They go somewhere....we have two teams leaving widely apart at the pitstop who are together at the airport much later than one would expect unless they do something else first....

Nice call Puddin.

I watched the show and from the shadows it looks like the first three teams are all very close.  Of course the first two are same time.  But with the better shots and longer clips of show vs preview I have to say that I would not be able to place Oliver et al ahead of Bernie & Henry just by sun shadows alone.  I think my time estimate of Oliver on the mat is way off and their checkin time will be very close to Bernie & Henry's of between 10:45 and 11:09 am.  It was just by chance that the error I made put Oliver ahead of B&H.

Nice job Chateau!  :jumpy: :jumpy:

So really, the teams were fairly close together? Maybe that explains why Geoff and Tish are seen w/ AD/ Fuzzie at the airport. I am puzzled by what they do between 12MN and 2PM when we see them at the airport. Paintball? Something else? A longer pitstop? (doubt)

I am also concerned that we are not seeing what we expected in HCMC....unless teams have tasks in the city before heading out to the floating market...We have that extra day so could possibly be a TBC which might explain needing a 90 minute show??

Our source for this leg is trying to check-in with the other source, so perhaps we'll see.

Meanwhile, I asked about the building and the "WOW" sign, and here is his reply:
Quote
WOW is a fashion brand in Vietnam. The reddish building at Henry and Bernie, if it is in HCMC, it may
be the church, "Nh thờ Đức b" but it's quite far from the market :(


So that is not the right one, as puddin has found the perfect match anyway!  :gj: So where is this in relationship to the market? And the Opera?
I hoped that wow sign would help but seems not.
Slowhatch gave us this before which might help:
Diadem is the best street-mapping site I've found for Vietnam. 


So 5/21 at about 11PM and after, teams eligible for release from the Pitstop.
5/22 approx 2PM teams seen at airport in Chiang Mai.
5/22?? (date assumed) teams seen at Q-Bar in HCMC, supposedly to look for a clue in a flowershop which does not open till 6AM. Some teams arrive afternoon.

After that  :duno:
Laundry(?) task in HCMC
Then??

I hope the spoiler is correct and we do go to a floating village, I was really looking forward to seeing that.

The Jeanne d’arc church is located near Chinatown/Binh Tay Market , large market area and vendors, photos are easy to find.


Good Job Chateau, as always you rock  :jam:

Love it Boingo! :hearts:

So.....how hard would it be to add in the Q-bar and the Ben thanh market?  :-[ :angel: :-[

I can hear you now! Never satisfied, she's never satisfied... :funny: :funny: :funny:


Quote
She saw the teams at the Q-BAR near the Caravelle Hotel, near Opera House sometime between 10-12PM.


         From Slowhatch: If you have GE this download will put a 3D model of Ben Thanh market on the map. You can see the buses lined up at the station across the square.

Oman would certainly account for the dhow, and might explain the powerboat as well. I spent a few minutes yesterday trying to work the boat's ensign, but there wasn't enough resolution.
