It never fails: I spend a few hours away installing Vista on a remodeled box and I miss all the fun.  :lol:
Anyway, my contribution for the evening is Dourtenga, southeast of Ouagadougou.

I know this belongs ultimately in MAPS  MAPS  MAPS, but right now I think here is best. I have discovered following up on Slowhatch's excellent find that Dourtenga department is part of Koulpelogo province. For maps of where that is in Burkina Faso see Koulpelogo Province

Oh NICE! That also goes with our "Co-OP" site's map! 

 (JEEZ--guess I need to get cracking in Maps and stop looking for highwire acts!)

Yibeogo kibaare?  :mornin: Two things to throw out before I scoot off to work:
  • BF doesn't seem like a self-drive kind of place; unless the tasks are in Ouaga (or a cab ride away), then bus rides will have to be arranged.
  • They could be Tuareg, but they could also be Bella, former slaves who have taken on Tamahaq language, clothes, etc.

Sorry about the weekend work--for once, I'm off! :yess:

Or charter planes maybe as roads can be impassable in the rainy season.

Just 2 weeks after TAR's visit--the TAR curse struck BF with severe flooding displacing over 93,000 people and causing tremendous losses of homes and crops.  The area is still devastated today.

If we are looking for Bosnia, we will find it very close to Dubrovnik. I recall in 30 years ago going back to Dubrovnik from northern Yugoslavia via Zagreb. The train went through Sarajevo at 3am. It was a beautiful place then and for the 1984 Winter Olympics and I regretted that I never saw it close up. Sarajevo is the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina and is only 60 miles form Dubrovnik.

Did the crews have some time to kill in Split? again it may be scouting.

I saw the picture labled as ''Bosnia''.. It might be but I'm somehow not sure.. But as in Bosnia there is many hils and vegetation looked like it.. I say there is a 80% chance that it is in fact Bosnia... ANd anyway its 100% sure that they went into Bosnia because to go from Split and Dubrovnik you have to pass through Bosnian territory in a city called Neum.. If you have any questions just email me

Peach, I would like to take exception with the location of the circle you have drawn on your Co-op Map
http:// TAR 12 BF co-op.jpg The circle there was done by somebody else and is centered on Morbihan. The circle we need is centered on Dourtenga and that requires it to be centered on the "e" of Volta Blanche.

That's the map for the co-op--not us! I think the thing is we have the screencap for the co-op? Are we 100% sure we are going to Dourtenga and not this co-op? They seem to be "relatively" close to each other.

Let me know and I'll figure it out when I update the MAPS section though, okay?

Peach may I say that if you look back onto Page 5 then look to the photo of a turtle shaped building, well you may have already gone through this lol, but at the bottom of the photo it says Bad Boy Building so I looked it up and it came up with this:

A self-confessed architectural "bad boy" early in his career, Italy's Renzo Piano shows few signs of mellowing with age.

The son of a builder, he vaulted to fame with bold designs like Paris's Pompidou Center and recently made his mark on Rome with a performing arts complex known as "the three turtles" because of its rounded, shell-like shape.

And it is in Rome, Italy and we are talking about Florence, Italy

on second thought those mills are probably a dime a dozen
But how many have broken vanes like that? We'd need some luck, but we might be able to find it.
As for the far-leaping, that looked a little hard on the heels.  :lol: An "amazing" version will probably be arranged.

That's the kind of creative thinking we are talking about! But unfortunately in this case I think "bad boy building" was just Boingo's pet name for it?

And i think we definitely have it here as the coffee house in Boboli Gardens--check out the video here...

That house gable pointed roof is an unusual form for a Dutch windmill so we may be able to find that by a regional style?

And I JUST cancelled my trip there scheduled for in two weeks ---or I could be tilting at windmills too! :lol:

Boingo  makes me laugh! :lol: :kissy:

Have at it. A searchable database with pictures of each one, google mapping, etc. The bad news: there are thousands of "molens."  :groan:

And last but not least the dude that peach deemed Yogi!!
This is the one that we were all working on, Boingo, Slowhatch, Chateau, peachs and we we're leaning towards --

Bekal fort, Kasaragod Kerala, India
More on this-- it just maybe old? I forgot that Amazing Race went to Ernakulam, Kerala & Alleppey, Kerala so it just might be another personal picture, just thought I'd mention that   :angel:
