The boys are invited to the famous banquet at Picasso's studio in honor of Henri Rousseau, and along the way they learn what Cubism is all about.
A year later, Young Indy and his family meet Theodore Roosevelt, former President of the United States, who is on safari in British East Africa (now Kenya).
