Map above updated with lines...

Can anyone figure out why Caite/Jordan are going in the "wrong" direction? Here's how the S-Bahn line looks:
-- Landungsbrucken -- Stadthausbrucke -- Fernjungstieg --

They start at Fernjungstieg, headed for Landungsbrucken, but decide they are headed the wrong way at Stadthausbrucke. What's going on?

We know teams will land at Mahe International Airport on Victoria island. We know they will be going to the island Anonyme. Do they have time to visit a third Seychelles island?

Anonyme is still speculation. Pension Michel (the site for the coconut cart task) is on La Digue.

D'oh, sorry! I've been out of town the past two weeks, came back to be overwhelmed by Penang, and have been putting this off! I'll need to work on the Seychelles once I have the time, but here's France...

Singapore: Street maps of the downtown area here and here. SG has good streetview coverage; here are some VR panos to round it out. StreetDirectory is a good business finder (with occasional photos); here is the Island Life shop on Sentosa (one of them, anyway).

Here's a preliminary Shanghai map. Feel free to flame any mistakes. I centered the pins using satellite view; when you switch to map view, the pins move to right somewhat.

Here's an interactive Shanghai metro map. The editors would have us think the cowboys (and maybe the other teams) took the elevated Line 3 out of Hongkou. Maybe they did, but it would have meant an extra 15-30 minutes to connect to Line 2 (direct to pitstop). Taking the underground Line 8 would have been faster.

I'm sure the cowboys and the models took the underground Line 8 (according to the colour of the subway)

They say the museum is 5 stops away (which makes sense if they are at the Line 8 interchange), so yeah they took Line 8.

Right! They must connect to Line 2 at People's Square.

Sorry for the delay. Singapore's still as messy as ever.

These are beautiful...but if you don't embed them they get deleted in the periodic Rob purges...and they are too pretty to lose. Let me know if you want me to host them for you.
