There's so much new construction going on (and the GE imagery is more than a year old), it's hard to say...For example, here's a neighborhood mosque with maybe 4 minarets. Nearby there's a tall flagpole that may be the thing on the right of the cap. I can't line up the perspective though, and who knows maybe more has been built in the same area (and everywhere else) in the past year.

 ;D  I suspect it's more likely a giant cell phone pole/tower...  :res:

... i've been all over Sharjah and Al Mamzar with no luck, so far...  :groan:

The promo cap of the Trotters bears a resemblance to building features of the Deira Gold Souk (photo source).

From this image, it looks like racers would get off the water slide and head towards the beach on the upper right part of the picture to get to the Mat.

 :tup: yep, that works, gator.  ...but to make it more challenging, I'd hide Phil all the way down the beach by the breakwater/boat dock, just for kicks.  :snicker:

 :yess: Good job, Slowhatch.

 :lol: Looks like Cheyne & Meghan may have a different challenge, involving waterpipes.  :ascared They give each other the high five after doing something (unpacking?).  :duno:

edited to add:
Along the slightly larger lanes of the gold souk, each shop window is crammed with gold necklaces, rings, bangles, earrings and brooches. In the evening the area is a hive of activity. Gold prices are among the lowest in the world.

In other small streets, the visitor can find shops selling nargilehs (hookah or hubble-bubble pipes) and coffee pots, and nearby tea stalls where both of these items are in daily use.

Random thought: Is there a chance Mika/Canaan quit the Atlantis task, and that's why they are eliminated? Due to a penalty?
Raymond, the odds are maybe 40% that you are right with this hypothesis. However, the more likely propsect is that CBS/WRP have used the old misdirection play to lead you to the incorrect conclusion that Mika is giving up and will not go down that slide. Think of the number of instances in Amazing Races where just before the commercial all is lost and then there is a miraculous recovery. I predict that will happen one more time. Mika/Canaan may still be eliminated, however, due to the time lost before she does go down the slide.
Thanks for your explanation, Mr. Amazing Race.

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

Creekside park has possibilites--the pole might be a pylon for the gondola ride--but like everybody else I can't find a good mosque (or that office building in the background).

 :lol:  great, but the mosque was only useful in identifying the park where the trotter paddles his boat... any luck finding the other two building?   ;D  :res: :groan:

So that still leaves us with the waterpipe (hookah) task location (most likely also near the gold souk), and the two briefcase locations.  (:;) :knuckles: :meow:

Is there a possibility that this leg might be a NEL?

eragon,

Now there is a good prediction. I agree with you. I rate the probability in the 50% range that the second Dubai episode is either NEL or TBC. There are two NELs or TBCs left in this race. I expect one to be found in one of the 2 legs in Czech Republic. The other has to be somewhere. If you work backward from the Czech assumption, you need 3 teams exiting Prague, 4  (if Czech NEL) or 5 (if Czech TBC) exiting Talinn, 5 or 6 exiting Stockholm 6 or 7 and exiting Dubai 6 or 7. It could go either way.
