:lol:  Travel Channel is showing right now it's Bizarre Foods show in Taiwan.  If the food task isn't in Osaka, then Taiwan surely can be the place.  Uuuugh...stinky tofu.    :lol3:
My parents love stinky tofu. I, on the other hand, hate stinky tofu.  :res: :res:

Does anyone think that there could possibly be a true TBC instead of a NEL??

That would solve the flight issues and I've given up on trying to figure out the Pitstop times...   :pull

I was wondering if the camera man rode in the platform of one of the gas delivery bikes while the sound man pedals.

Here he is:  running!   TK finishing the Roadblock

This shot was taken between 9:15 and 9:45 am (assumes July 24th).

Nice shot Chateau!!  We don't see the camera guys too often!

You know Michael : "the leg is not over--you are still racing--etc..."

If we truly believe the Taiwan spoiler then R/C should be gone before the teams get to Taipei 101 right? Hence elim'd THIS week and not next, which would mean no NEL this week.

But if you flight guru's are having trouble getting them to Taipei on time--then a TBC  instead of a NEL (if you think that might happen) is one way of solving the problem.  I think! :lol:

Well, the spoiler only said that somebody mentioned what the asians would say if they saw this place doesn't it? That doesn't mean they are eliminated.

I never bought that spoiler just because it seemed so weird that the racers would refer to Ron and Christina as "The asians" after racing for more than 2 weeks together.

Chateau  :groan: :lol: :pull

I can't believe I never noticed Nicolas' watch.  (I would assume around this time give or take Tk & Rachel are getting to the Mat)

So for any of my early flights, I need another weird ass Pit Stop.  Be curious if it happens.

Did we ever get a location for this shot:



It is shaded where they are but bright in the far background.  Does not provide much time resolution but could pin down a 3 or 4 hour span.

Chateau go here:

http://www.hardrock.com/locations/cafes3/tour.aspx?LocationID=73&MIBenumID=3

select the 360 front exterior tour and see what you think...

The shots of teams checking in at Bandra Fort are either in overcast or shadowless due to the sun being straight overhead.  That, Sun straight up , was between 12 noon and 1:30 pm.

About the Taipei 101 spoiler, I really question if the second-hand translation of the sequence of events can be taken with precise verbal accuracy.  Did the spopiler source really make the correct English word choice:  "if" or "when"

he heard the girl say something like I wonder what the Asians would say if they came to this place. 

I know from trying to learn a few foreign languages that those little connective words get mangled going both ways.   :umn:

And maybe our racers (Jen or Nate) did not say 'the Asians' but said something like

"I wonder what Ron & Christina will say when they get here since they have Chinese roots"

And it just gets reworked by the telephone-game effect.

Peach, I checked that 360 view and I don't think that is the place.  I know that Don and Nick are there in another shot but the shot of Ron & Christina crossing is someplace else.

Boingo also found this...

http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,14164.msg245822.html#msg245822

sorry--I'm going thru page by page here! :pull

Here: he has a kmz...

It's hard to tell from the caps, but if the robot soccer takes place at the Akazawa plant, then it's not too far from the other activities (if you want a PLEN, it's all yours--for $2390  ;D).

 :ascared  This is getting weird.  Maybe, as puddin says, the robots are at the Yodobashi store, which just happens to be just north of Hilton Plaza / Osaka Station.  Weird how all these places are so close together.   :duno:

I think I spotted a candidate for the Ron/Christina crosswalk close by also....   :lol:

Also this one:  Chateau--boingo thought that was near a train stop:

That looks about right except for being less tall (and full of tents!).

But that style of elevated roadway may be in wide general use for JR.

That last one may be any time of day with or without racers present.

I don't see the crosswalk shot in my GE view of the Yodobashi store.  Where is the long straight elevated raodway?

Yeah, maybe Jennifer actually said something that was later mistranslated.  That can happen.  This might give me some hope that Ron & Christina make it to Taipei.

I'm going to say tonight comes down to Ron & Cris vs. Nick & Don with dad and daughter winning giving way to the quote next week when T/R & JN find out at the airport when they all meet up who is the third team and then the "we really not happy to see you guys" quote.
