How about this? We know they go to the Helsinki train station  --which is connected by an underground tunnel to Stockmann's Department Store ("a Helsinki institution")--which has an Internet Cafe on the first floor!

Did we get this page the first time around? The posts start on 16 June and it mentions Turku, Helsinki, Madagascar, etc. I ran it through an online translator, which was a giant waste of time. One sample (original and translation):
  • Olisikin ollut vänkää jos ne olisivat olleet Tampereella ja joukkueiden eteen olisi isketty lautasella 1,5 kg mustaamakkaraa.
  • Olisikin ollut vänkää if those olisivat averaging Tampereella and joukkueiden before olisi stabbing plate kg mustaamakkaraa.
  :groan:  :lol:

Slowhatch, this one Signal translated here .Maybe you can piece the words together with that?  :lol:
"On the way there it was exciting when a group of people with camera and sound crews came aboard from Tampere (express train 920) carrying backpacks.
After the journey beginned I found out that they were The Amazing Race's upcoming season's participants and of course camera crews etc.
It will be the the series 10th season that will be aired in the US in the fall, in Finland maybe next year. In the gallery you can find some pics.
When arriving to Turku we got the chance to see the participants jumping to rental cars in front of the train station and then headed to the city with cameramen
and helicopter following them."

Mustamakkara is a type of sausage found in Tampere. Maybe the poster was buying some sausage when the race passed by, or...maybe the racers had to eat 1.5 kg of it.

I goofed on the time estimate I made earlier.

This shot was taken between 10:23 and 10:43 pm (assumes June 16th)

Yes, the sauce was good.

But the sausage made everybody at the table wonder where was the dog poop.

Yeah, Chateau!  :jumpy: The timing on the rappel makes much more sense now.

So I'm thinking they hit the internet cafe in Helsinki first,
Then the swamp detour in Ylojarvi,
Then change clothes,
Then head to Turku,
Then drive to the Tytyri mine roadblock in Lohja,
Then head back to Helsinki for the rappel,
Then find Phil for the TBC.

Now it's all coming together.  :tup:

*1--Okay, guys--we still have to get them out of Antananarivo to Helsinki! They still have 15-18 hours of flying ahead of them!

Was there an extended pitstop in Madagascar? Cause checking Airwise, there are no flights on June 14th TNR to Helsinki...(didn't check unusual connections, ie via Jo-burg...)

On June 15th, they can catch an Air France/Finnair via Paris (CDG) departing at 0130 and arriving at either 4:15PM or 7:20PM (depending on connections out of CDG) OR
Air Madagascar departing 10:30PM and arriving (again via CDG) at either 2:50Pm+1 or 4:15PM+1, depending on connections.-- too late for what they have scheduled--OR
There is a Corsair flight that leaves at 10:15AM and arrives (via Orly-Paris) at 0245+1 in Helsinki...this would be great time wise but I can't confirm that this flight was available on June 14 or 15--Airwise doesn't show it.

I'm new to this--anybody out here with more experience?   ???  We have to get them to Helsinki for a VERY full day on the 16th!

*2--puddin--in searching for an Internet cafe--try to match up the windows! That's the biggest clue we have...That's why I like Stockmann's....

*3--and just because I love my new picture posting skill  ;)--

Sometimes those flight schedules (e.g. Airwise) are incomplete/misleading. More than once, flights have shown up on the Race that didn't pop up on Airwise IIRC.

Well, they were seen in Helsinki-Vantaa airport 16th, climbing the Helsinki Olympic Stadium tower 16th, Tampere and Ylöjärvi 16th, Turku 16th, so it looks like all happened same day.

This statement from Signal tells me that they arrived on the morning of the 16th.  For example on Lufthansa 573/3100 from Frankfurt arrived at 10:30 am (originating from J-burg 8:15 pm on the 15th).

It makes for a tight, but possible, schedule to do all the tasks and get back to the stadium in Helsinki by 10 pm.

I'd rather see them doing the stadium rappel on the 15th and then all the other stuff on the 16th.

Heeee, me too! I know I'd have to go right to bed for a week if I did that! Oooh--face down!

Thanks for the flight help everybody--one of you will find it I'm sure!

What (if anything) do we know for sure about NEL's and TBC's based on who has been seen where? Is Finland supposed to be either?
 and is there ANY doubt about whether it is the Cho's or the BQ's who go out next? I thought it was Cho's then BQ's but is this for SURE?

I try to keep up but....

Has anyone been able to get a logo from the rappelling helmets? I've been rummaging in mountaineering forums in Helsinki but no luck so far...

This Sunday I'm guessing a TBC, we can't lose another Racer yet with so many legs to go plus lack of Finland confessionals vs Ukraine's Tyler & James conf that we saw in EP7 & 8 but you know that already right peach?
I think the NEL's go hand in hand with the Fast Forwards ..its a way to let the marked team come in first so I think we're done with them.
Cho's or BQ's eliminated next..editing and a gut feeling is telling me the BQ's go before the Cho's.The BQ's are a little too over confident right now and the editors are making them the villain's where as the Cho's are the Good Natured guys.
Sightings of the team drop off after Finland ..to Paris. So yeah again it's the Cho's or BQ's next elim leg.

Yeah, even with out spoilers, based on the edit of the show both on footage in teh episodes and footage in the clips, Dustin and Kandice arrogance, expecially concerning the other female team, really seems to make them out to be teh surprise earlier boot of the women teams.  ANd I would love it if the Cho's lasted longer then D & K.  Though I honestly don't expect it.

Heee...Me too! I want more clues!

But what "End City"--do you mean in Finland or "end city"  end -of-the-race city??

I should be working on my own trip! But I'd rather be going to Kiev.... :blume:

End City as in NY..there are so many possability's if NY is End City ..I can't find permits but there are SO many parks they could use. Tyler lived in NY so he might have an advantage but so did Frank and Margarite and we know how that ended,lol.
