BETTER TITLE QUOTE: "It's Really Hot and I Need My Sunscreen" - Kym
Tonight, the teams went to work with the rest of Marrakesh and its breathtaking surrounding settings. Stepping off the Pit Start, the duos jogged the old quarters to transport sacks of hay onto a dried mud rooftop. Heavy the hay is, the real challenge apparently was for keen eyes and navigation... Amy & Maya
.. For not beating themselves out, they were rewarded with a free Moroccan carriage ride by a team of horses afterward. The next task is to drive smooth Ford sedans into the rural southern region of Marrakesh where they had to open their eyes to finding a clue box in amidst a marked pottery vendor. A Detour was encountered. After the Detour, teams went to T'erre de Amanar to perform tightrope acts of balance and fear conquering, a great Halloween task! Alas, the Pit Stop at a kasba proved to be an emotional and joyful awakening for many of the teams.DETOUR:
(Berber Living or Butter Leavening)
In Berber Living, teams had to construct an authentic Berber tent with the provided materials. Surprisingly, only Tim & Te Jay took a chance with this task despite its nonexistent time strain. I found the task interesting, but not intriguing. In Butter Leavening, teams had to milk a goat and churn butter using a traditional shake method while being serenades by a lovely Berber folk musician. The elapsed time to gyrate a solid blotch of butter took nearly an hour's work, but teams succeed with patience and focusing on nature, not pain. I really liked this cultural task.DETOUR SCORE:
(Who has a knack of sliding things in place?)
This Roadblock pitted teammates to a Halloween nightmare of facing two fears in one task - falling into a canyon and puzzles! Shocking! I never imagined Morocco having a scenery of green trees and Grand Canyon-like features. I've always imagined the rural regions of Morocco to be as desolate and dry like what TAR10 portrayed. I really loved the teams conquering their fear and channeling their fortuity of incredible heights, but the puzzle was quite simple even for a confused Brooke. ROADBLOCK SCORE:
