Thanks to a shot from Puddin I can fix a location for this shot.  And just guessing by general illuminance it looks to be at about noon.

I'm pretty sure that the tower opens at 11AM.

No Michael...I thought we decided that the RB comes first right? that would be the bunch up and thats where the BQ's might wheel and deal and perhaps tell E/D that they will run like they are in last place to theYield hoping that E/D get to it before the other 2 teams and offer them a bribe of some sort?
Chateau has a time estimate at E/D at the noodles/detour around 2ish leaving plenty of morning 11 ish for the RB.
Teams should not be bunched at the tower HofO ..TPTB probably set up special time for them to enter the tower because of tourists and such and that very well could be before the tower opens to the public ... in the morning.

Thats my bamboo and I'm sticking a noodle to it  :knuckles:

Chateau - if you think BQs get yielded how do you explain the "One time is shocked to discover that they are a victim of a surprising deal between the Beauty Queens and a certain other team" webclue?

Michael,  I just thought this:  BQ & whoever make a deal that BQ is not yielded.  Then BQ is SHOCKED that they are yielded.  It just dawned on me that CBS doesn't state which team is shocked and want to mislead us by telling us that the deal was between the BQ and another team.  So, any team except the "other" team would be shocked at being yielded.

Just another idea to confuse everyone.  My mind is reeling trying to figure this episode out from the clues.

Yeah puddin, that's what I said, the bunch happens at the RB, and that's how C/M and D/K and probably E/D all end up at the detour around the same time:

Puddin, you don't have bamboo   :o

So I think, Michael D, based on the noonish time for the BQ jump, you may well be right about all teams getting bunched at the Tower.  I am also trying to account for the shower that Charla gets as she walks along the top of the Tower.  Weather underground has some rain starting at 12:30 on December 13th in Macau.  Dustin looks dry as she looks on.

I have not been able to make a definitive decisions about the other shots.  Dry versus rain.  I know someone posted some ideas about this.  How sure are they.  I guess I'm looking for some kind of error bars on them.  I can't get the videos top play here.  So I just go by the stills.

I have a feeling E/D are at the Noodles after BQ finish which is the same time Mirna goes off on Charla.  In the videos use the pause a lot and the table in the back of BQ  & C/M looks very clean.  In Real you can watch full screen and pause and get a good look at the table.

This could mean 2 things.  There are only 3 tables (Remember TAR 10 where BQ bypassed the entrance to the task and when they did get there they had to wait cause only 3 teams could do the task at the same time?) and the clean table is E/D were there, they are done and station cleaned.  Or it means they have not started yet.  But if there are 4 stations then E/D, C/M & BQ could all be doing it at the same time and E/D are off camera.  Also, with 4 stations then E/D still might not be there yet.

Sorry, my mind is working in overdrive.

if there is a first come first serve detour this episode would exactly mirror episode 11 of TAR10..

Yield > RB > Detour (first come first serve) > Pit Stop > Nel (?)

This shot was taken here between 3:20 and 4:40 pm (assumes December 13th)

Thanks to Micheal for the black&white shot. It helps with the locating.

Go figure  :snicker:
makz3d  if you read back we already discussed that E/D's station is out of sight in the Phil preview and their station is near the front.. by the windows. I'm not posting the pictures again....look back a few pages.

This shot was taken here between 8:30 and 9:30 am (assumes Decmber 13th)

The homes across the lake are very brightly illuminated.  This would be consistent with some early morning sun being directly reflected from them back to the Toys R Us location.

Thanks to Puddin for the locator shot.  I would have never been able to "see" and know how to locate the homes in the BQ shot.

well we still have to consider how many noodles they have to bamboo and also where the Mokes come into play  ???

eta: it would be funny of they had to deliver the Noodles with the Moke.

It's possible; at first I thought Charla might be holding a take-out plate, but thanks to the hi-res it looks like just a large map or stack of papers (that's not to say that the noodles might be in the moke).

If the noodles detour involves making more than one noodle thingy.. couldnt that mean that C/M are ahead of D/K.. Charla and Mirna could be beginning their second or third noodle whilst Dustin and Kandice finish their first  :jam:

Hi everyone :)
I was bored and decided to search for the elusive 'yellow brick road' in the C/M pic.  Couldn't find anything on google earth but here's a clear picture of a 'wavy road':


If you search "portuguese architecture in Macau" in google images, there are quite a few pictures showing patterened roads. 

Neobie you mentioned that you can't see a run down place like the one in the C/M photo near a sightseeing place.  Vancouver's downtown east side is in the middle of the town and several tourist attractions is one of the worst places in North America for drugs/ poverty. 
A good landing is one you can walk away from.  A great landing is one where they can use the plane again.

I wonder if this might be where they go right after they get off the Ferry Terminal and then take one of these to the RB tower?

Oh, and did E/D just get here, I can't tell by their table ??? and do we think that C/M or D/K are there off camera in this shot?
