Thanks, Puddin. So it's Don that "falls under the spell." and it looks like a train ride from Ouaga to...somewhere. I haven't found any pictures yet of the inside of the train station.

No, Airwise does not say that AF732 flew on July 13. Unfortunately right now it is not saying that AF730 flew on July 13 either.

You're right, it's not showing now.  When I checked on October 6th they had it (actual Airwise screen capture shown below).  I think they have an evolving data base that is not 100% oriented toward historical accuracy.  I have run into reproducibility problems with them before.

My bet goes with Donald and Nicolas on flight 732 with the missionaries.  I see Peach likes the missionary position too.

Where is your evidence for teams arriving in Dubrovnik on July 18th?  I bet that TK and Rachel arrive there on the 19th as Eilan has reported.

The Goths and the "tight warm up pants girls" were on that flight too...

Train to Bobodioulasso maybe?

Abijhan is too far--it is about a 23-24 train ride...

Why do they go to Ouaga? Why don't you all think they do something there?

Nope. I pointed out earlier in this thread that the Na Ka Boom statue is at the Railroad station. That is likely to be the destination in the clue that teams receive in Amsterdam as they leave the pitstop. Peach's information on the paucity of where the railroad goes in the best of times and how it is mostly out of business is certain to be accurate, so there will be no train rides for AR12 teams in my estimation.

But they do appear to be standing in line at what looks like a ticket window...and we do see a train...

I am still unable to find any info on buying tickets for outside the country at all...

But trains to Bobodioulasso I think are possible?  But why they would want to go there I don't know...

That could have happened, but if so it will be really difficult to fit in Vilnius, Jaisalmer(or somewhere else in northern India), Osaka, and Taipei, then arrive in Girdwood in time for July 29. The best way for that to happen is if teams arrive into Dubrovnik on July 18 and depart from there July 20. My evidence is pure logistical logic which more often than not proves to give the right answer.

I certainly looks like a train ride. The editing in the promo would have us think they arrive in Ouaga by train, but I agree with the others that's unlikely. Maybe just a trip to the "suburbs." It would have been no trouble for the producers to fly people/livestock in from any part of the country for a milk-and-mask show.

There is a Mossi village near the capital city on the road to Bobo-Diaoulasso. Here is a photo of it:  Mossi Village in Ouagadougou If this turns out to be a site for AR12 tasks, teams will be heading west out of Ouagadougou rather than east as I have predicted. The train line also runs there.

From Bobo-Diaoulasso there are 3 basic alternatives to reach international air transportation:
1. return to Ouagadougou
2. Go about 300 miles south to Abidjan, Ivory Coast, which is a much bigger airport hub than OUA. The flights from there to CDG have been detailed in the Locations thread.
3. Bobo-Diaoulasso itself has a small airport that presumably has flights to OUA and ABJ.

Here is some more information on railroads in Burkina Faso. Some of this may already have been presented by Peach, I don't remember.

The 510-km (317-mi) Mossi Railroad in Burkina Faso is part of the line that begins at Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, and ends in Niger, some 1,145 km (710 mi) away. The line serves the towns of Banfora, Bobo-Dioulasso, Koudougou, and Ouagadougou; 25–40% of the railway traffic passes through Burkina Faso, where total rail trackage was 622 km (386 mi) in 2002. Planning for the construction of a railroad from Ouagadougou to Tambao (353 km/219 mi) to exploit the mineral deposits in the area was begun in October 1981. Constructed by volunteers, the line reached Donsin, 33 km (21 mi) from Ouagadougou, in 1987, and the second stage to Kaya (77 km/48 mi) was completed by 1991.

Note that the above information is not consistent. If there is only 386 miles of track, the 317 miles which gets from the western border of Burkina Faso to Ouagadougou will only leave 69 miles. That will not come anywehere close to reaching the border with Niger to the east

EDITOR's NOTE - Further research indicates that the lien ends in Kaya north of Ouagadougou and does not get anywhere near Niger. Also, that research has turned up this statement from the website of thte holding company that owns SITARAIL:

Railway operations has been severely disrupted due to the current political unrest in the Ivory Coast. Various attempts have been made to restore the operations but these proved extremely difficult. The border between Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso has also been closed at different intervals depending on stability in the Ivory Coast.

The company is confident that operations could return to normal as soon as peace has returned to the region.

This totally supports the information PEACH received and presented, but does not mean that some rail services cannot operate within Burkina Faso. The question is where would AR12 want to go?
