Rob mentions that it's a "pretty nice day here in Africa." Amber agrees, as she is wont to do. "It's only about 140 degrees today," he adds, as an ostrich jogs along the road ahead of them. "Get outta he-ah," he says with surprise, giving a little ostrich-chasing honk. "This is crazy," Amber laughs as she looks at what are actually several ostriches frolicking along the road. She compares this favorably to your average animal crossing, with its deer and so forth. She tells us in an interview that going on an African safari was one of the things she has always wanted to do, so this was an awesome opportunity. Of course, she was likely envisioning an African safari where she would be competing against animals for a million dollars or something, but this will have to do. "We're just trying to keep it all in our heads and remember everything, 'cause we're just so lucky," he says. "We're the two luckiest people in the world," she comments simply. (Somewhere, Lex cracks a molar while grinding his teeth.)
Uchenna and Joyce turn toward Maun. Lynn and Alex, just behind them, notice that Uchenna and Joyce are going a little slowly, and they decide to pass. They beep-beep and wave as they go by, which is like gloating, only more passive-aggressive. Uchenna and Joyce comment on their unhappiness at being passed. Up ahead, Lynn is enthralled by the appearance in the road of a bunch of cows. As it happens, the cows part as he approaches. Wow. Maybe that's his superpower. Wouldn't that suck if you turned out to have a totally unmarketable talent, like parting a sea of cows with your mind? Anyway, Lynn doesn't seem to mind. "Oh, thank you, cow-cow," he says with affection, sure that they are stepping aside because he stopped to help Brian and Greg when their car flipped, unlike you-know-who. "It's weird when there are animals ker-rossing the road," Lynn says emphatically. Uchenna and Joyce have to honk a bit more to clear out one particularly stubborn errant cow, but they get through as well.
Meredith and Gretchen come up to a structure along the road, and she wonders aloud whether it's the water tower. But when they drive in and look around, they see no clue box anywhere. Then Gretchen checks the clue and notes that they have to drive through Maun first, so this can't possibly be the water tower yet. They continue on, and they see the sign for Maun and get going.
