I'll put this here, again still no video evidence 



There's been a bit of talk on here as to where in Cambodia the pit stop is.  I stumbled across filming of the race while in Phnom Penh, and hung out at the pit stop for 3 hours, watching all of the action.  The pit stop is at Wat Phnom, which is the founding place of Phnom Penh.  Sorry, no pictures to back this up, as it was a 'locked site'.  We were told to put our equipment away or it'd be confiscated.


Glad I could help!!  :)  Not exactly sure on the order, but I'm pretty sure the globetrotters were one of the first few to check in as they were one of the first to leave the pit stop in the vans.  When I arrived at Wat Phnom it was July 25th at approximately 2:00pm.  Most teams managed to check in, but we did see one team racing to the top.  Got it on video but it's not clear as to which team it was.  I've got some other video of teams that have already checked in.

I am transferring some information about the most logical flight from HoChiMinh City to Phnom Penh: VN670 0730 0820 SGN PNH.

Teams began leg 3 between 545am and 629am on the boat, then had a 2 hour taxi ride to HCMC, then the water puppets, then transportation to the post office, then transportation to their DETOUR of choice, the DETOUR itself, then transportation to ROADBLOCK, the ROADBLOCK itself and transportation to the pit stop. They should reach the pit stop between 10am and noon. Add 12 hours for a standard pit stop and you have teams getting to the HoChiMinh City airport around midnight. They will have a long wait until the first flight at 0730, typical of Amazing Race legs when bunching is paramount.

Apskip, I can't find that VN 670 flight in the database.  Is it real?   :duno:

Here is the flight that I think they took:

VN 817 leaving HCMC at 12:25 pm and arriving in Phnom Penh at 1:15 pm.

1.Isn't the guy in the white shirt in the back the person who asked Tiffany if they were poka players in Tokyo? Or is he a Amazing Race detective too, but can acually afford to follow them around?

2.Lance and Keri are going to get on a late flight for one of these three reasons:
1.Late release time at pitstart
2.Thier frustrated to cause them unable to negociate nicely with the counter lady(look at their glare)
3.A switch up causes teams to catch up and Keri and Lance fell behind again(Reason for num2)(And the reason why Zev is in the picture)

I did exactly spot this team at the Tan Son Nhat International Airport for two weeks ago while I was waiting for my flight to Japan

I asked the date and team ..

Re: The Amazing Race Re: The Amazing Race I saw them on July 25th evening at the airport. I do not remember the team, but there was a lady and a man. It looked like they were trying to find tickets to the next destination, they did even borrow a computer from a check-in disk for International flights.

Trying to bring some of the Cambodia posts over ..

bleachedquasar: Saw two teams running round Bangkok airport filming an episode of the Amazing Race. Neato

:jam:    Looks like a Khmer Theatre (or dance) Mask.   :yess:

Wat Phnom  :jam:

http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=18840.0;attach=123104;image

This picture was taken here:





:yess: same building in background


And yet we have teams running through Bangkok at 5pm, suggesting:
PG 934 to Bangkok, 1530-1640; TG 517 to Dubai, 1800-2130 (thanks Peach and folks on the Flights thread!)

There are 0940, 1005 and 1140 flights between Phnom Penh and Bangkok. I don't think teams will finish in Phnom Penh after 11pm to miss that third flight and risk a tighter connection, so I believe TPTB extended the Pit Stop?

A little more evidence: Phil needs to leave on the 8pm Phnom Penh-Bangkok flight on the 25th, or he'd be stuck in Phnom Penh together with the teams. All check-in's have to be done before that. A 12h Pit Stop with all check-in's before 8pm means teams would be taking the 9.40am flight to Bangkok the next morning, not the 3.30pm.

New modus operandi is to extend almost all Pit Stops as necessary to give Phil breathing room. The later departure times here, though, could have been to force teams onto different flights (see Flights thread) for different morning start times in Dubai, preventing an all-out bunching. By extending the Pit Stop, they could be preventing the "big equalizer" Chateau mentions.



First bus from HCMC gets in at about 2pm. Direct flights 1225-1315 and 1415-1455. Any of these could fit, eh?

This shot was taken between 4:22 and 4:30 pm (assumes July 25th).

The exif data on the pics of the Trotters arrival and starting their run is listed at 7/25 1:26PM

The exif data on the shot up at who we are presuming is Zev and Justin shows 7/25 1:19PM.

The source is from California.... :lol:

Thanks Puddin.  I know its blurry.  I hope something solid turns up.

I used a couple screens: 

1)  has to be within walking distance to Pit Stop (preferably north of the Pit Stop)
2)  building's orientation has to throw shadows the right way for 2 pm to 4 pm

Well, the promo cap does match FCC Phnom Penh (photo source). If we can get a good shot of the paper, we can find the task (I think it's like Mumbai or La Paz).
