I have never been to Iguacu Falls, but I have always wanted to so I know what it looks like from many different angles. Those falls are nothing like Iguacu Falls. We are not about to see a repeat of AR2, Episode 2. Getting to the corner of Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina is not so easy to do from Ecuador and neither is getting back to Punta Arenas from there. Time does not exist in this race to stop anywhere in that vicinity unless they were doing it episode 5 as a side trip between Buenos Aires airport and Sao Paulo airport, which I highly doubt.

Since I have nothing to do thought I'd go back to the introcaps
more on the Arm Art , this one in Kenya where hair "plating" is popular.

This shot was taken in:

Portuguese Fort, Maputo, Mozambique.

See the soldier on the far left in the first link & note the yellow walls in the second.

1. Close up of relief in fort.

2. Wide shot of reliefs in fort.

Great pair of eyes :jumpy:  And it makes sense since Mozambique was once a Portuguese colony!

Chateau should get credit for the fort; Mwooden did a great job on the relief (good catch, very few pictures of it are posted anywhere).

It was driving me crazy too -- wish it could have added another location to the route, but c'est la vie.

You did great mwooden! I was hoping for a new location too but ah well. It's looking like we will see 3 legs in Africa and one leg in Europe/Poland and one in Malaysia, 3 in Hong Kong and then we know the rest..Guam, HI, to San Fran.

Great job, mwooden. :tup:

Yeah, it would have been nice if the reliefs were from another country in Europe.

Very Nice mwooden  :tup:

The only thing I had to do with this was finding the fort in GE.  Sifting through thousands of images... That's the real work!

And you rock at that Chateau :luvu: ..nobody does it better :ya3: :hero:

eta: and you don't give yourself enough credit Chateau! You do much more than sift through GE! You can predict the order of the teams arrivals & departures, you correctly predict tasks which I find just amazing..and thats just a start of all the things that you do for us..  :luvya:

PUDDIN:

3 legs in AFRICA - check

1 leg in EUROPE - check

1 leg in MALAYSIA - check

3 legs in the HONG KONG area - no way it will be more than HONG KONG and MACAU separately, which is 2

Possible route of race (based on number of legs per continent theory):

Leg 5 (Argentina to Mozambique) = Non-elimination point
Leg 6 (Mozambique to Africa [probably Tanzania]) = 5th team eliminated
Leg 7 (Africa [probably Tanzania] to Africa [probably Kenya]) = 6th team eliminated
Leg 8 (Africa [probably Kenya] to Poland) = TBC
Leg 9 (Poland to Malaysia) = 7th team eliminated
Leg 10 (Malaysia to Macau) = Non-elimination point
Leg 11 (Macau to Hong Kong) = Non-elimination point
Leg 12 (Hong Kong to Guam) = 8th team eliminated
Leg 13 (Guam to Hawaii to San Francisco) = Final 3

Just what I thought. Although, if the "Marked for Elimination" penalty is still in effect, maybe there are no consecutive NELs. What if the TBC ends in a NEL in leg 9 and leg 10 is an elimination leg? That would suck so much though, considering that you waited for the continuation of a TBC leg the following week, and find out that no one has been philiminated.

Another possibility is if leg 7 is a NEL/TBC, leg 8 is an elimination leg, leg 9 is a NEL/TBC, and leg 10 is another elimination leg.  B:) :lol:

Boingo had already marked down the Petrohue "saltos" and the cap from last night confirmed it: it just wasn't the usual tourist photo viewpoint (from a helicopter maybe).
