(the first map of 22:24 post is the pit stop ranch; as Whirley confirmed, just go south on the Pan-Am and hang a left at Machachi)

A couple of portals to look through:
  • The Perry-Casteneda collection is impressive in its own right, but what's especially useful is their links page
  • A professor in the Netherlands has a bookmark collection that's useful; some of the links are outdated but there's still a lot of stuff to go through
And of course you can always ask Mr. Google. Doing an image search "location map" will help you weed out the worthless hits; however, it still won't find stuff like the excellent flash map of San Pedro.  :jam:

Thanks, GEORGIA PEACH for those of us who watched AMAZING RACE ASIA, it is nice to see your map of SARAWAK (eastern part of Malaysia attached to the BORNEO part of INDONESIA). It clearly shows KUCHING, where the final flight landed, and Bako National Park, where the finsh mat was.

I just saw a PBS program on Nature titled "The Andes: the Dragon's Back". It was superb adn I highly ecommend it to all of you. Animal life was shown throughout, but there were also some very interesting features on:

1. Cape Horn National Park and its penguins (I bet we won't see this on AR11)
2. Torres Del Paine National Park and its glaciers (again, improbable that we will see this on AR11)
3. Southern Patagonia Ice Fields - truly incredible, starting just northwest of Puerto Natales, Chile and continuing for 1560 square miles to the north, parelleling the coast but only touching it at one point with a glacier. I have attempted to attach a PDF map below but it is too large, so I am providing a link here:
Southern Patagonia Ice Fields Map by National Geographic
4. Flamingos in Chile, probably near San Pedro de Atacama, although the program did not say
5. Mt. Aconcagua - highest mountain outside of the Himalayas; program stated it is 5 miles (26,400 feet) high, but I know better; it is 22,841 feet high
6. fishing in the upstream Amazon River
7. a yearly ritual for villagers to climb to 16,000 feet (about 7,000 higher than) in the vicinity of Macchu Picchu to celebrate ancient traaditions

The premiere of "Bizarre Food - Ecuador" by Andrew Zimmern was tonight and I think it is worth summarizing here for Ecuador fans or those considering visiting there. He went first to the Equator and pointed out that MItad del Mundo is no longer actually on the Equator due to a revision in 1979 when global Positioning systems were introduced. The equator is nearby there at Museo Inti-Nan. He went to Quito, Otavalo and a lake in the Amazon tropical rain forest. He ate local delicacies. this was a travelogue as well as a food show.

First up in the Quito area was cuy, the guinea pig. Next were 3 soups: menudo(tripe and beef hearts), quero de librio (stomach outside lining), quadita (stomach inside lining with lots of potatoes). Third was motes made from corn.

In Otavalo, street food was the focus. Empanadas and cracklin pork were eaten.

In the Amazon, fresh caught piranha were roasted in banana leaves over a charcoal pit. Lemon ants were scooped out of the correct tree. Coconut grubs were harvested from rotted palms and then pan-roasted. The fermented corn drink chica was drunk.

A Maputo street map here, but it's large (1.3 mb). A smaller city map here; also from the same site, an interactive Mozambique map here.

Some Maputo expats have created a website (not in English) that includes a photo gallery and a tagged map. Zoom in to downtown Maputo and there's lots of things marked with photos, including markets and the pit stop ("fortaleza de Maputo").
