There is a bus from Inhambane to Maputo but even the locals don't recommend it.

haha, I'm glad I finally got to contribute something actually worth it  :lol:

 :yourock:

puddin--where are these new pics coming from? Have I missed another promo? Is it posted?

Gosh--and just think--I was bored to tears 30 minutes ago! :lol:

Bus blog!

Quote
The bus was already packed when we got in, and we went up toward the front. There were 2 open seats but a guy said that they were saved. We stood for a while and eventually just sat down in those seats. Thank God we did that because we would have had the most uncomfortable ride of our lives. Even in the seats it was uncomfortable. We were sitting for the entire ride. I slept and kept sitting while Ang got up at every stop we made. It was a long, long day with sweaty, smelly armpits in my face from those who were standing in the aisle right next to me, brushing up against me at every bump (and there were MANY bumps because the roads were horrible). But eventually we made it to Inhambane and we got there ahead of schedule even!

Is there video yet?? Knew I should have been watching that game!

INHAMBANE 

The city of Inhambane is one of the oldest settlements in southern Africa. In 1534, Portuguese traders established a permanent presence and a trading post there and their influence can be seen in the architecture and layout of the city. There are many old buildings in the city, in varying states of repair. The market, which is well-organised and clean, is well worth a visit, and is good value particularly for locally produced woven straw baskets and mats.

Those heading directly for the beaches should drive down the main street of the town. At the roundabout, take the right hand turn (near the Clube Ferroviário) and continue straight out along this road. The road narrows as you leave the town and from here, it is about 21km to the fork for Ponta da Barra and Tofo beach.

peace - we must have been thinking the same cause as soon as I read about inhambane I went looking for market pictures and then I also googled "Inhambane - Manicure" and something came up that looked oddly like the manicure kit Charla was holding.

 :wohoo: Michael!

I know puddin--I can't find a tourist info about a fort but the pics are tagged Inhambane so stuck them in...who knows if half the tourists actually know where they were? Sometimes I have trouble when I'm travelling too! :lol:

This is actually very sad--(the TAR curse again??) because this is the area that was hit very hard by the Cyclone and flooding in Feb/March...

I still think the pictures prove that the manicure task is back in Maputo.

yeah, that's why I didn't post those pictures because I'm pretty sure I read about the pictures proving it is in Maputo.

Good find with the rats!

Great Rattie pictures! Why do I think like Joyce that these are actually kind of cute?? Normally I hate rodents!

I think the manicure task has been definitely ID'd by puddin with perfect photo matches as being in Maputo!

Wish they didn't have to go back there though--I want our guys to get some beach time--maybe swim with the dolphins or the whale sharks!

So I have the game on now--I must really want to see that preview!

Yes, of course they can get to Inhambane in plenty of time to have a Dec. 1 early morning ratfest.

It depends on if they want to use the Yield I guess?
Do you all think they all take the same flight? It looks like the trucks racing are the top 3 teams E/D, Chas, T/I only to find out they have a HoursOfOperation  :lol:

haha, I'm not sure if they all take the same flight, but it must suck for the front teams if they DO get on an earlier flight only to discover that all the other teams are going to catch up.

hehe, thank god for HOH.

Of course, for all we know all the teams can be there at the same time and we just didn't see them in that new preview.

My Inhambane fort pics are definitely in Maputo so will pull them from Inhambane...

Thanks for the video! I can only watch so much non-Duke basketball! :lol:

I think they take trucks to Inhambame.

I'm no apskip but I did find a flight--once a week-- back from Inhambane to Maputo but looks to me that it is only on Sunday (or maybe every day except Sunday?)  --would be nice if they could fly one way anyhow...

And some road pics...

Since there has been no mention of "the latest castoff from The Amazing Race" as a guest on TES Monday, it sure seems to be that we will have our first NEL. 

If it is indeed an NEL will TPTB:

1. Come up with some new scheme?

2. Repeat TAR10's come in first in the next leg or be eliminated?

3..Resort back to surrender all your clothing and money?

4..Resort back, back to just surrender all your money?

5. Resont back, back, back to nothing happening to the last place team?

And since the boot list has Ian and Teri as the next team to go will they come in last this ep and be eliminated in the next, or will Schmirma come in last but come in first next week with Ian and Teri last.

RNO interviewed Bertram Van Munster 3/7/2007 and this is what he says about NEL:

RNO: The penalty for non-elimination has changed. It used to be nothing, then taking a team’s money, then money and possessions, then in the most recent race it changed to a time penalty. Do you have the penalty balance right now?

Van Munster: Yes, I think we have it right. I think it was right before, too. I thought it was fun when the Bowling Moms had no money in Egypt and they went to the American tour bus and rounded up more money than we would have given them. I think it's a lot of fun and that keeps people on their toes.
