Sunday, September 10th, 40 au pairs from 16 different countries raced around Santa Monica’s Pier and Third Street Promenade finding clues for their AMAZING RACE/SCAVENGER hunt. For many, this was the first time doing such an event. These au pairs were enjoying a fun day off from doing childcare duties for their host families. Map in hand and clue booklet, they ventured out with activities such as answering trivia about Santa Monica, knowing how to say “How are You” in 5 different languages, taking a photo with a policeman and finding a Chinese menu. These were among the many ways to score points during their 1.5 hour adventure. There were prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams, of Starbucks gift certificates. Beforehand, they played the “Same Game” to loosen up and to get to know their fellow au pairs. When they returned to Tongva Park, the starting and ending point, they enjoyed refreshments and beverages.
