I think these go together, camel racing. But I could be wrong.

Darn. I'm always late to the party.





Camel racing, Kuwait.





Chi Lin, mythical Chinese lion/horse creature.





Kite's at Tiananmen Square, Beijing. The memorial's in the background.





That's Chinese text on the red paper. Not Cyrillic (Mongolia) nor Roman (Vietnam). Looks like a medical hall to me.

Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

 :jumpy:  Think I found our "golden boy".  If you flip the vidcap of the golden statue (mirror view), then it looks a lot like the Peter the Great statue on the Moscow River. (Notice his right arm is raised. Oh those monkeys at CBS, messing with our minds.  :meow:

It's a recycled image.

The middle picture shows robot jockeys, adopted because the (mostly UAE) sheikhs were in trouble over kidnapping children for use as camel jockeys (see here). The cap on top may be a robot or just part of a saddle, it's hard to tell.

Cool on the statue!



The Mauritius flag!





TAR has a habit of covering different regions of the revisited country (a very good thing). This means the temple should be in the south of the Egypt this time. Aswan? Perhaps even Sudan. The geographical fits in well with the two elephants, more commonly found in the South. Is that a scarab at the top? If it is the temple's probably for Khepri (symbol in picture).

 :angel:  This vidcap looks like the Egyptian crocodile god Sobek.  Only thing, it's way too modern looking, too new, as are the columns behind it.  Reminds me of a theme park.   :-\

I thought the same thing about the croc statue, Boingo -- the courtyard it's in looks like it's in minor disrepair though; weeds coming up, etc. The temple looks way too well-maintained too, like a reconstruction.

Could the camel be a recycled image -- they did have to transport camels in Oman last year, right??

more info about black teeth in English:
http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/Asia/Vietnam/North_East/Bac_Ninh/Bac_Ninh/photo179422.htm
Quote
Most of old women in the country side of Vietnam have blackteeth like this. According to tradditional Vietnamese sense, black teeth is considered as a beauty of old woman . This message was indicated in many old literature of Vietnam .
They use tradditional liquid to dye their teeth. After dying the teeth will also last longer ( That is why Colgate did not make big investment in Vietnam and target only Vietnamese kids)
