The Radisson SAS Hotel
The Radisson SAS Hotel was, like all the other five star hotels in Kuwait, badly damaged during the iraqian invasion in 1990/1991. After the liberation it was completely renewed. Here, you have some views from the roof of the hotel to the Viking Club and to the Al Boom restaurant at the left. The Al Boom restaurant is located in a traditional Kuwaitian sailing dhow, behind the Radisson SAS Hotel, directly at the beach. The restaurant offers steak & seafood from the grill. Behind the Al Boom restaurant you see another ship under construction. It's the Al Bagalah, the largest wooden sailing ship which should ever be built. Here a view from the Al Bagalah to the Al Boom restaurant.  Al Boom Al Boom Al Boom by night
Here is a view from the inside ,

From the deck you can see the beach and some of the many houses along the coastline to the east.

Shadows on the Lyns , Captain Obvious ? :kogsey

You can also see the luxurious Radisson SAS Beach Club from the deck. It's not cheap to join, but if you are into high living this is a great place to go to play and relax.

This shot was taken between 1:06 and 1:34 pm (assumes June 8th)

But they checked in between 2:46 and 3:30 pm on the 7th.  Don't know what to make of that.


So, is this the pit stop where they leave from or another box they go to?  I'm trying to figure out which is the right time they leave pit stop.  Very confusing (at least to me.  :umn: ).

RJ, yes that was the pit stop they leave from India.  The weird thing is that they are clearly not leaving 12 hours after checking in.

I can't believe I did not spot this when scanned the GE image a few days ago.

Look at that Dhow shadow!

I'm just curious...how can you tell the time of the picture of P&S?  You are SO good at that, but was wondering if you can tell me. 

On the Dhow shadow, what are you saying about it?

D&M are shaded in the shot.  The wall that has the window stops seeing sun after 2:30 pm.  I think D&M are in the shadow of the Dhow.  That would mean the shot was pretty much after 5 pm.

RJ, I think my posts are out of sync with your question!

About the Dhow shadow in the GE image, that is some other day some other time.  I was just amazed at how clear it is from the satellite view.

For the D&M shot the Sun has to be coming from the west (end of day) and actually a little bit north of west.  That would throw the Dhow's shadow over D&M.  At 5 pm the Sun was 13 degrees north of true west and 27 degrees above the horizon.

This is where I get my sun angles from:  Sun Earth Moon Applet
The rest is figuring out where the picture was taken and just estimating the angles.  Banzai found some program that helps to do this but I have never craked it open.  It would swallow me up I'm afraid.  So I just estimate as best I can.  Sometimes I will throw in a Cosine correction (that's the effect where you can make an angle bigger or smaller when you view it obliquely).

Puddin, I can't place the Alabama shot.  If the white surface is on the Dhow (just speculating) then those building in the background need to match what we see in GE.  I haven't been able to say "yes" or "no".  Mostly "no" but I suppose I may not be looking in the right places.

If it is then the shot was bout 2:30 pm.

Oh I love trying to figure out who gets the fast forward. Since the clue says one team helps another to secure the ff my guess is that the team does get the ff. Without seeing any promos my first guess is that the Lyns get the ff with the Cho's help.

So  the Cho's dont help David & Mary try and get to the ff? Sorry I just have a few moinutes to read today and can't catch up on everything.. I am confused?

I think the shot of Alabama may be out at the FF location.

They want to make sure they can or can not try for it.
