In prison, he meets a renowned Russian actor, an American architect, and a hardened Russian gangster.

Join Anthony as he experiences the rich cultures of the people he meets in his travels and samples their many gastronomic delights. Sweden: While sampling popular Swedish delicacies like lingonberry sorbet and lobster with butter and sugar, Anthony hopes to dispel the myth that all Sweden has to offer is tall blondes, Swedish meatballs and ABBA in this "land of contrasts". Puerto Rico: Anthony dines on roasted pig in Caicay, attends a posh party at a hacienda, searches for a chupacabra in the jungle, meets boxing champion Miguel Cotto and travels to Ponce to take in the Festival of the Virgin Mary.
