It's definitely northern India. I don't recognize the place though (I am from south)
In one of the posters, it says "Loans .... call - 02*****" (I am not able to decipher the rest). Area code of Mumbai is 022. But again, there so many places having area code starting with 02 (mostly cities around mumbai). Also, India's film industry is based in Mumbai. If I have to guess about the next destination, I'd say it is Mumbai, India.

merry x'mas to y'all


Thanks to TARIndiaFan @ AXN

What's happening?

It's Wednesday evening, and still no insider information on Ep 8.

Air flights?

Train?

Donkey Cart?

Wall papering and xxxxxxxx? is the detour?

Roadblock?

Speed Bump?

Seems a monsoon has swept all clues out to sea!

Clues

tvguide magazine 12/30
Reality: Amazing Race~
The teams may think that running around the globe is good for their relationship, but all the trekking is about to start wrecking ones couples's closeness when their worst qualities come to the fore. Meanwhile, another team plays dirty to throw two competitors off-schedule at the airport.

The Amazing Race:
One of the teams is resorting to airport theatrics to bump another pair onto a later flight. The things folks will do to impress that Phil fella!

CBS clues~
HONESTLY, THEY HAVE WITCH POWERS OR SOMETHING!
*One Team resorts to performance art in an attempt to trick another Team into buying tickets for a later flight.
*Progress in one Team's relationship comes to a halt when one Team member shows signs of his former self.
*And don't miss a nail-biting race to the Pit Stop!
:bar:
Roadblock, deliver 6 tanks of propane:
Nick

Ron

Kynt who has no brakes  :groan:

TK

Jen

:bar:
Detours --
paste Bollywood posters
Ron & Christina who bicker

Some elephant ceremony? thingy?

TK & Rachel


:bar:
Dariya Mahal PitStop is looking good Boingo!

looks like Jen is doing Gaja Puja

Gaja puja (elephant worship)  ... A big flower garland and a dhothi offered to an elephant....

looked up the Ganesh festival which is a big deal in Mumbai but that isn't until the end of August

though the guy in red looks like he is dressed in traditional groom getup

If you flickr mumbai propane you get a few pictures and one interesting commentary. The red cylinders are Bharatgas; I don't know if other companies use the same colors, but anyway a distributor list is here.

Why all the 60's flower power overlays?  Is CBS trying to tell us something about Team Flower children, TK/Rachel?

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?
