Run around, collect items, greet cultural villagers (“Hi, chief!”), swap Polynesian Cultural Center reminiscences, etc. Jai is in cultural-dork heaven. Cim makes friends with the tribal greeters. A good time is had by all.
We deliver our final item (a tribal war helmet, it would seem) and get our next clue. It says drive back into Soweto to find the Baragwanath Market…
Blech. Neither of us likes to shop. But it’s for the orphans! Shopping for orphans! (“How much for ze leetel girl?”) Either of us can do this. Jai has done the last two Roadblocks, so it’s Cim’s turn.
Jai waits at the outer
edge of the market and trades quips with Brian about spelunking and marketing.
Cim shops up a storm. Toy, shirt, diapers, blanket, backpack. Check check check check aaaaand check! Hey, throw in a little something extra, while you’re at it. It’s for the kids, after all.
Shopping completed. Deliver items to Orlando Children’s Home.
is awesome! Best Roadblock Ever! All those kids cheering when we race
in. It is very touching. Cim cries like a little girl. (Even Jai gets
a bit choked up, and it is a well-known fact that she is dead inside.)
We high-five the kids, kick around the football, wish we could hang out
and play some more. But no, gotta get back on task.
