Ooopssie...edited cuz peach had a moment, lol....just ignore me  :-[ and  :carryon:


But you know what? I am just not ready to give up my faith in the Intro caps.  :tup:

To the best of our knowledge, both the Cape Town bathing huts and the resort in Muscat are new. And I don't ever remember in TAR or TARA them giving us NEW screencaps that we never see. We do see OLD ones reused to confuse us, and that's part of the fun.

 I have some Pune tidbits from a friend coming up.... :hearts:

okay, I had to go get my notes!

I have a friend from Mumbai who is familiar with the area, and he kindly looked at the preview with me today.

He know of NO reason why the Pune airport would be a problem, but said that it is only 1.5-2 hours drive max to Mumbai, so any ongoing International flight would prob use that airport.

He looked at this picture and immediately said that is not Pune because the buses look different.

Perhaps back in Kochi, or we wondered if maybe even Mumbai??

Who's good at the buses? :lol:

And when the day's fun is all done, it's time once again to race off to the airport to prepare for the teams to start the next leg!

Allan Wu's blog is up and he has to fly. Hmm.



What about the racers? Do they fly or take a train?  :sucks

It's Pune, as best I can see it: MH is Maharashtra and 12 is Pune.

The pointy building is  labeled as "Mahatma Phule Mandai", and the yellow thingie is probably some sign.  Why is this important, we know exactly where this intersection is in Pune.  :angel:

Mahatma Phule Mandai ( Market )

 Mahatma Phule Mandai is situated in the center of Pune City. Because of its location this place is often used for meetings, Conferences, starting point for the Ganesh festival procession etc. This market is well known for getting fresh vegetables, fruits and articles for the Poojas

If you didnt know, i started watching TAR frm this season and TARA all 3 seasons, which means that im not THAT high on TAR/TARA knowledge.

I've noticed in the opening titantrom there is a map with names of countries on them such as LA,Jakarta and so on. Do these signify anything? The intro on Youtube is herehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFHRGwyf2nA. Pause at 0:06

And banzai's summary of this leg is very accurate.

So its not Pune. Mumbai?

Wait. Maybe its.... Cochin -> Mumbai ->Pune or vice visera for the last 2.

No, it is definitely Pune.  ;) Except maybe that one picture may be elsewhere.

Just maybe they fly out of Pune using the Mumbai airport next time?

ryaniiez, those maps are there to fake out listeners who don't know any better. You assume that they are places where the Amazing Race Asia have gone, but half of them are not in that category so they could be places where you can expect ARA to go in the future.

Peach:

There should be no problem flying out of Pune airport. On a typical weekday there are 8 nonstop flights to Delhi, 3 nonstop flights to Mumbai, and 3 nonstop flights to Bangalore. Either Delhi or Mumbai would be good for overseas flights.

There is a code-share flight non-stop from Cochin to Dubai AI6531 daily except Monday and Tuesday 0900 1230. But since teams are going to be over 700 miles from Cochin that would not be a good choice. Some have pointed out that it is around 2 hours by road from Pune to Mumbai airport, but traditionally Amazing Racers have not been permitted to use other than air transportation from their "local" airport in an ARA or Amazing Race leg. When we get a better idea of where the following leg is, I will issue the corresponding flight information(which few would want to read sooner given the complexity of choices remaining).

Oh, so they're to mislead people? Oh okay...I saw Istanbul(Turkey) and went "HUH?!"

Leg 9:India(Pune);NEL/TBC;4teams left
Leg10:Fly out frm Mumbai to CT/Oman;EL;3teams left
Leg11:???Asian city;Finale;3teams race to finish for 100,000USD

AH!Oman IS a asian city! So maybe its Leg10 in CT and Finale in Oman?

Peach, what is the source of your information about ARA3 finishing Nov. 23? First of all, that is a Sunday which makes no sense. Second, there is a wikipedia entry which states
Quote
"The season finale will air on November 20, 2008,"
contradicting that summary statement for that wikipedia entry that says Nov. 23, 2008 and is probably a grave error.

I believe Nov. 20 is correct as the date of the finale episode. I see no reason at this time why 11 episodes does not mean 11 episodes. I do not expect that there will need to be a 12th epsiode. Although it is barely possible that an 11th episode could end with a TBC that extends the final leg to 12 but counting it as 11B, I think that it a stretch beyond reason.

You are absolutely right, I had a TAR/TARAsia moment...  :groan:

So ignore all that, okay??  :-[

Now I have to go back to grieving for a missed leg, :lol3:

The drive from Pune to the Mumbai airport is closer to 3 hours.  You have to drive across the Ghat mountains and it takes some time (I saw a monkey dancing on the freeway there once upon a time, but that's another story).

The Pune airport is small and easy to get in and out with lots of flights to gateway cities in India (Mumbai, Delhi, etc).  The military usage of the airport usually causes no issues.

 :lol:  FWIW, my guess is that this traffic jam is in Pune.  I have seen those same unique light posts in a few other Pune images I've seen on the web (unless they are ubiquitous to all of India).   :angel:

But you know what? I am just not ready to give up my faith in the Intro caps.  :tup:

To the best of our knowledge, both the Cape Town bathing huts and the resort in Muscat are new. And I don't ever remember in TAR or TARA them giving us NEW screencaps that we never see. We do see OLD ones reused to confuse us, and that's part of the fun.

Did you see what looks like a man racing on a horse in the intro?  I don't recall horses being used in the past seasons of TARA.  In this season perhaps?
