PUDDIN - thank you for your thorough input. However, I think that list is insanely long and you need to cut some of those countries and/or cities down.
Michael -- I suggest you close your eyes, spin ten times, come back to your monitor, point and pick one  :waves: .

That is highly illogical and insane!
Common now, let's move this discussion back to the more appropriate dissecting of the spoilers.

I'm bothered by the shot of Nathan in a red tank top looking out of the door on the train as it slows on arrival at some rural looking African desert village.  Any ideas, anyone?

Heck, back to the ball game.  C'me on wildcats!

god this episode is so confusing i need some guidance :(

Let me guide you Michael  :crazy :word:

These are some of the places mentioned throughout this thread, I concur that the teams will most likely go to one or more of the below places  :rotf: :carryon:
(sorry if some are repeated)

Ghana
Rural solidarity Burkina-Faso Morbihan.
Dourtenga
Questembert and La Gacilly
Koupela in Kourtenga province to Fada N'Gourma
Niamey
Borgo
Benin,
Côte d’Ivoire,
Mali,
Niger
and Togo
Bobodioulasso Bobo Dioulasso,
Timbuktu
Abidjan, Ivory Coast
Koudougou
Tambao
Donsin
Kaya
Gorom-Gorom
Markoye
Fada N'Gourma

Michael D, here is some guidance:

1. puddin does not need to turn on her spellcheck. She has spelled each of those places, several of which are difficult, perfectly. If she hadn't the geographic spelling police would be after her and, as you may have noticed, they are not.

2. There are several European places which will almost certainly not be the next place after Ouagadougou. They are Questembert and La Gacilly in France and Borgo in Italy.

3. Everything else on puddin's list is a legitimate African place that could possibly be the next place after Ouagadougou. My bet is now on Gorom-Gorom as the place for the TBC(although I do agree with Chateau that it could be Markoye) and Niamey Niger for the follow-on third pitstop.

well, you weren't online at the time so I thought I'd attempt to help puddin out, but I see she didn't need any..and spell check isn't one word just so you know

I'm not clear on what source has brought Diapaga into the fray. However, here are some facts about it:

Diapaga has an airport runway of 3937 feet(if that seems to be common it is exactly 1000 meters), sufficient for small planes but not for major international flights.

Diapaga is located about 50km south off the road from Fada N'Gourma to Niamey at Kantchari. It is the capital of Tapoa province, which is the easternmost extension of Burkina Faso. Diapaga is almost due south of Niamey.

No railroad runs toward Fada N'Gourma from Ouagadougou.

I like how they are all dented up...

But still a nice pick-up puddin!

The troube is -- there are camels and green taxis and green shutters everywhere!

Guess I'll go out on a limb and say that teams will go to ....



one of those places! :rotf:

I don't think there are camels everywhere? Although there are chickens everywhere..hee. So what exactly are we looking for anyway? Lack of something to do and I'm looking into the future, lol.
