It's the Queens palace, gator but it doesn't match the windows.
I wish I could get a better picture of Andohalo and its surroundings  :'(

Thanks Sups!!

" I found a couple of pictures of buildings that had the same blueish-gray paint and brick color. Iím afraid that probably isnít uncommon in the area. I wanted to post this pic to show the color (even though itís not THE building) but itís way too large and for some reason the software I use to mess with pictures is acting up. I think the Choís pic has bars on the window also.

I found a Hotel on the cliffs but no good pictures yet. And I might be on the wrong cliff, lol.
Hotel Mahatazana

Mahatazana means nice view. Our guests, as well as the guide book author Wolfgang Dšrr (Reise Know How) are impressed by the "great view" on Antananarivo with its palace.
The hotel is in the West of Antananarivo on a hill (about. 1300m above sealevel) in
a rural, quiet area, just about 7 km from town centre.

Thanks Banzai. I only got a few dozen hits on "vavan'omby." Clicking the translate button doesn't work because Google thinks it's French.  :hallo2

so it is the Fast Forward?

Is it the FF? All 4 members of the combined team must do it so if it is the FF then they would be letting 2 teams get the FF? Maybe the intersection is really a detour that you must do with a paired team. J/T and R/K chose the eating one and all the others chose the mattress one. Just a guess. Eating something gross does go along the FF line though. I don't know ........  :groan:

Maybe thats the twist? Mary & David can't go for the Fast Forward and they are teamed with the Lyn's so they can't go for the Fast Foward? could be the Barbies already know the other teams went for it? or they try but its taken?
In away it seems fair to have a Fast Forward this leg being as Mary & David had the same chance when they were saved by the NEL the first time.
But theres only two Fast Forwards this season so what happens when we have the next NEL.. or maybe we have no more NEL'S? Maybe just a Super leg?  :hallo3

The shape of the roof and the red/yellow scheme seem to match the tana central market--photo here and photoset here (more "omby" stuff on sale; I've learned my first Malagasy word  :grins:).

So if eating cow lips is the FF task then both teams get the FF. They are considered 1 team at this point so they are not competing against each other. Right?? Thats why I was wondering if this is the FF because it seems weird that 2 teams would win the FF.

Yeah, It is interesting, if htis is a fast Forward then the two teams apparently both must complete the tasks to recieve the clue.  It would then be a race from that location to the Pit Stop.

I just can't see it being a Detour type choice.

Why would any team pick a eating detour?

Does that make any sense at all to anyone.

I mean hell, Kimberly's afraid of diseases from Water.

I would assume everyone has watch the show before.  And no one would willing pick a food detour, over a task like carrying matresses.

SO in my mind it has to be Fast Forward.  And even that can be too difficult for some.

Imagine last season if BJ & Tyler and Ray and Yolanda had to finish that before moving forward.  I think they would still be there.

And if Its a Fast Forward, I wonder if tey will allow a team to check in at the same time (if in first) and both get a prize.  They have done it before, and they have also notdone it before (in fact in season 4 three teams tied for first at got the prize in the first leg, but in leg 8 or 9.  Reichen and Jim & Jon and Al stepped on together and Jon and Al got the prize.

I will admit, I am really curious aboutt his leg.

Just thinking if they don't do it, and have to go back, purhaps the reason David and Mary have time to give clothes to Bama and CHo's is them waiting out the 30 minutes while these two teams check in.

If I had the option the cow's lips sure as heck looks faster than the beds?
Maybe Chateau can give us some sort of estimate on the sun shadows? if impossable I understand.

Eeeewwwwww....I do Not  think this is a good idea--Mad cow disease! Yuck!

Still can't figure out detour vs. FF or special "Intersection rules"...

Found this great site with multiple city views--gorgeous photos! city views

Keep clicking previous to go to several different panoramic views. The one with the stadium shows a tree covered hill on the left--i think there is a viewing area up there where you look down on the lake--can't find it any more though :'(

--maybe some of these photos will help??

Well its definately that lime green color. Are the clues inside the envelopes the same color? It's slinder enough to be instructions and not the actual envelope.

those clips?  :hallo3  I think it's a FF. I don't think they'll make the Intersection green too.

The Intersection looks yellowish.


 They all share the same cab so it's a foot race to the mat  :knuckles:

another vidcap  :jam:
