Amazing Race - Episode 2 - Culture Shock!

What I like most about travel IS culture shock. What the teams on Amazing Race seemed have the most difficulty with was culture shock.

Imagine racing around the country and landing in Ghana. It was an interesting episode full of market scenes, women carrying immense baskets of fruit and goods on their heads and some evidence of desperate poverty.

It was an interesting episode. The highlight for me was the amazing, colorful coffin scene. Imagine, beautifully crafted coffins shaped like pianos, a camera, different animals. Hmmm. With a coffin selection like that, I might have to re-think my cremation plans!

What did others think?
