Thanks for the welcome :)

If Croatia's on the 19th, then either there's an extra stop (Lithuania? an extra leg in Italy?) or an extended pit-stop (or I goofed). FWIW, I vote extended pit-stop or extra Italy leg.

The controversy that seems centered around the Blondes seems like it could be the dreaded U-turn coming!!   :o :o

Staying in Burkina (after a pit stop) would suggest tasks the next day (it's light out) & possibly missing the only flight out of Oug...back to Europe.  (One flight per day?)

Would this make an uber bunch (following the tasks) & long hours (or an overnight) at the airport likely?  Also making the U turn (or whatever dastardly deed the blondes did) not a big deal to the affected team.

We've Really Burned Bridges, For Sure

Not really sure what this episode will be about or where it will take place, but I'm thinking it has to deal with the new wrinkle in the race next week between Shana/Jennifer and Jason/Lorena. It looks like one of them could have said it?

since it's obvious that the blondes use the new twist next week could they possibly say the title for the episode afterwards, indicating that they survive this episode for sure? I know it's grasping at straws but oh well. (im not posting this because i want them to stay BTW since I know thats what you're all thinking, i dont even like them!  :dick )

Croatia is a country located in Southern Europe, it was a state of Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (later known as Yugoslavia) and Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia from 1918-1991.

ApprenticeFan, I usually give this advice to rookies, which you are not.  There is a rather large body of information in particular about Dubrovnik (because AR12 is probably not going to the rest of Croatia) including city maps and history and possible sightseeing other than the zipline and rowing and other tasks that we already know about in other threads, including MAPs! Maps! Maps!. Additional information is always appreciated, but you might want to find out exactly what is already on the other threads.

hound 109, I am not going to speculate on the U turn. On the other questions you raise:

That one flight is the evening of July 16. They cannot reasonably make the evening of July 15 with tasks and a 12 hour pitstop, so I predict a 24 hour pistop. There will still be an uberbunch because it's unavoidable with all teams flying on one flight) AF735 departed OUA at 2340 and arrived CDG at 0610 on July 17. That may be enough time to connect to the Air France 0720 flight to Florence.

Hi Everyone! Long time lurker here but I finally decided to join in the fun. Apskip, I'm not sure if thats enough time for the connection at CDG. Last year I was on a flight from L.A. to Florence, connecting to CDG and I have one a half hour to do it. The lines through CDG customs for non-EU members moves pretty slow. What makes it harder is that the CDG-Florence flights are typically smaller planes so they don't have their own gates (connected to the terminal). When the teams get to the gate, they get checked in then they have to take a bus that will take them to the plane that is sitting on the tarmac. I almost missed my flight last year ( I had to beg some folks ahead of the line if theres any way I can cut...I know its bad but I had to do it... I got there 2 minutes before the gates were closed.)  and I wouldn't be surprised if some of the teams misses their connection.

In one scene, TK and Jenny are speaking to someone else off camera.  TK: "You guys chose to do it." and Jenny: "You got to live with it."

To whom are they speaking: One guess Rachel and Nathan.  Or another team. (Shana and Jennifer?) But that is not Rachel with TK, nor is it one of the LA blondes. So it must be Nathan's Jenny.

So could this be the U-Turn?  Go back and repeat something?

Speed bump sounds like a Yield - something to slow the game down.

At the end could they catch the train from Bingo to Abidjan instead of back to O.? And catch a plane from there to CDG?

That would add another African country.  Have they been to Cote de'Ivoire before?

Yeah, from the previews, it appears Shana & Jennifer do something to really piss off Lorena & Jason. We'll see.

G-man --I read somewhere that the train from O to Abidjan took like 22-23 hours? So I don't think so....

Maybe it's just me, but Jennifer looks like she's missing a leg (yes, I know it's the camera angle - maybe I'm still intoxicated from her death stare to Nathan).  :lol: :lol: :lol:

The quick answer is NO. The could fly to Abidjan from Ouagadougou, but not take a train. Train service between Burkina Faso and the Ivory Coast has been terminated at the border due to all the disruption in Ivory Coast for many months.

That looks really good to me puddin--I think you have done it again!  :yess:

And they can pick up the same train line Bingo to Bobo so that's easy.

Now--we just need those chickens! (Aren't TPTB worried about Bird Flu?  :lol:)
