OH. MY. GOD.

Schwarzmoor you rock! :jumpy:

So he was in:

Salvador de Bahia from 19 to 25 Apr (Cluebox there on the 24th)
Auckland from 27 to 30 Apr
Cambodia from 3 to 5 May (Phil's there on the 3rd; it's Tonle Sap on the 3rd and the 4th, Angkor Wat on the 5th)
Delhi from 6 to 9 May
Moscow from 10 to 13 May

Thanks Matt Reccow! (Someone's gonna get fired...) :duno:

Schwartzmoor, thank you for gifting us with soem a fine present.

The sight of St. Basil's in Moscow reconfirms Moscow as a stop. Oporto is a surpise, but it is the second city of Portugal(with the great port wine produced in the region around it). The gaps that remain are between Salvador and Bolivia and between Dubai and Moscow. I did not recognize anything that helps show what those places are.

I saw no pictures of Iguassu Falls, so if this photo album is a retrospective of where AR13 went it apparently did not go there. Also, I saw no photos of Dubai itself, so it apparently did not leave the airport there. Also, there are no pictures of Frankfurt, so I conclude that teams did not venture beyong the Frankfurt airport after arriving from Oporto.

Apskip, seems like he's on the production side, and has been skipping legs (Bolivia, for example) so we can't rule out anything just yet...

I don't think Porto's in there. Did we mix it up with Salvador?

6 May shows Humayun's Tomb, and 9 May shows the Qutub Complex in Delhi, FWIW.
Lawrence's Travels (6 May) is at Connaught Place, and Khari Baoli (7 May) is at Pandav Nagar, all in Delhi.

10 May is at the All-Russia Exhibition Centre in Moscow.

9 team tags at the Sky Tower? Which means at least 8 teams? Which means at least 7 teams in Cambodia? Which means?!?!

I finally found a team in the album. It's the mother and son team!

Could it be a roadblock? It seems he's going to retrieve a net which contains the fish

Bertram, Phil and Hayma Washington are on G3 1600 on the morning of the 23rd, leaving Rio at 10.30am and arriving Salvador at 12.30pm? (We were talking about this back on Page 15.) The two-letter airline code doesn't match, but AA, AH, HA and HH yield flights in Detroit, Algeria, Iceland and Germany respectively.

The race stared on the 22nd. Phil does not even have time to set foot in Sao Paulo, let alone eliminate a team there. Salvador belongs in Leg One!



At the top left corner, Matt leaves Salvador on the 25th on JJ 3179 to Sao Paulo to get to Auckland on the 27th, through Santiago or Buenos Aires. JJ 3895 and LA 5229 for Fred Meyer and Brent Benedetti also get to Sao Paulo, and I have no idea why they need to take separate flights.

 :jumpy:  Looks like the picasa pictures of the cluebox in Brazil are actually near the Sao Francisco Church along Ladeira de Carmo in Salvador (Bahia) Brazil.

Note baroque blue/white building in background with fancy pointy things on roof.  Cluebox is to the left of the church front (not seen very well in pictures).

Edited to Add:
A Igreja de São Francisco (The Church of Saint Francis) and its attached convent are up the cobbled streets and to the left at the far side of the Terreio de Jesus, standing at the end of an adjacent square (Praça Anchieta), beyond a large stone cross.

I dunno, I thought there was the RB at Angkor Wat already. Unless there's two legs in Cambodia.

*heads to Timelines to see if that is even remotely possible* - edit: maybe not, unless there's an uberleg somewhere in this

And a very big thanks for your findings!  :jumpy:

AHA! Remember 1311?

Matt flies to Auckland next, which from here is 1304. So I guess there are three legs in South America.

(Fred and Brent go to cover 1303, which means Bolivia.)

Cambodia would be Leg 5, and Leg 6 India, or maybe Cambodia Part II. Wow!

Lots of red and yellow on that staircase on the 23rd of April. Task for our racers?

Wow just wow I feel like a kid in a candy store  :yess:. I have all the photos saved to me hard drive plus the front page picture (just in case it goes bye bye). I'm inclined to think they spent more time in India then we originally thought?( nvm, already noted above, you guys are fast)

As Matt ends his day on an obscure beach in Salvador on the 24th (Photos #261-264), I can't help but wonder... was this the Pit Stop?

Hey Puddin Boingo, I'm working on that!


I thinks Teams will be sent to
the "House of Bulgakov".  He was a Russian novelist and playwright active in the first half of the 20th century.
Website for the museum at the Flat of Bulgakov

The website has a matching shot of the door.
