Last weekend we did the Fukui Car Rally, and we did it up in style. In the style of fourth graders. Gangster fourth graders, with a hit rap single: Fuck Tha’ Souji.
For those at home who haven’t experienced the joy of a car rally, it’s basically a photo scavenger hunt sort of thing. Each team has a theme, costumes, and a mascot (ours was the illustrious Curious George who is, indeed, curious like a cat). You meet with the other teams in a designated place and receive a list of driving directions, photo tasks, and puzzles and then set off to complete the challenges and, purposely or not, terrify/charm innocent bystanders.
