find out.

  • We talked a bit about Cappadocia, in Turkey. Here are some photos of this magical place.
  • We also talked about twice-cooked pork (hui guo rou, 回锅肉) , one of Wang Ye's favorite meals. Here's a recipe.
