That doesn't look good, but I still hold out slim hope that they remain.

Aren't Brad & Victoria supposed to have gotten to India?  If they had, then they're safe for this leg.

The Complexul Sportiv National Lia Manoliu is on the east side of the city:
Bucharest Sector 2, B-dul Basarabia 37-39

That's 11km from the airport, 7km from the North Train Station. Here's a huge map of the complex, and here's a site with lots of photos...

*sigh* Hundreds of photos of that room, and none in the angle for us to see that "clock"!
From Phil's diary we can see that he was there at 15:37:50 and the temperature was 16C.

Added another image this one shows 15:40:17...

fwiw ..I believe Chateau's area that was pointed out above is Simon -Brasov, Romania, that's where his coordinates took me.

If the tagging is accurate then the "sala gimnastica" is here, next to the abandoned parachute tower.
On a different topic, the teams go from the airport to the gymnastics, correct? But Jodi is spotted on the plane asking locals about the train station (page 1). Just being thorough? ???

It is odd that Jodi was asking about trains and not the gymnasium ..

And this .. which female team we can't be sure but I don't think it matters since the 3 female teams seem to have bunched or traveled together

• At 4am on Wednesday morning, staying up all night in honor of the US Presidential Election, I found myself at Gara de Nord, Bucharest’s primary train station.
.....even though it was supposed to be closed until 4:30.
These other travelers were, in fact, the cast and crew of the 14th season of The Amazing Race, filming their way through Romania. I looked inside and watched the teams of two flanked by cameramen and production staff.
They all seemed unaware of the motley crowd outside those doors.
They talked to each other, milled around, and consulted maps.
One particular team of young women looked too manicured for such a contest at such an hour.
At 4:20am, the ticket counters opened early for them; the crowd outside moved closer to the locked doors.
Ten minutes later, the station’s McDonald’s franchise let the cast and crew inside while keeping the public, now allowed in the building, locked outside.

From this video.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYJjrt34Z3k



Mel and Mike definitely are at the pitstop. Is there anyway Amanda and Kris's shot might be at the pitstop too? It looks like it is, but i think it is not. But Amanda and Kris reactions seemed like they are at the pitstop and safe from elimination from the video? :duno:

Someone help me with this. ;D

I think it sucks going out of a race due to a missed flight connection you can never control. (UCHENNA AND JOYCE) (:;) :knuckles:

I am willing to bet my lungs that Kris says the title.

I'm guessing that Mel says it.  I can't wait to see Mike on the balance beam... hehe!

Puddin,

I believe Bran Castle is down the valley on a hill on the right. I think Chateau has it correctly circled and marked "DC" for Dracula's Castle. It is really hard to tell actually where it is with all the little blue boxes all over the place.

Dear Chateau ... you have given us so much already ... but ... do you know when Mel & Mike arrived at the PitStop?

 :jam:

I've stared at that shot for 10 minutes and I can't dig out any good lines.  But, I'll offer my gut feel that it is at least 30 minutes later than the Pit Stop arrival that I timed above.   :duno:
