Here's the 2nd TV promo just in case I missed a few frames:

I still can't read any business sign; they might have a street name underneath

I think it's a Buddhist ceremony

Ho Chi Minh City is more than a 24 hour train ride away from Hanoi! (Remember Flo?)

Don't worry, the Ho Chi Minh Museum is in Hanoi (right where his preserved body is... creepy). Doubt we'd see teams in the entire museum complex though; they're pretty anal about cameras and stuff...
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

FWIW puddin, this is the Van Mieu, the Temple of Literature, main entrance gate at Vietnam's first University.

What if the leak in Sarah's leg causes them to retire from the race?  This might explain why they are in a different location.

^^ But Sarah was spotted in Kuwait by kkuwaiti , he said a girl with a prosthetic leg . (link)

So is this a pitstop or just confessionals between the challenges ?

Sarah:I'm right now walking and running on a blown out hydraulic knee . I've just got to jump in with both feet ..no pun intended. ( red flags blowing in the wind )
( same clothes )
 


David: tears come to my eyes .I started thinking about my dad being in Vietnam .( Also from EP2 this shot Mary talks about twisting her ankle )
( same clothes)


and then we have this
Check out the shirts, they're different the intro/flash. ( Neobie pointed out that there maybe 2 pitstops in Vietnam based on the clothing and banzai pointed out so many intro flashcaps for Vietnam)

Here's the pink T-shirts that puddin mentioned before; I don't think they change their clothes right before the confession
This pink T-shirts is still dirty too

That's a Vietnamese veggie  :jam:

so 2 or 3 teams finished before Dustin/Kandice? I see 5 rows of 5 = 25 pieces  ???

So Dustin or Kandice got hit then  (:;) One of them is on the sidewalk looking  :o

meanwhile, the cameraman is filming the Moms a few steps away  :js:

Quick check of embassies in Hanoi reveals that Argentina has a "powder blue" flag.  As far as I can tell, it's embassy is in a modern office building.  Are you sure it's a flag?  :-\   :groan:

in the next frame, you can see a temple gate; I don't know Chinese; and I think there's a dragon on the wall of the temple but not the Chilin
