A collection of BF maps, including rain and railroad maps. A general map source here for Africa and Central America; there's a lot of tools for mapmakers but also some free general stuff.

A su servicio: look here, just to the left of Ouaga along the rail line. GE, for some strange reason, put Bingo up in the Northwest, near Goursi.
An interesting site I came across while looking for maps: admin regions, links to maps, dialing codes and time zones, etc.

Slowhatch, your latest link HERE allowed me to calculate the distance of 35 km (20 miles) from the center of Ouagadougou to Bingo. It will of course be the same distance back. Also, by inference the probability that taxis can be arranged to take the teams back to Ouagadougou late on July 14 if they need to get to the airport is high so close to the capital. There will be roads that were carefully not shown on any screencaps or video.

This isn't a map, but it's a 4 minute video of Dubrovnik. The ends of the zipline are shown briefly once of twice.

A good map I stumbled upon for the route from Ouagadougou to Bingo...

http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/ams/west_africa/txu-oclc-6595921-nd30-15.jpg

Managed to match up the train 'station' (149'41"W 1217'52"N) and the town of Bingo (149'55"W 1218'00"N) on Google Earth with this map, but I'm still a little helpless with the rest of the locations. Looks like the building at 149'59"W 1218'11"N is the only one long enough to be the school (the trees kind of match up), so I'm thinking the milking was on the south side of the track and the Pit Stop on the north side?

Hmm, and the official site of Bingo. Can't get much out of their map though.

Trying to figure out where Bouda-Pelegtanga belongs!

Wikipedia claims it's in the town of Yako, and on the map we used last week, there's a village just to the southeast of Yako (the yellow patch right at the top, centre of the map) labelled Pelretanga. Is this it?

That was a bear to find, wasn't it? And thank you SO much for coming to help--I couldn't find it either at first!

Let's hope that this is a case of great minds think alike because Slowhatch and I also came to the same conclusion. Maybe Bouda means village or something in Moore (that e needs an acute but I don't know how  :( )?  Anyway, I updated the Episode Map thread upstream HERE last night--please look over and make sure it is right, okay?

Thanks again for the help--I needed it!

It's good for more than Italy  :cmas16. If you go to the sponsor page, Mustofa and Ali's cap shop (I don't know  :cmas5), it links to maps for most other countries, as well as specialized search engines, kana/indic tools, etc.

Mumbai: a general city map here, a clickable map here, and Yahoo India does a decent job (it turns out there are two bharatgas dist. in Colaba--one very near DKI).
