Kevin and Joe, on the other hand, do not shake hands.
Kevin collects the clue, followed by Rob -- who, for some reason, says "welcome" to the shopkeeper. Rob is disoriented from the gum-grinding, I do believe. Cut to an ugly shot of Joe, doing the clear-the-streets-I'm-on-TV arm-waving thing that I just hate. Nancy, wandering unhappily. Back to Rob, inquiring about the fastest way back, propping his elbow up on his pack and giving me what is quite possibly the very best Tokyo-Stomper shot yet. Seriously, this shot could be from a medical documentary about arms. "Ladies and gentlemen, the human arm." I would go to that lecture. And pass the pop quiz after. I might actually wreck the curve. It's no wonder that arm inspires the writing of poetry.
Nancy, finally getting where she needs to go. The shopkeeper is kind enough to tell her she's "late," which I think just adds to her frustration and anxiety. Thanks, Clue Guy! Sheesh. Nancy seems to be tearing up already as she reads the clue. Nancy! Pull it together!
Karyn disembarks from her rickshaw, squawking the entire time. At first, she seems happy -- she's in first place, after all -- and then she seems grumpy almost immediately. "Why are we havin' such a hard time?" she gripes. God, Karyn, for what I only wish were the last time, SHUT UP.
Joe, waving his arms and trying to get the annoying peasants out of his way. Way to go for ultimate control over all people and things, Discount Joe.
Nancy makes a mistake here, I think, which is that she stays put on the rickshaw and tries to get people to tell her where the hotel is. She needs to get out of the craziness where she is and get herself to higher ground -- get back to Em, get back to the taxis, get OUT of the chaos. But she doesn't. She shows the clue to the swarms of people around her, most of whom don't appear to speak English very much, if at all, and certainly not enough to read an Amazing Race clue. As it turns out, she's also asking about a hotel that's a hundred miles away, so they're not all that likely to know where it is.
