William Shakespeare - "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark" should really be rewritten for Guilin. World Race Productions pulled some shady deals in this episode.

First is the 22 hour pit stop.
Second is not showing some kind of hours of operation. The first 4 teams would all have arrived in Guilin airport by midnight, with the delay on CZ3303 not putting Jaime/Cara and Victor/Tammy and Margie/Luke in much after Kisha/Jen on Shenzhen 9637. OK, so they have at least until after sunrise at 656am to do something. Since nothing is shown, they has to have been an unshown hours of operation halt. If not, then all teams would have arrived at the first clue box at the beauty salon at its opening and they clearly did not.
Third, the editors pulled their ususal stunts in attempting to make it look competitive for Mark/Michael. After being stradned overnight in Guanzhou airport they would not have left Guilin airport before 11am. I look to Chateau to provide some confirmation if possible, but I see no way(except really strange hours of operation) that Jaime/Cara would not have completed their ROADBLOCK and DETOURS before that.

what are the boards for? learn Chinese?


Lucky guess!  :lol: ,, I'm still not sure where the "coal" idea came from though?



There was mention of a steel factory in some of the possible sites for Guilin.  Since coal is used in the production of steel, the leap was taken that the black marks on Kisha's hands was coal dust.

There we go, the Folded Brocade Mountains!

Kisha/Jen are with everyone else, so it's got to have been a total bunch. Hours of Operation!

The drums were there when I arrived two weeks later - are they there all the time, or should I have stolen them too? :snicker:



Quote from: Signboard
Drums of Life

The Folded Brocade Mountains are also known as the Longevity Mountains. The saying goes,
"Having passed the cavern shrine,
Your years will last past ninety-nine,
The summit is a guarantee,
You'll live to see five score and three."


Drum sticks available for Y2 a person.

The words on the drums are variations of the word "Longevity". There are one or two which read "Emolument", signifying the fortunes of high rank.



"Official" opening hours range from anything between 6am and 8.30am - online sources are all over the place.

I'm sorry you didn't get a drum Neobie  :lol:

Sort of an odd insider clip here .. the girls did not even see the "tweedles" at the mandatory rest stop and only knew they were still in the race because they saw the Speedbump with their picture.
They didn't even know if there was an elimination "yesterday" or today.
