It wasn't hard to scare up a picture with the phrase "tana taxi." Still a lot of Citroen 2cV taxis in use (source).

Still no shots of J/T or R/K doing mattresses? Could they have gone for the FF? I still don't understand how the FF will work this episode.

My guess is that after the tag-team Intersection mattress task, the teams can go for the FF.

Makes sense but why would they get the FF envelope at the Intersection? If they have do to the Inersection first wouldn't they not receive the FF envelope until they've complete the Intersection?

Can anybody help with a timeline and summary of what we know about this episode?

So far I've got:
--leave Port Louis airport Mauritius June 13 by either 1) charter flight (thanks gator27) or 2)There is only ONE flight from Port Louis to Tana according to airwise.com  It's Air Madagascar (MD) 0189 (codeshare with Air Mauritius (MK) 0289) leaving MRU (Port Lois) at 11:30 and arrives TNR (Tana) at 12:25 PM.  (thanks quingher)
 
--arrive Tana airport (Antananarivo (TNR), is 17km (11 miles) from the city. To/from the airport: Taxis asking special higher rates are available at the airport. Air Madagascar provide a regular bus service to Antananarivo. Facilities: Restaurant, bureau de change and car hire)

--Proceed to Lac Anosy (walkway to Monuments aux Morts) where new Intersection   clue is revealed

--TASK: teams pair up (R/K+T/J, BQ's+CHO's, Bama+D/M) and go to ?? marketplace where they carry foam mattresses

--??then FF??

--where do cow lips come in?? could that be the FF??? Titleist ??Mary??

--Do we know ANY Detours or Roadblocks?

--something with taxi?? (Traffic drives on the right. Bus: A flat fare is charged, irrespective of the distance traveled. Services can be unreliable and buses tend to be crowded. Taxi: Flat fares apply except in Antananarivo and Fianarantsoa, where fare is calculated according to whether the ride is confined to the ‘lower town’ or goes on to the ‘upper town’. There are two types of taxi: the taxi-be, which is quick and comfortable, and the taxi-brousse (bush taxi), which is cheaper, slower, makes more stops and generally operates on cross-country routes. Fares should be agreed in advance and tipping is unnecessary. Rickshaw: The pousse-pousse (rickshaw) takes passengers except where traffic or gradient renders it impractical. Prices are not controlled and vary according to distance. Stagecoach: A few covered wagons continue to take passengers in Antananarivo. Car hire: This is not widespread and car hire agencies can only be found in the main tourist towns. It is advisable to make enquiries in advance about insurance requirements for car hire. Motorbike hire: Available from several companies in Madagascar. Documentation: A national driving license is sufficient.)  Heee...covered wagons!

--Pitstop?? up on a hill in Tana-- (Presumed: D/M eliminated w/ T-shirts willed to Cho's and Bama's) Order of arrival??

--depart for Helsinki on June 15 (Air Madagascar operates four direct flights between Paris CDG and Antananarivo each week. British Midland operates a connecting service from London Heathrow, Leeds-Bradford, East Midlands and Edinburgh. You can also fly from any UK airport served by Air France for an extra charge. ...can fly to Paris ... to connect with Air France service...Alternatively, you can fly to Johannesburg and connect with the Air Madagascar or South African Airways service.)  OR could they leave on that late night flight to Helsinki on June 14th in some weird "keep on racing" leg...with another 16+ hours of flying,  it's hard to get them to Helsinki on time!

--possible flights: air France via Paris then finnair leaving 12:50AM arr either 4:25PM or 7:25PM OR air Madagascar via Paris dep (9:50PM arr2:50+1PM) Has anybody checked via J0-burg?

That's all I've got--anybody with more?

There are a couple of other flight options, including one leaving MRU at 1025. Here's the Air Madagascar timetable and the Air Mauritius website.

Added conflict! :meow: While completing a task with another team, the cooperating teams make quickly become adversaries as they compete for the FF.

Thanks Slowhatch! I had gone looking there too--but I think that on Tuesdays the only MRU-TNR flight is the 11:30 one, at least that I could find--schedule seems to vary by the day. And that seems a bit late per Chateau's great shadow analysis...

What about the getting out of Dodge flights? TNR via where to Helsinki?

Through Paris or Jo-Burg, maybe? It's hard to get a grip on the schedule because production seems to taking it easy on the racers (extended pit stops).

Hmmm...do we know for sure what day they left Mauritius? I think they arrived Mauritius June 12--so did they leave on the 13th or the 14th? If they had a 36 hour pitstop in Madagascar instead of Mauritius they could do the late night flight via Paris--I know they have to  be on the train in Finland on June 16th so I've been assuming they arrive on the 15th in Helsinki...

I believe they leave Mauritius on June 13. I think we've seen the last extended pitstop, as the dates get pretty squeezed from here on out with so many confirmed sightings:

EP8: Bel Ombre, Mauritius to Madagascar (EL #6?)/Filmed JUNE 13-14, will air NOV 5
EP9: Madagascar to Lohja, Finland (TBC?)/Filmed JUNE 15-16, will air NOV 12
       TEAMS SPOTTED IN FINLAND ON JUNE 16
EP10: Lohja, Finland to Kiev, Ukraine (EL #7?)/Filmed JUNE 17-18, will air NOV 19
EP11: Kiev, Ukraine to Ourzazate, Morocco (NEL #3?)/Filmed JUNE 19-20, will air NOV 26
EP12: Ourzazate, Morocco to Barcelona, Spain (EL #8?)/Filmed JUNE 21-22, will air DEC 3
         BARCELONA TIMELINE CONFIRMED -- JUNE 21-22
EP13: Barcelona, Spain to Paris, France to New York, NY (USA)/Filmed JUNE 23-24, will air DEC 10
        TEAMS SPOTTED ON PLANE JUNE 23, IN NYC ON JUNE 24

This is the view from the Hilton. I have a better pic but it's in a format that I can't convert for some reason. I found a building with the excact same color blue door but the windows don't match. Maybe there was a "blue light special" on paint in the area.  :groan:
I'd be really interested in finding the background for R/K confessional so we could tell which team was there first.

Edited: Here is a beautiful, but large, view of the part of the hill from the lake.

CBS heard us! We have Cow lips?  :jumpy:


A NEW TWIST SHOCKS THE RACERS AND FORCES RIVAL TEAMS TO WORK TOGETHER, ON "THE AMAZING RACE 10," SUNDAY, NOV. 5

"He Can't Swim, But He Can Eat Cow Lips" --

*The game's newest twist shocks the racers and forces rival teams to set aside their differences and work together.

*One team starts the leg with a huge handicap and will need to pull out all the stops in order to stay in the game. 

*The racers also struggle to complete an unappetizing task of consuming a local delicacy.  

*Every second counts as several teams run neck-and-neck in a race to the mat.

So far in the Race (with on exception) thay have had the serious food cahllenges at the last part of hte race.

S1;  Osterich Egg literally meters before hte pit Stop.
S4:  Ocopus one of the detours before hte Pitstop
Season 5:  The Cavier  The Roadblock before the Pitstop
Season 5:  Ostrich Egg The Roadblock before the Pitstop
Season 6:  The Spicy Soup.  The Roadblock before the Pitstop
Season 7:  4lbs of meat.  The Roadblock before the PitStop
Season 9:  Eating crickets.  Teh Fast Forward taking you directly to the PitStop

The only time it hasn't been right before the Pitstop (and it kind of was in its own special way) was in the first episode of htis season.  When it was the first task.  But it was right before an elimination point.

So I am guessing travel to new country.

Due Intersection.  Open clue, which offers the last Fast Forward of the race, tehn teams must go to a roadblock (and have no real detour) or due both with the roadblock being thelast tasks before arrival at the Pit STop.

Since we see Erwin and Godwin in the clothes of Mary & David, I assume that Mary and David only gave them that while they waited for their penalty to finish (with a small number of exceptins teams aren't allwed contact with eliminated teams.  Unless their is a penalty involved or a close finish where the two teams are right on top of each other (season 7 had three of those).

And once eliminated you are supposed to share belongings or money with other teams.

I assume with Mary's comment about David eating cow lips that they managed to get a leg up on some teams here.

I then imagine the race to the mat between teams is one of these two combinations.  D&K versus Ly and Karlyn (which I think likely) because if it was D&K versus the Cho's they wouldn't have enough time in my opinion to give the Cho's their clothes if they were just moments in front of D&K.

That of course if the race to the mat is the last bunch to the mat (and not just a random race to the mat sometime with any of the 6 teams.

I would also guess though waiting on visual clues that its Rob and Kimberly or Tyler and James who compete for the fast forward.  They are the only teams that are friends (and not part of hte sixpack) that have worked together.  And would really be the first tiem they have had to compete directly for one thing.

I guess it depends on if that green ticket is a Fast Forward or just the color of the new Intersection clue?
In Kandice & Dustins pitstop confessional it looks lighter out vs Rob & Kims. Doesn't mean they were filmed in that order though or am I wrong?
without too many clues I'll guess ..only a guess
James & Tyler ( come on guys!)
Rob & Kim
Dustin & Kandice
Cho's
Mary & David
The Lyns

Mary & David get the 30 minute penalty and hand over the shirts to the Lyns and the Kentucky's are elimnated

I've found a decent Tana map here but I can't link to it; just click on the Tana "center" map. Working backwards from the Hilton, I'm guessing the confessionals are in the Andohalo area (does everything start with an- or am- ?  :hlol). Compare the hill behind R/K and the BQ Anosy viewpoint (source page). The cathedral, maybe?

Puddin

Usually confesionals aer done right after a team has its Mat Chat with Phil (DAMN YOU CBS and SPRINT).

Though of course things like bathroom breaks can happen first.  And a few minutes to relax.

Well the Cho's had time to put the Kentucky's shirts on, lol. I don't know I'm stuck on the Fast Foward..is it or isn't it?  Say R/K & J/T go for it then only one gets it, well waht happens to the other team? do they do " beds" by themselves?


Thanks Slowhatch ..racking my brain cells trying to get a better shot of those cliffs,like Sups I can't get the angle.
