okay so the Roadblock is first? but why take a cab from the detour? It's not that far? unless they were told to?  Nice picture of the ram and giraffe's  Boingo!  :yess:


ETA: oh DUH, not sure what the other Detour option is so never mind ^^^

 :lol:  OK, based on Slowhatch's map (flipped BTW), and GE address, the Golden Dragon Water Puppet Theatre should be one these buildings.... pick one!   :groan:  :neener:  :funny:

So we came full circle!  :lol:



I found of all things, a Christmas Giraffe and here. Maybe we could tie it in with the detour some how?

Ah, the spirit of the holidays. Frosty the snowman, the Christmas tree, and a baby giraffe. I suspect this long tradition of the Christmas giraffe is what prompted Toys-R-Us to use that as their mascot, Geoffry. This is just a little part of the large Christmas diorama in the athletic park directly behind Reunification Palace.

Could it be that Lance and Keri are looking for the Christmas Diorama...are lost...and end up at the Water Puppet place by mistake? 

Maybe that isn't really part of the Detour?

Cause there sure aren't any giraffes in the water puppet plays featuring the local Vietamese life... :lol:

If you watch the extra clip we are led to believe that Ericka/Brian and Lance/Keri are just arriving at the Detour, well Lance and Keri anyway because we see Lance pulling the rope of a critter in the other clip,  if so Zev and Justin already have a good lead right?

Lance and Keri are lost in the District 1 area ..I recognize the slim homes, not sure what parking lot they are at  though but it has the Opera House colors for example

So, judging by the balloons...the Trotters are almost finished with their Detour, but Greylock is just starting.

SO from the extra clip...they take their animal to various checkpoints to get a balloon, right?

The question would then be must those balloons be obtained in a special order...or do you just need thenm all at the end?

Makes a difference who might be in first.

I think Montana may be just outside the park, at the corner of Nguyễn Thị Minh Khai and Huyền Tr‚n CŰng Chķa. Compare the wall in the background, the curved tree, the busted pavement, and the balustrade barely visible on the right (photo source).

I think from this confessional we can conclude that Zev & Justin are safe this leg, right? They don't look like they just got eliminated to me.

Okay...I am still obsessing. Why do Keri and Lance's screen caps say lawyers?? She is listed as a health care finance manager...is she really an attorney too?

The giraffe was a mistake, we could have grabbed any animal but we grabbed the biggest tallest thing because it was closest
to us. I saw on the clue that if a piece of your animal  breaks you have to pick it up so you could get your balloon


They told us they work with homeless kids but  I don't see that being true at all, they don't give off that warm let me help you out vibe.

As a parent its still difficult to accept him as an adult

With Mika I am"sexually pure", thats important to me because of my faith

Justin and Zev are our least favorite team, we've just never got warm vibes off of them. 
Lance says hes a lawyer which were really not sure if he is or not .. don't want to use the word meathead in the wrong since but I cannot picture Lance in a courtroom

I think one of the frustrating things that were starting to learn on the race is that both of us are tending to try to take the leadership role .. so its frustrating to me to not be able to convince him you know to keep going one block and ask for directions ..we'll just turn back

Martindale search draws a blank. Morrone? yes. Morrione? No lawyer by that name anywhere.

 :lol:  Now that I look at it more and more, the pictures in Posts 94 & 106 must be of the same Christmas diorama (as the date suggests), only different views.  Maybe BVM will do a "Christmas in July" task in HCMC with the animals.   :snicker:

See it looks like Lance and Keri are on the edge of the park, on a corner if anyone wants to fly around it (this might be the buildings, just a different angle, older photo)
