EP5: "You Need To Watch Your Jokes, Guy."
« on: March 04, 2007, 06:28:26 PM »
UshuaiaSighter posted (11/28/06 )@ sucks at 5:13 pm.
*Hi to all. I'm doing a trip through South America and I'm now in Ushuaia, Argentina (southern most city in the world).
*About an hour ago Bill and Joe (Team Guido) entered an internet cafe/calling center (locutorio) with a cameraman and a soundman. They wanted to call a few airlines (Aerolinas Argentinas and South African Airlines). I guess they are heading to South Africa then.Sorry for the quality of the pictures. I was in a rush and the cameraman was intimidating! "

--------------------------------------------------
*Hi, me again. A few more informations:
The locutario where the pics were taken was at the corner of 25 de Mayo and San Martin in Ushuaia. It was taken at about 19h15 Ushuaia time (17h15 NYC). The sunset here is at about 22h15.
*The girl is definetly not Emily. Sorry guys. It was just a Fern.
It still takes a long time to get to Antarctica from Ushuaia, by boat at least (a few days). So if they went to Antartica, it was by small planes.
I spent the last 2 days around town and haven't seen anybody else. I also went to most of the landmarks in Ushuaia yesterday evening to try to find a pitstop, detour or roadblock, without sucess. And Ushuaia is not a big town, so I guess they just stopped in town to call. The others might have gone straight to the airport. Bill and Joe probably arrived by bus because the buses around here drop you at the corner of Maipu and 25 de Mayo. The locutario they were in would be the first you see after being dropped from a bus. So I guess the pitstop was eather in the Tierra del Fuego Natl Park, or maybe at Estancia Harberton (the biggest and oldest estancia in Tierra del Fuego, typical TAR pitstop).

*I think they already had their plane tickets out of Ushuaia to probably Buenos Aires. It's a pain to get out of Ushuaia by eather plane or bus these days. You have to book way in advance. So it would be impossible for 8-9 teams + crew to just hop on a plane. So I guess the tickets were handed to them, with 2 or 3 departing times.

*Finally, the guidos didn't look like they were in a really good mood. They had their serious face. It doesn't really indicate anything but they might have been at the middle or the back of the pack.

Maputo/Mozambique, Africa ( dates? )

  nkatekwan posted at Twop's
Some friends of mine are Peace Corps vols in Mozambique and claim that the race came through Maputo sometime between Thanksgiving and December 7. One of the destinations was the old Portuguese fort (pictured here: http://tabisite.com/gallery_af/mozambique/91af265.jpg). Unfortunately they didn't have any other details. This does seem consistent with the spoilers that teams were on their way to South Africa, as Maputo is usually reached through Joburg

  Maputo: Portuguese fort on East Timor street

Slowhatch finds a blog entry posted on Dec 8th
* I think this is the blog of the Peace Corps workers mentioned earlier. It's only a couple of lines near the bottom of the page:
**p.s. They just filmed the amazing race in Maputo!! I donīt know any details but I have been to the fort where the pit stop was.

So I'm guessing this is the Mozambique episode? Since next week they end up in Ushuaia.

Probably Marly, they are due for a 36 hour pitstop. Watching the insider clips the teams are complaining about lack of sleep as well as all the driving.
Leaving South America finally..thank God huh?

GMAN said "Hey, South America ain't all bad.  I lived there for 12 years!"

I have good news for CHOCOHOLIC: It's only 4 episodes in South America since episode 4 will be a combined PUNTA ARENA/USHUAIA leg and then teams will get a 36 hour extended rest stop before flying out to Africa.

So any guesses on what the tasks they would do here? I'm thinking it could be related to the fish in the opening sequence, (although no one has really ascertained that the fish came from here), so maybe a market task? And maybe also a task in the Fort?

I hope the Mozambique leg won't disappoint.

I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it.

Maybe 3/4 dozen clams on the half-shell with fresh lemon juice and some good hot sauce?

HAKUSHU8, a task at the pitstop is not impossible, but I don't think it's likely.

Quote from: UshuaiaSighter
It was taken at about 19h15 Ushuaia time
It doesn't take that long to get from Redonda to downtown, so unless there's some intermediate task it looks like an extended pitstop.

Does anyone know about the cultural differences and customs in that part of the world?  Therefore, someone may have to watch their Ps & Qs

I will post the intro-flash caps here of what we are guessing are all from East Africa but I am not sure which ones belong where but we should know more tonight after the show airs and I will edit out what pictures don't belong here but probably in upcoming future episodes....i.e. EP6 etc ...


Maputo, Mozambique/ Kenya ??/Tanzania?? /East Africa

14. Maputo Airport
24. mwooden: Maputo: Portuguese Maputo's Fort - Mozambique
32. Maputo City skyline

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

PUDDIN, I recall seeing fish exactly like #19 in a Dar-Es-Salaam fish market photo that GEORGIA PEACH posted.

I also remember seeing the equivalent of the wall in #29 in Zanzibar photos that were posted, probably also by GEORGIA PEACH.

Well, we don't need to use the bonus question "Who said the title line" since it was clearly stated in the preview of next week.
