I spend so much effort to find this. I am not sure whether it is true.

The scene with a man doing tai chi...I suspect it is Lou Lim Ieoc Garden from Macau, next to Hong Kong

Good job schwarzmoor  :jumpy: ...that goes for everyone!

I'm guessing it's a statue of soldiers (epaulets on the left shirt). As for the helo, could it be tied in to the rescue caps? There's a variant of the blackhawk called the seahawk.
Gotcha Slowhatch  :tup:

I find some additional information...If what I find is true, there should have been an art exhibition held there.
The chinese wording is the theme of that exhibition.
It started from 18/11/2006 to 17/12/2006. According to what I find, it is closed on Monday.
Based on the information, I think the teams arrived on 12/12

The chopper is American, as US Navy.  It has those insignia.  Not that you can see it in this.

But you can in the one that I will get up after the West Coast show.

Here is a zoom in on the Lou Lim Ieoc Garden intro cap.  Maybe someone can read it.

Here's that Hong Kong shot.  It seems to have been taken at the same time as the Panaramio shot.

So the helo is probably from Hawaii, then. An old liberty ship on Shipwreck Beach in Lanai (I can't link to it directly). Kmz attached.

Or, as peach suggested, the chopper could be a MH-60S Knighthawk used on Guam by the Helicopter Combat Support (HC) Squadron 5 (now called Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron TWO FIVE [HSC-25] ) .  They do a lot of "vertical lifting".

As what I have said

I find some additional information...If what I find is true, there should have been an art exhibition held there.

I read the "lesiure" word only...I don't know if it is related to the exhibition.

I found some information about the exhibition

The marimba or African xylophone can be found in Mozambique and Tanzania (as well as other places in Africa).

Nice one, Schwarzmoor! I remember the Chinese name of the exhibition: 花草閒拾. Fits the one in the caps!

:groan: I was RIGHT THERE just days (12 December 2006) before they were!







On another note, can anyone tell what language this is? The clip isn't recycled footage, and it doesn't fit into the languages we already have on the course (Spanish, Polish and Portuguese use the Roman/Cyrillic alphabet, and that most definitely isn't Chinese). I'm positive it's from the Mon-Khmer family, but which one?




Lao numerals


Khmer numerals


Thai numerals

Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

:jumpy: Got It!

Equestrian statue of King Jan III Sobieski, victor at Battle of Vienna (1683), trampling a vanquished Turk.

Łazienki Park. Warsaw, Poland



Dahg gahn it, the one pix I had a sure thing for and I get beat to it!  Lazienki Park is also the site of many other best known Warsaw attractions including the Chopin Monument, Palace on the Water, Myslewicki Palace and The White House.  Many tasks could be done in the area.

The Golden Boy is a recycle from Moscow and is a Close up of the statue of Peter the Great upon his ship which is located in the Moscow River nerar the Kremlin.

Can't spot any other European footage to clue other stops in Europe.  Most shots seem to be recycled scenes once again.

A trip to MACAU accomplishes one goal for Amazing Race production - it keeps the racers somewhat out of sight. I believe that all the U.S. Amazing Races are shown just like the TAR Asia was on AXN locally in Hong Kong, so people in MACAU would be less able to recognize the racers. Macau still shows its history until 1999 as a Portuguese colony and is much less "cutting edge" than Hong Kong. The principal industry in Macau is gambling, which does draw visitors from Hong Kong. I recall taking the hydofoil (slightly over one hour each way) from Kowloon to Macau and return.

The China Ferry Terminal (trips to Macau, 33 Canton Road) is down the waterfront from the Cultural Centre. Just speculating...

 ;D  Looks like you made the same mistake I did last race.  I thought puddin discovered that the "golden boy" was actually the "silver girl" holding the sword/shield in Ukraine.   :angel:
