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?
  Hi Janet! And :welcome2: to RFF!

That's an old screen cap....

This season must go to another continent.

Season 1 went to Oceania (Australia and New Zealand)
Season 2 went to Oceania (New Zealand), Europe (Germany, Czech Republic and Hungary) and Oceania (New Zealand) and Africa (South Africa)
Season 3 has stayed within Southeast Asia for the first Three Legs, East Asia in the next Four (and half of the 8th leg) legs and in South Asia for half of the 8th leg and the 9th leg.

Although it is not a written rule, since Amazing Race 8: Family Edition and The Amazing Race:
A Corrida Milionária both stayed in just one continent in the duration of the race (North America for the former and South America for the latter) the speculation of possibly going to East Africa is a sound one, unless they are really making an All-Asia season.

Looks like OMAN to me...

Tasks--zipline from one side to the other?

Perhaps one Detour is something w/ what looks like carpets?

AD/Fuzzie must know they are last at this point due to the U-Turn..."never give up"...

Next leg sure looks like Oman, peach.  The carpet thingies could be a prayer carper store.  Here's some possible sites for the outdoor stuff:

Salalah is one of the second largest towns in Oman. Salalah is also the country's biggest cargo port. The rocky area and the diverse terrain of mountains allow the guests to go for that spine tingling adventure. The active spirits and the adventure enthusiasts can certainly try out the variety of activities that the city has to offer. Adventure and recreation in Salalah make for an exciting and exhilarating holiday in the city surrounded with tropical mountains.

Rock Climbing: While rock climbing on the rocky, rugged turf of the mountainous terrain of Salalah, one can experience bliss unparallel to any other sporting activity in the world. Scaling the 3000 meter high rugged rock mass set amongst the deep canyons and towering cliffs is one of the fascinating challenges for every rock climber. The rocky terrain at Salalah offers the tourist with this wonderful opportunity.
   :angel:

On second thought, Salalah looks a little too green (and too far from Muscat), so maybe rock stuff is in the desert further inland.  :lol:

Based on the probability that episode 10 will turn out to be in Oman, I have developed  alternative flight combinations departing from Pune:

PNQ BOM  9W102  1750 1830, connecting in Mumbai to BOM MCT  IC685    2200 2310

PNQ BLR   9W446  1340 1455, connecting in Bangalore to BLR MCT   IC977    1840 2025

PNQ BOM  9W106  1110 1140, connceting in Mumbai to BOM MCT  WY808   1730 1840

PNQ BOM  IT3171   0600 0635, connecting in Mumbai to BOM BAH  GF57  0725 0850, connecting in Bahrain to BAH MCT GF552 0950 1220

The shortest of those layovers for the first 3 combinations is 3.5 hours.

It's not a rock climbing, it's across the valley like in season 2 between 2 buildings. How do you called ?

The scene with the carpets or rugs maybe in a village in Jabal shams or Wadi Ghul where men weave rugs using sheep and goats hair.

I have been doing some reserach on the Shangri-La Hotels Barr Al-Jissah Resort and Spa. The cheapest room rate is 151 rials, which at a fixed exchange rate of .365 rials = 1 U.S. Dollar means that such a room costs $414 a night. I bet Michael McKay puts remaining teams in tents for the pitstop. Amenities  there include spa, swimming pool, business centre, fitness centre, golf and tennis as well as some award-winning restaurants

From the Wiki Travellers Point Wiki Travel Guide to Oman -
"By Train
There are no domestic train services in Oman."

"Oman is studying a plan to establish a railway in all areas of the country to connect them economically and commercially." This implies that there is no railway now. However, that is not quite true. There is one at the Al Hota Cave, but it does not match the screenshots.

I thought perhaps there would be a subway. Indeed, there are several Subways in Muscat, but they only serve food.
