Close, but I don't think so Peach. All over Europe they have these machines, which sell parking stubs indicating a specific time that you paid paid until. You stick it inside the windshield of your car when you park on the STREET. It is the European equivalent of hundreds of parking meters. In the U.S. such machines are indeed found in many unattended parking lots and the meter maid will get you if you don't have a valid stub inside your windshield when they come.

Peach stated

but we think TARA 2 may have been in NZ around July 14 so Frankfurt is really prob TAR 12?

My timeline of New Zealand indicated July 10 for Rotorua. A photo labeled "Amazing Race Korea" was labeled July 12 - 16. ARA2 was not in New Zealand on July 14. They were either in Korea or leaving there on their way to Europe.

 :hides Sorry, but I want to throw a monkey wrench into the works. Compare the backpacks with the video Puddin found. I think the team might be Paula/Natasha.

Your so smart Slowhatch!! Yes I just watched the video and it sure does look like them. Even the tall ones black leggin's are the same style and then the shorter one has the same color hair. If you all agree I can move this over to the Asia spoilers  :pull

I agree darn it all...looks just like them.

But the problem is I thought we had TARA 2 in NZ on those dates? I'm at work --can someone double check this pretty please?

Just a reminder that some of the conversations in this thread might not seem in synch due to the fact that I moved what we thought might beTAR12 spoilers over to this thread after it was pointed out that we were on the wrong track and they were indeed TAR2 sightings.

our detectives rock :jam:

FLIGHT INFO

From SEOUL/Inchon Korea to Frankfurt departing the afternoon or evening of Saturday July 14, here are two logical flight possibilities:

LH713 nonstop departs Seoul 1315 arrives Frankfurt 1835. Remember that the plane is moving with the sun.

One of the last ones is KE895 departs Seoul 1905 arrives Shanghai (PVG) 2000, then connects with MU0219 departing PVG 2335 arriving FRA 0505 July15.

There are several combinations in between and a few combinations just after 1905.


From Frankfurt to Prague, there are about 10 flights each day. The last is LH3266 departing at 2005 arriving at 2305 (plus a one hour time change).
The first is LH3258 departing 2010 arriving 2110.

PEACH, just for you I am going to reconstruct the ARA2 timeline which apparently has disappeared:

July 5 - ARA2 begins in Singapore

July 6 - Manila

July 10 - Rotorua

July 12 - Korea

July 15 - Frankfurt

July 17 - Prague

July 19 - Budapest

later in the race - Tokyo

It's now crunch time, since there are only 3 days to go until teams are introduced in the special ARA2 Team Introduction show that begins ARA2 on AXN. I want to see if we can push to get some approximation of a complete route in the next 3 days.

This is only SPECULATION, since we have nothing to go on other than Tokyo is in the mix. I think ARA2 after Budapest might go something like this:

July 21 REST DAY

July 22 Budapest to India (choice of Mumbai, Calcutta, Chennai, Delhi)

July 24 India to China (choice of Beijing, Shanghai, Xian, Hong Kong, Macau)

July 26 REST DAY

July 27 China to Tokyo

July 29 Tokyo to FINAL CITY

My best guess on where the FINAL CITY will be is in THAILAND, although probably not BAGKOK. I am going to guess CHIANG MAI or PHUKET.

What is your best thinking on what is going to happen to the ARA2 route in July after July 20 in Budapest?

Thanks for resurrecting this apskip! I'll be wishing TARA2 had figured out a way for us all to watch!

We also have this post from puddin: http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,12553.msg234299.html#msg234299

So I am voting for salt farms in Samutsakorn Thailand.

But for some reason I was thinking cabio said something about Singapore as end city too? But that was long ago and far away... :lol:

I hate to admit it but I might just wait TARA2 out until our TAR12 is over. Who would have known that CBS loves us  :hearts:?

Peach, you make an excellent point. I had been thinking about the Bangkok reference when I selected Thailand as my choice for FINAL COUNTRY, but i lost sight of it when I selected far north and far south points. that won't do, so I am revising my selections. Here are 8 tourist attractions within 125 miles of Bangkok, each of which comes with a 5 star rating:

Ayatthaya
BangPa In Palace
Chainat
Lopburi
Nonth-buri
Pak Chang
Saraburi
Singburi

I am now substituting these and withdrwing Chiang Mai and Phuket as proposed locations for the Finish Line of ARA2.

I personally am rooting for Ayatthaya. It is the closest to Bangkok of any on this list. Also, I visited there in 1978 as a stopover on the way to Chiang Mai. It was very impressive then and I am sure that it still is.

There is news from Indonesia reported at SUCKS that Kinar stated the length of ARA2 was 24 days. Let's see how my latest Timeline hold up. July 29 - July 5 = 24 days. Just lucky I guess. Let's summarize it in one place since it is now in 2 segments:

July 5 - ARA2 begins in Singapore

July 6 - Manila

July 10 - Rotorua

July 12 - Korea

July 15 - Frankfurt

July 17 - Prague

July 19 - Budapest

July 21 REST DAY

July 22 Budapest to India (choice of Mumbai, Calcutta, Chennai, Delhi)

July 24 India to China (choice of Beijing, Shanghai, Xian, Hong Kong, Macau)

July 26 REST DAY

July 27 China to Tokyo

July 29 Tokyo to FINAL CITY

July 29 Bangkok to one of these relatively close places in central Thailand for the FINISH LINE:
Ayatthaya
BangPa In Palace
Chainat
Lopburi
Nonth-buri
Pak Chang
Saraburi
Singburi

Of the above, the India, China and all of Thailand are speculative. All the earlier legs plus Tokyo are confirmed, although the timing of Tokyo is not.

Hi, people of RFF!  :waves:  Been a lurker for a pretty long time and all I can say is that you guys are awesome. (=

Anyway, with regards to the TARA2, I think I have identified the starting line for TARA2.  :yess:

Haha. Based on a screencap from one of the promo trailers, I've obtained this image:



..And I found this image from Flickr,





With some aid from Flickr and also Google Earth based on some of my own local knowledge (hehe.), the building has now be identified as the "Asian Civilisation Museum". Based on the promo, "cross-refrenced"  to Google Earth, it should be right and should be at the back of the musuem compound, with the grass patch and the mysterious black column structure thing there, where the view of Boat Quay can be seen. (this was seen in the background as Allan was giving the "intro speech" to the teams at the starting line.

Additionally, I think everyone knows Suntec City will be featured again. (3 times... TAR3, TARA1, TARA2.) This time, however, it seems there's a pretty decent task of pulling yourself from one building to another. Kinda like TAR5's. Well, I hope I've been of help and once again, good job everyone.  :wohoo:
