 :lol:  Looks like mom/son are walking around in their "wedding dummy horse dance costumes" during a Detour.  Even appears to be a guy with a wedding umbrella with them.

eta: OK, think I found the right description:

Kachhi Ghodi
 
This is a dance performed on dummy horses. Men in elaborate costumes ride the equally well decorated dummy horses.
 
 Originated from the bandit regions of Shekhawati, the dance is performed for the entertainment of the bridegroom's party. Dancers while elaborate costumes that resemble them riding on dummy horse. A vigorous dance, it uses mock fights and the brandishing of swords, nimble sidestepping and pirouetting to the music of fifes and drums. A ballad singer usually sings the exploits of the bandit Robin Hoods of Rajasthan.

Looks like the India leg would be so awesome, hope that it beats the other "incredible India" legs TAR has made for the past seasons!

Hmmm, Jaime and Cara seems to "lose their bags..." could they just experience the same thing that the divorcees experience in the second leg in Brazil last season?

Boingo, I definitely think that you have an accurate location on where Mel White is, or presumably where teams had to beg for rupees, you guys are great, just a few moments after the show ended, you could already match where these teams more or less be next episode! :jumpy:

puddin, what do you think would they do to the ruppees? Would they do something as close to Tina and Ken's launder money detour last season? I think that they're up to another marriage ritual... but I just couldn't find one.

I think I figured out the costumes, they are wedding "dummy horse" costumes used in the Kachhi Ghodi dance.    I updated previous post with additional details

Camels in Jaipur are theoretically possible, but here is a camel safari offered that ends 40km north of Jaipur:

Day 2 - SHAHPURA/ MEENO KI DHANI[ 22 kms,5 hrs] After breakfast, start the camel safari having picnic lunch via visiting the small villages. Check in at camp site, evening tea, dinner with live local music and overnight at camp.  
Day 3 - MEENO KI DHANI/MAHAR/JAIPUR [camel safari 12 kms and Drive to jaipur 40 kms] After breakfast, continue the camel safari till meeting point on road side upto lunch time then drive to Samode palace for lunch and sightseeing of Samode village and then drive to Jaipur. Checkin, dinner and overnight at hotel.  

Kalakho Camels  is at Dhani Village, so I guess that matches.

Another Speed Bump in India.
I think this will make a good tradition :)
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Searching for those buildings brings back memories of TAR1. They've already gone to Hawa Mahal, Jal Mahal and Amber Fort. I wonder if there'll be a revisit to one of those places.

My speculation though, is they revisit Amber Fort for the Speed Bump. Not actually up the fort, just below it.

Link to painted elephants that bring tourists up the fort.

And a quote from wikipedia on the Amber Fort article:

Quote
Today, tourists can ride up to the fort from the base of the hill on elephants. On the ride, one can see the skyline of Jaipur, Maotha lake, and the original city walls.

I think I have the camel location - the tower you see in the background is part of the Jaigarh Fort.

Sorry about the size of the image - I'll try to make it smaller.

If I've got the location right - I believe it is around 10 am.

Aww at Luke. And I think Christie and Jodi are pretty much screwed, the Speed Bump doesn't sound one bit easy. Make-up on an elephant? We all know animals don't give racers an easy time. =(

Thanks for that info patlini and Boingo!

And CBS is on the ball tonight!

Alright Guys, We're At War! (India)

-One racer surprises their teammate and smokes the Roadblock when they think outside the bucket.

-Racers are moved to tears upon seeing slumdog conditions in the Indian countryside.


-Car 54 where are you?-One team leaves their bags in the trunk of a taxi and gets ditched by its driver

--and a Speed Bump has one team testing their makeup skills on an elephant.


Don't know who the first clue refers to.

Second clue refers to Margie & Luke.

Third one refers to Cara & Jamie (but they'll survive).

Fourth one refers to Christie & Jodi (but will they survive?)
