Teeny flaw (actually just covering my ass for the map labelling): what Tammy and Victor read as "Fuyong Lang" is actually "Furong Lang" (Hibiscus Court/Gallery) in Mandarin. They're of Taiwanese descent, so maybe that came from Minnanese roots?
The Calligraphy option brought teams about halfway to the Pit Stop - so they were at a bit of an advantage there.
Edited to fix: Phil's Banyan Lake is actually the one closer to the South Gate. The Pit Stop lake translates closer to Cedar or Fir.
