If indeed Maputo, Mozambique is leg 5 and maybe leg 6 this would make sense for a TBC or NEL which you know we are due for.

I think the probability of NEL on episode 5 is incredibly high. Otherwise, the producers would have episodes 6 to 11 to elimiinate just 2 teams to get down from 6 to 4. Episodes 5 through 11(7 episodes total) must contain the total of all four non-elimination or TBC legs unless Hawaii counts as a leg, in which case it's only 6 episodes total containing three non-elimination or TBC legs.

Heres what I think is a different angle of our building, this one from August of 2006 and the previous one was from Sept of 2005.

 ;D  That's an easy one, puddin.  Plenty of dolphin near Matemo Island, Mozambique.

 :angel: We may have a tie in with the "boat" vidcap and the "dolphin" vidcap.

The boat could be part of the Dolphin Dhow sailing and dolphin watching adventures in Kenya   :groan:

BOINGO, your link for the Dolphin Dhow provides information on Zanzibar dhows: "Zanzibar dhows have sloping bows". Presumably one would find a Zanzibar dhow sailing between Zanzibar and other ports, so the dhow availability is not confined to Mombasa and the Kenya coast.

 :js:  Yep.  Was wondering how Tanzania could fit in to all this.  Well, now we have a possible Mozambique/Kenya/Tanzania connection.  Dolphins, boats, buildings.....  :-\  the answer lies in there somewhere.   :snicker:

Everybody wears red; it's their power color (tell the guy in the middle I want my beach towel back  ;D). This is a language distribution map; it would follow that it's a population map as well (but it wouldn't include "tourist" villages, and who's to say that producers didn't truck some people to a remote location). General info here.

I think you're on the right track, Puddin. Tashi Tagg (who used to recap TAR, maybe still does) published this poster's Tanzania trip, complete with photos of Maasai men on the beach and a Stone town beauty salon (henna and hair plating are common, it seems).

 :-\  ...oooh, I may be drunk...all I came up with for Zanzibar was this photo of a "Heena and Wanja painting" place.   :groan:

ETA: According to this Swahili-English Dictionary, "Haiba" = appearance or beauty or character or charm or grace or personality or good reputation.   :whever:

Following up on PUDDIN's lead about StoneTown, I have this:

Stone Town

It may not have a particularly romantic name, but Stone Town is the old city and cultural heart of Zanzibar, little changed in the last 200 years. It is a place of winding alleys, bustling bazaars, mosques and grand Arab houses whose original owners vied with each other over the extravagance of their dwellings. This one-upmanship is particularly reflected in the brass-studded, carved, wooden doors - there are more than 500 different examples of this handiwork. You can spend many idle hours and days just wandering through the fascinating labyrinth of narrow streets and alleyways.

Stone Town was recently and deservedly declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. More information can be found at the UNESCO website.
 
Most of the houses that can be seen today were built in the 19th century when Zanzibar was one of the most important trading centres in the Indian Ocean region. The coraline rock of Zanzibar was a good building material, but it is also easily eroded.

The most visible element of Zanzibar's cultural heritage is represented in some of the outstanding architectural and historical landmarks of the Stone Town.

These include the Portuguese Fort (also known as "Old fort"), the House of Wonders (Beit-el-ajaib), the Palace Museum (formerly known as the Sultan's Palace), the Ithnaasheri Dispensary, Balnara Mosque, Bharmal building, the High Court, the Peace Memorial Museum, the Roman Catholic Cathedral and the Anglican Cathedral....quite a few isn't it!

The High Court, the Peace Memorial Museum, Bharmal Building and Stone Town's unique market, reflect British Colonial taste blended with Arabic architecture.

The intricately carved balconies of the Ithnaasheri dispensary reflect Colonial India's architecture while the Roman Catholic Cathedral reflects European Architecture.

The Anglican Cathedral has a combination of elements of Gothic and Islamic architecture.


This area would provide numerous opportunities for episode 5 tasks.
