ok we gotta start :tup:

Now what are the details :duno:

How do the teams get from Florence to Mumbai?

Looks like we have night time rides in the minicab, and daylight for the tasks.

Could JK be  coming out of a "take your own picture booth"? ID picture of some sort?

well in tar4 iirc they flew through milan and amsterdam to get to mumbai, perhaps the say way this time too?

You know how we see Christina at the cluebox when Ron is doing the Roadblock? So Ron perhaps already started when TK starts?

from my friend in Mumbai (who is very disappointed that he left Mumbai one day before we got the fort--and isn't sure he can make it back there by Sunday):

Quote
Here's my initial impression on the video:
 
TK & Rachel at the beginning look like they are with a wedding party.  The guy with the red turban looks dressed as a groom.
 
TK in the "reflect" picture...that looks like someone's apartment.  The ancestor picture on the wall, the low bed, the light switches.
 
Those are just some initial thoughts.
 
Right now I'm in Pune (Poona) east of Mumbai.
That goes along with patlini's impressions too, doesn't it?

GMAN, you are absolutely right. We have got to start reading threads which have the answers to the questions we want to ask so we don't ask questions which have already been answered!

On Dec. 13, post #173 of Timeline Speculation had the information below and it was repeated yesterday in another post on that thread:

July 22 FLIGHTS FROM FLORENCE TO MUMBAI

0650 0855 AF5049 FLR CDG
1030 2350 AF134 CDG BOM

0655 0840 LH4067 FLR FRA
1135 2350 AI126 FRA BOM

0715 0855 OS538 FLR VIE
1100 2320 OS35 VIE BOM

0735 0825 AZ1699 FLR MXP
1030 2310 AZ720 MXP BOM

0725 0925 KL3135 FLR AMS
1010 2350 NW34 AMS BOM

So, take your pick. Teams can fly through Paris, Frankfurt, Vienna, Milan or Amsterdam and get almost exactly the same arrival time in Mumbai.

that's what I thought about TK that he had probably just finished delivering the gas tank, he's doing namaste prob to the family

Puddin

that's what i was thinking too

http://www.mumbainet.com/template1.php?CID=25&SCID=12&GID=10

i was trying to figure out if they were in Mumbai on Tuesday and therefore if it was an auspicious one... 

but its been a bit crazy at home so I can't devote as much time to research like when I'm at work  :lol3:

:lol:, thats too funny!

What about the so called monsoons? I see nothing but nice sunny weather .. or is BVM BS'ing us again?


BVM:The monsoon in India is really going to kind of put a damper on things and kind of makes it very humorous.

Well he is now a known liar so I wouldn't put it past him to be lying, but is it possible for there to be two legs in India or no? I don't think a TBC leg could fit now that we know there is one more NEL and only four more episodes.

With the surprising NELeg I now think its not a TBC leg either Michael, just a regular elim  :ascared. I dunno? I was leaning towards 2 legs in India but I just don't know? I guess we wait?

Yeah -- to bad we aren't getting any more of those very informative previews we got for legs 1, 2, and 3  :'(

Do we know what day there were in Mumbai? Maybe somebody can look for an Indian weather archive and see if there were any monsoons  :duno:

As far as I can tell no monsoons the week of July 22, then the monsoons started up again on July 27th. I'll have to find that link again :pull

re: monsoons I have a list of rainfall for that week somewhere, but i was concentrating more on south

also call out to niece, but i think she is in gujarat with mother/sister-in-law at the moment and the village is incommunicado

looks like tasks are on Monday 23rd, so not so sure about the auspicious Tuesday hmmm (for the elephant task)  but I think the Siddhivinayak temple is most likely

 :waves:

I don't know if this will help, but you can go to this link, scroll down a bit and put in any date for a detailed history for Mumbai, India. You can go to any city and get a history.

Check out July 23rd 11.30pm

http://www.wunderground.com/history/airport/VABB/2007/7/23/DailyHistory.html

rain.

not really a monsoon though   :lol3:

however it is the only mention of "water" I see from the 22nd - 24th

more information on the siddhivinayak temple, Tuesdays seem to be a popular day.

http://www.siddhivinayak.org/dailyaartischedule.htm

patlini, we really don't know for sure, but the odds are that Florence was a 12 hour pitstop but not 36 hours. That allows teams time to get to Florence International Airport and set up flight arrangements departing  between 0650 and 0735 through Paris, Frankfurt, MIlan, Amsterdam or Vienna to get to Mumbai between 2310 and 2350.

On the weather charts you provided, the July 23 1130pm brief event was listed as "light drizzle". On July 24 the 530am brief event was also "light drizzle. That doesn't sound like a monsoon to me.

At 1130pm on July 23, I expect that teams would be near the completion of a 12 hour pitstop in the Mumbai metropolitan area, so even if there was a small amount of rain the effect on them would have been negligible. I expect that their next task would be going to the Mumbai International Airport to fly to Japan or Taiwan.

Your NFL coverage map for Week 17 is now up.

Most everyone in the Eastern and Central Time Zones will see Pittsburgh at Baltimore. The New York/Northern New Jersey area along with the Chiefs home region will get the insignificant Chiefs-Jets game. Expect to see TAR around 8:25 p.m. or so.

Thanks for the map of the games, I had been checking but hadn't tonight. Since the Ravens/Steelers time was changed, the tv guide was still showing the Raiders/Chargers!

I just want to say thanks to all the TAR detectives, everytime I see a commercial I can't imagine having to pick it apart :lol3:

It looks like whatever kind of shinagins the Goths are up to at the airport, they won't have much affect on the teams getting to Mumbai.  Looks like all teams arrive in the middle of the night (which is the normal thing that happens when arriving in India from anywheres) and catch one of those minicabs somewhere and then we have a bunchup as they wait for "hours of operation to kick in" the next morning.  This gives the five teams all day to complete the detour, roadblock, and speedbump (Goth's extra task) and then get ye to the olde pit stop on time.

We don't know much but I'd guess that the Roadblock comes first with TK/Ron& Christina and now Don bunched up at the tanks~

I've just learned that the New York market will now receive the Dallas-Washington game on Fox opposite the Chiefs-Jets on CBS. What does that mean? It means a hit on TAR's ratings for this episode in the nation's biggest market. With the Jets being pitiful this season and a lot of Cowboys fans living in New York, this means a lot of attention away from CBS in the late game. Hoo boy.

This news is so fresh that even the NFL Coverage Map for Fox hasn't been updated. I'll post this over in the ratings thread as well.
