12:02 am
spain, and one of the most beautiful. granada is tucked against the sierra nevada mountains of andalucia in southern spain. it's not like barcelona, it's not like san sebastian, it ain't madrid. any reasonable sentient person who looks at spain, comes to spain, eats in spain, drinks in spain, they're going to fall in love. otherwise, there's something deeply wrong with you. [ man chuckles ] >> anthony: spain's the sort of place that never really made any sense anyway, and in the very best possible way. [men chanting ] >> anthony: this is a country that gave us the spanish inquisition, also anarchy. this is where devout catholicism mixes with surrealism, modernist cuisine with traditional tapas. christianity and islam traded places, shared space. and the effects and influences of all those things are right here to see. you could almost look back
12:03 am
through time and through the mists of history, see the phoenicians marching up, cross the vega. or are those feral hippies? an influx of international hippies, many of whom appear to have set up squats in the caves up the mountain, have made things interesting. if they ask what we're doing, you should say we're staging a moon landing. wherever you are on the ideological spectrum, however, some things are constant it seems -- some stereotypical expectations. it's true, there are free tapas everywhere. yes, they do actually take siestas, which is a civilized damn thing to do, far as i can see. flamenco? yes, they do that also. but in granada, they do it old-school. and, oh, yeah, bullfighting. they do that here, too. but i digress. i'm here actually to answer a question. what happens if you go over to the other side? say you grew up in the states,
12:04 am
and, like a lot of us, wondered, fantasized about what it would be like living abroad in old europe, surrounded by crusader castles, delicious food, another language, another culture. what would that alternate life, that road not taken, be like? my longtime friend and cameraman from maine, zack zamboni, is finding out. so where are we going? >> zack: uh, right here, one of these tables, which maybe we want to do like this with. see? how often do you get to go out with somebody that can properly block the table? >> anthony: misery is what it is. >> zack: oh, boy. gracias. >> waiter: ah. >> anthony: ah, yes, of course. snails in an almond sauce, about as traditional and as delicious as it gets. that's a plateful of perfect happiness. >> zack: good tapa, huh? >> anthony: that's right, tapas come from here. and this is still one of the few places in spain where they're free. all you have to do is keep drinking. >> zack: you can sit here all day, just ordering a couple drinks and -- >> anthony: right, no rush.
12:05 am
i plan on spending some time here. red wine ordered, tripe's to follow. tender, spicy, delicious tripe. >> zack: sun, plaza, guts. pretty -- good. >> fuen: hello. hello. you're --, no? >> anthony: not too long ago, before zack basically defected to spain, he met fuen. the next thing you know, he's living here, part of an extended andalusian family, eating the ham, drinking the wine, living the life of the spanish dandy, in freaking granada, no less. classically, culturally speaking, do you want a sensitive, nice, caring, thoughtful guy? >> fuen: well, it depends on the woman first. but usually we look for this kind of person that we know he will protect us. >> anthony: from what? feral hippies? [zack laughs ] >> fuen: for example -- you know? or -- >> anthony: i would love to do the vows at your wedding. "do you, zack zamboni, swear to protect fuen sanchez from any
12:06 am
attacks by feral cave-dwelling hippies who might attempt to sell her jewelry or other things of little value?" [ zack laughs ] >> fuen: that's actually a very bold vow. >> anthony: i figure now that zack is marrying into a spanish family, i can piggy-back along for a bit, suck up a little of the magic, live a little bit of what has often been my dream, too. >> zack: but if we can get weird for a second here, man. >> anthony: uh-oh. >> fuen: oh, boy. >> zack: some places, do they have an energy, man, about them? >> anthony: what are you saying, man? >> zack: i, you know, i don't want to get into metaphysics or, uh -- some places we go -- >> anthony: you're going to be living up in a -- cave, you keep talking like this, huh? [ zack laughs ] >> anthony: more wine. [ laughter ] >> anthony: to see spain, to see it straight, to understand it at all, you should probably peek, if only through spread fingers, at that most spanish of traditions, bullfighting.
12:07 am
meet el fandi, one of spain's most dashing and respected bullfighters. he's invited me to la marquesas ranch, a private bullring where he likes to practice. [ man shouting ] >> alejandro: so, what they're going to do now is they're going to check how brave. >> anthony: and if the calf's not brave -- stew? >> alejandro: exactly. >> anthony: along with me for the day, fuen's brother alejandro, who, like many spaniards, consider bullfighting an art. today, a little practice first. and don't worry, this guy is too young to fight. ♪ >> alejandro: so this is the red cape, you know, that this is the most important cape. where they make all the art, all

[ el fandi speaking spanish ] [ alejandro speaking spanish ] >> alejandro: now's your turn. >> anthony: i don't think so. >> alejandro: sure. now's your time. you are him. he's going to teach you. >> anthony: yeah? >> alejandro: sure. >> anthony: okay. >> anthony: no one likes to look like a pussy on tv, so, when el fandi jokingly suggests i join him in the ring to wave a pink cape at an aggressive young
12:09 am
bull, who just moments ago charged my cameraman, i said what any idiot would say, "si." it all starts well enough. hey, this is fun. this is easy. >> anthony: whoa. >> anthony: until i get a horn hooked right up next to my nut sack. then it's not so fun. >> anthony: thanks, guys. oh, man. [ laughs ] this youngster shall live, perhaps to gore future tv hosts with his mighty horns. [ man shouting ] >> anthony: now, this, this is what a real bull looks like. this is a whole different thing, 500 freaking kilos of aggressive, charging, four-legged killdozer aiming at your meat and two veg. that's a lot of muscle. >> alejandro: yeah, that's a lot of muscle. that's a big bull. ♪
12:10 am
>> anthony: and no matter how big, how strong, how scary, for this intrepid reporter who's seen many animals die for his dinner, this part is never easy. >> alejandro: so, as you see, he puts the cape lower so the bull brings the face forward, showing the neck. that's it. good one. that was really good. and, um, yeah, that's it.
12:11 am
>> anthony: hey, it's time for stew. bull stew. our friend went to a better place after all, like a big pot, where he simmered slowly for hours with local herbs, onions, and potatoes. nothing like a roaring fire and a spread of iberico ham, homemade chorizo, spanish cheeses, bread, and good olive oil to take the sting out of a near genital mutilation. nice. >> alejandro: looks good, huh? [ el fandi speaking spanish ] >> alejandro: it's not a bad place to come, right? >> anthony: no. [ laughter ] now, you started, uh, at age 19? [ el fandi speaking spanish ] >> anthony: when you were a little boy, growing up -- >> alejandro: yeah. >> anthony: you aspired to be -- >> alejandro: exactly. >> anthony: a bullfighter. the matadors were the original rock stars, the very ideal of masculinity, male beauty, and grace. that runs deep.
12:12 am
like it or not, you should probably know this before dating a spanish guy. me, i'd happily see an end to it tomorrow. but there is no denying the terrible beauty of a very complex tradition. it's not about winning. it's not about killing the bull. it -- and it -- and nor is it about being just skillful. uh, you have to look good doing it, too. >> alejandro: yeah, exactly. >> anthony: are there any, like, really ugly-ass bullfighters? [ el fandi laughs ] >> anthony: like, a really out-of-shape, a matador with a muffin top. how do you call a muffin top? [ alejandro speaking spanish ] [ el fandi speaking spanish ] [ men speaking spanish ] >> alejandro: we've seen just a little bit, yeah. there's a little of everything. >> anthony: interesting. well, it was an education today and a great meal. thank you. >> alejandro: cheers. >> anthony: cheers.

>> anthony: holy week, or semana santa, as it's called. observed all over southern spain with a seriousness and a fervor you might not see elsewhere. for the seven days leading up to easter, nearly every city in andalusia gets taken over by ancient processions. to an outsider, it's an impenetrable montage of confusing, yet deeply evocative images. figures in dark hoods loom up from every direction. smoke pots of incense, candles, religious imagery, and the
12:17 am
crowds. flashes of goya and velazquez, dimly remembered impressions of the inquisition. [ men shouting ] >> anthony: okay, watch this. these guys got to get their painstakingly crafted, massively sized, and incredibly heavy and cumbersome float through the door, down the steps, and out into the street. >> pedro: but the woman who escort the virgin, they wear candles to light the whole way to the cathedral. >> anthony: pedro is another of fuen's brother, the youngest, and when not working for an it company in ireland, he does this. he carries crushingly heavy religious floats. they're called castilleros, and they devote months of training to this. man, that thing's huge. >> pedro: yeah, they're moving. it's huge. and this is very, very heavy -- very heavy throne.
12:18 am
>> anthony: the virgin float, about 3,500 pounds total, and precise dimensions that have to make it through the door just so. the bearers have to kneel.

12:19 am
>> anthony: let's face it, i like a procession and all but who likes a bunch of guys in hoods coming in your general direction? i don't. frankly, it creeps me out. time for a drink perhaps. this is tabernaculo, as best i understand it, an easter jesus and mary themed drinking establishment where between drinks one can ponder the agony of the christ, but with sausages. is it like this all year or just over easter break? >> pedro: it's the whole year. >> anthony: the whole year, it's always like this? >> pedro: the whole year, yeah. you have incense whole year, uh, easter music whole year. >> anthony: now, is this a week for quiet contemplation and worship or is this a party week, or both? >> pedro: both of them. >> anthony: throughout the course of the week, over 40-odd processions will creep slowly through these streets.
12:20 am
there are different brotherhoods, each with their own sacred colors, crests, insignia and so on. it's their medallions and particular christ images that adorn the bar. and, frankly, they're kind of bummin' me out. maybe it's just me, but when i'm getting a nice late morning buzz i don't particularly want jesus looking down at me from, like, everywhere. how drunk can you get here? don't you feel like a little guilty, like, getting really drunk here? >> pedro: yeah, of course. >> anthony: whoa, uh, morcilla? >> pedro: morcilla. >> anthony: oh, this is one of my favorite things. >> pedro: this is your favorite things? >> anthony: ever. yes. >> pedro: try it. it's amazing. >> anthony: gaze away disapprovingly all you like, jeebus. i am happy now. overlooking granada, the hillside of sacromonte is riddled with caves. many of them older than anyone even remembers. spanish gypsies or gitanos have lived here in caves-turned-homes like this for hundreds of years.

12:30 am
you may think you know what a tapa is, like if you've had small bites at some fusion hipster bar where they do a whole lot of little plates. yeah. that ain't a tapa. >> anthony: so how often do you do this a week? >> zack: i do it five days a week. >> anthony: dude. >> zack: it's -- >> fuen: sat -- saturday. >> zack: it's rare not to do this. but, you know, it's like on the weekend, you come out for a bunch. the weekday, you come out for one. >> anthony: this is la tana, a little place run by sommelier, jesus and louisa, brother and sister -- one bartender, one cook, taking care of everything. >> fuen: tapa is for free. that's the main issue of the tapa. >> anthony: so, you're just paying for the wine? >> fuen: exactly. >> anthony: so if i were like a degenerate wino, i could still eat well? >> zack: yeah. >> anthony: as long as i could afford my wine, i'd eat. >> zack: that's right. >> fuen: cheers. >> anthony: let us put this theory into practice. with our first round of drinks comes this.

>> fuen: this is tomato with bread, garlic, olive oil, and blended. >> anthony: yeah, i could pretty much eat that all day long. >> zack: yeah. >> anthony: that's right, tapas are free. it shouldn't work but somehow it does. another drink, another tapa. >> anthony: tomatoes, olive oil, bread. >> fuen: yeah. >> zack: yeah. >> fuen: awesome. and this for me is just amazing. >> anthony: so i just -- all i gotta do is keep drinking and i'm going to eat like a king? >> zack: yeah, and you'll keep eating here, yeah. although, uh, uh, maybe you'll be interested in caviar here. >> anthony: really? >> zack: yeah. >> anthony: that's not included with my, uh -- ? >> zack: no. well -- >> fuen: well, that's another point of the tapas. >> zack: yes. >> fuen: usually, you have a few tapas and then, you know, you ask for a -- >> anthony: you start to get hungry? >> fuen: yeah, you ask for a portion. >> zack: exactly. >> fuen: you ask for a portion. >> anthony: right. >> zack: they're just hooking you in with it. >> anthony: so it's all a scam, man. >> zack: it is a scam. >> anthony: they li -- a couple of little nibbles, the next thing you know, you're ordering, uh, 200 grams of caviar. caviar ain't free, my friend.

12:36 am

12:43 am
or did they want to conquer it, control it? >> zack: i mean, they were certainly trying to emulate it. you know, all their mathematics were really trying to find out how nature worked, particularly square roots and the repetition of pattern. >> anthony: they say mathematical patterns in the sky and on earth. the way water moved and rippled. the simple pine cone, a fern, a pomegranate. and they thought about the basic truths these things might represent. >> zack: these symmetries can all be shuffled, spun on any point, and they align again with themselves. so, if you stretched them out, for them, they pointed to infinity. >> anthony: we will understand all things. >> zack: through contemplating sacred geometry. >> anthony: how did nature unfold? pattern itself? could the basic designs of nature, even if divine, be replicated in this magnificent structure? trying to solve the riddle of god here. >> zack: exactly.
