Our Dubai blogger (thanks to walking pneumonia for the find!!)  has been able to share some more information with us: Bold is mine...

Quote
I'd be happy to answer your questions, but a big caveat first: although we spoke to a couple of the contestants and it sure appeared to be the amazing race, no one could confirm because they all cited confidentiality agreements.

having said that, here's what we saw: it was roughly 10:30 p.m. dubai time on sunday, july 26. we were coming out of urbano, a restaurant in souk al bahar. they were not in the restaurant; they were looking for a checkpoint outside. (it turned out to be near the dubai mall taxi stand, by a giant statue of a black horse.) when we got up close to the checkpoint, we could see that it was a sign-in sheet, and there was a producer waiting nearby to hand the contestants instructions. the teams we saw were each one man, one woman, in their 20s or early 30s, dressed in t-shirts and giant backpacks. we didn't get any pictures of the contestants... sorry.

I have sent some pictures to him in hopes that he can recognize who he spoke with, as well as confirm the horse, :funny:

Possible black horse:

This in a PM from the guy on the flight to Dubai...I'm trying to get flight details as well:

Their seemed to be team consisting of two females (one looked asian, the other american i am guessing!) and too tall 'black dudes.' i dont remember seeing anyone else but i will ask my friend i travelled with and may get back to you!

This is before he said, "And a hot blonde...".  All of those sound exactly like 3 of our teams.

Possible black horse:


I think it may be this horse created by Fernando Botero (famous horse sculptor   :funny: ) - strategically located in front of the Burj Dubai - the really tall building.

Guess we have an HOH situation - sign in sheet to go up the Burj Dubai (2,684 ft) when it opens in the am. That would be one long bungy jump - hopefully its a "spot the gnome".

Great Peach!  I just looked on wikipedia and they are building so many amazing buildings there!  I have a feeling of the black horse in front of the Burj Dubai too.

I was thinking that they would do some indoor skiing while they were there.
But I think it is a different mall...If there is one I think there is a better one.
Mall of the emirates:

THIS IS JUST SPECULATION

They already did that in Amazing Race Asia (season 1, leg 10). Teams had to climb the steepest slope in Ski Dubai while carrying 25 kg worth of skiing equipment. Their next clue would be collected at the top of the slope.

I thing they would use this location now in American season. Here is the picture of ski slope.

The horse to me looks best there and they may then need to go to the mall and ski place. Sounds right!

Pretty good confirmation of two more teams from our Dubai source, after reviewing the pics I sent:

I'm pretty sure the guy we briefly talked to was the male half of the maroon team. the two we encountered outside the restaurant were, I'm fairly certain, jodah and michelle.

Well I was able to coax some images out of those two polaroid liners that I found at the Startline in the LA River..   :tup:

I had to razor-blade scrape an encrustation of goo off the negatives.  I put each negative into a petri dish of isopropyl alcohol.  That helped to soften the goo.  But it also softened the image layer as well. 

So I found myself somewhere between revealing and erasing the image.














This is the second polaroid.  I decided to just look at it through the IPA.
