I've stumbled on some info that there may be a kayaking task in the Prague area tomorrow.  Don't want to be too specific because I  :hearts: TAR and don't want to mess up our race!



Elaborate more plz.

Don't even start password.

Info will be provided when we can . We have very valid reasons for waiting.


Peach, he clearly says he has info, and if he write that he does he should enclose it.

I really don't want to get into this, but I'm almost certain that graytex has the information but doesn't want to share it too early. It probably needs confirmation from other sources before it can safely be shared.

Let me just say the detectives have this under control. When it is appropriate and safe to share the info, we will. Thanks!

Trust me password, certain things need to be kept under wraps until it is safe to reveal. We wouldn't want to ruin the race!

Take your time. The last thing we want is for something to come out early and then it forces something else to get messed up.

And I can guarantee that I cleared what I posted with Peach beforehand so I didn't word things in the wrong way.

Okay!!

Remember walkingpneumonia's Twitter find?

jeni_mama:
was at the park where they also have temple in phnom penh, cambodia yesterday and saw amazing race: asia being filmed
* managed to get photos of three teams from amazing race: asia. was only few steps away from ém!10:40 PM Jul 25th

She has just returned home and jet lagged and all, has agreed to share the story of her TAR encounter and the pictures with us all! :hearts:

:thankyou: jeni_mama!!


This was taken on July 25, around 3pm to 3:30pm.

So, after running the errands on that day, we decided to go to wat phnom. As we parked and we were about to enter the front entrance, but we were told to go to next entrance to the park because they were filming something. That was when I first took picture of that cameramen waiting for teams to arrive. At first, I thought that maybe they were filming one of Cambodian movies because the Cambodian cops said they didn't know what it was for but all they knew was that they had to block it off from public, and there were limited areas where we could go.Then my mom told me that she thinks that it is for Amazing Race (she follows Amazing Race as well). So we went to the next entrance which was not even a minute walk away from the front entrance, to find the monkeys. But it was odd, because we couldn't find a single monkey there, and my relatives said they were surprised because they always see monkeys there every day (they live in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and I'm Cambodian-American myself as well), so we suspected that the city probably moved those monkeys for the filming. All of the sudden, someone tapped on my shoulder and told me to look at two Caucasian men wearing red, with black backpacks and that was when I realized that they were filming Amazing Race show. The cameramen that rode with them in Cambodia's "taxi" stayed to pay the taxi driver while the team ran off, since the other cameramen were already there waiting to film them. After paying taxi driver, those cameramen went to catch up with their team. I ran to take pictures of them but they were already on the stairs to the temple. So I waited nearby where I was allowed (I couldn't get any closer because they don't want people to interfere with the competition, which is understandable). I think maybe about 10-15 minutes later, I saw another taxi passed the front entrance, and they stopped at the same entrance where I entered, and I think they realized that they stopped at the wrong entrance, because they did not enter that entrance, and instead, they ran to the front entrance and entered there. I had to zoom in and take pictures of the 2nd team I saw when they stopped at wrong entrance. They were black men wearing blue jerseys with "Harlem" on the back. As soon as they entered the front entrance, they put on some type of masks (I think it was African masks but I'm not too sure), and started running. Their cameramen later caught up with them. I waited a little longer while for another team. I saw the 3rd team stopped at front entrance. One was Caucasian man, and one black woman. Both were wearing yellow. I took a quite several photos of them, and their cameramen as well. I stayed and waited for another team to arrive but then I couldn't stay any longer because I already had the day planned out. That was my The Amazing Race encounter. :D



Upcoming >>photos and descriptons!!  All Photo captions coutesy of jeni_mama!!

1. In the first photo, it was just cameramen waiting for teams.


2. In the 2nd one, I decided to take a close up photo of cameramen.


3. In the third one, I tried to take a picture of the first team I saw (I don't know if they were the first team to arrive there, or not) at wat phnom,
but I missed because as I took this photo, they were blocked by trees.


4. In the fourth picture, I attempted to take photo again, and if you look closer, you can see two Caucasian men wearing red with black backpacks.


5.I decided to take photos of cameramen that follows the "red" team. They rode with them in Cambodia's "taxi" when they first arrived at wat phnom.
 


more.....

And there is MORE!! And y'all aren't going to believe this one!! :funny:

The following is a true DETECTIVE GROUP COLLABORATION from walkingpneumonia, Slowhatch, Boingo, Chateau, graytex and puddin and peach.

graytex discovered a lead that with walkingpneumonia's help, took us to the Troja WhiteWater Centre, a training facility for world class kayakers.

Photos and Map Link

Google Earth coordinates from Boingo: 50° 6'45.90"N    14°25'30.53"E

and Boingo's Troja Panoramio

And (map here, pano here) from Slowhatch

But perhaps the BEST discovery came when walkingpneumonia pointed out that this site had....WEBCAMS!!  Which refresh at two minute intervals and provide an hourly archive.

After that it was really a matter of sitting back and letting puddin snag >300 pictures, which we will make available later on, after we've had some sleep!

SO WHY is this mportant you ask? The answer is is that this is the site of one of the final four tasks leading to the last elimination.

We were able to see quite a lot of production scurrying about, 4 inflatable red rafts, and eventually a team (or half team) come directly by the webcam on the way to the white water rapids downstream.  A bird's eye view....  :funny:

Here are a few of puddin's finest to give you a taste of what we saw!!  Just be SURE not to miss the suspended cameraguys!! :lol:


















All pictures taken via webam on Aug 5  between 10  and 3 PM Prague time.

Well, I sat on that webcam sight for 2 hours hitting refresh every 2 minutes.  I saw some activity then it died down so I thought it was nothing.  Then I find out that if I had stayed up for one more hour I would have seen racers.   :groan:  That'll teach me to not stay up all night with Peach!

Anyway, before I went to bed I did get this screen cap.  It was about 3 hours before the racers came through.  It looks like the arrival of the kayaks they are using.  Nice peak inside how quickly production sets up.  Also, in the background of many of the pics you can see a crane, which I think might be a camera boom.  It seems to have shown up about 3 days before the race, but I'll have to go back and look at more pictures to make sure.

Miracle of miracle,  I managed to snag the next frame at 10:04 am.  It has the suspended cameramen farther along the line.

Boy, in two minutes you can't see them.  They zoomed down that river.

Camera is still pointing up river.  "Blue" team must not be the last team.

A taxi arrived at bout 10:22 am.  By 10:32 we have what may be another team in the water.  You can see the suspended cameramen in action.
