Lori and Bolo, Kris and Jon, and Hornio are all close together bringing their donkeys toward the finish line. Kendra, on the other hand, is having an asthma attack, apparently a long-forgotten ailment of her youth. Freddy assures her that she's just hyperventilating, and she needs to control her breathing. "I'm okay," she says to a nice local kid -- maybe a young teenager -- who's suddenly walking beside her, putting his hand on her shoulder. "I have...breathe problems," she says. He takes her pack for her. She comments in an interview how much she loved the kids in this town. They held her backpack, they encouraged her, and she was crazy about them. Good thing their parents kept breeding and breeding. I can only hope she learned a little something from this experience, because...seriously. I mean, seriously. Kendra seems to recover from her attack, and she actually reaches over to pat the kid on the shoulder and thank him. Look how she's touching a poor person on purpose, right here in a Third World country. Go figure.
"Have some self-respect, Victoria!" Jonathan barks as he stomps along in his bandanna and red underpants. 'Nuff said.
Hayden finds her way to the medallion that's just like hers, and she gets her clue. As she leaves, she runs into a little kid who asks her her name, and tells her that his name is Balai. She interviews more about the "great experience" in the church, and then she and Aaron are reading their next clue, which is about going to Lalibela Lookout. Phil says that this is about a one-mile hike. And the last team to check in "may be eliminated." Hayden and Aaron are surrounded by helpful kids who want to show them where the lookout is.
Lori and Bolo turn in their donkeys, and Lori takes the Roadblock. Right behind them are Kris and Jon, with Kris taking it for her team. When Lori gets to the priest to get her medallion, she actually kneels. I have no idea whether kneeling is necessary or even appropriate, but honestly, I just appreciate the effort, you know? The effort to be gracious and respectful. She gets her medallion and leaves. Kris heads in just after her. She leaves with her medallion and starts examining worshippers. Lori, on the other hand, has left the church entirely and winds up back in the surrounding area until she reads the clue and realizes where she went wrong. She heads back down the path. "Oh, outside the church," she mutters. "I'm so stupid." I'm so sympathetic to people in these situations, because seriously, I do that stuff all the time. My life has basically been a series of situations in which I miss the worshippers right outside the church and go wandering the mountains in confusion. Fortunately, I usually stumble across, like, a happy bunch of weirdos having a barbecue, and everything winds up working out. ["In fact, that's how she came to work at TWoP." -- Sars]
