Its in a little bit of Spanish as well, "día mañan" means day flows.

I'd say that it Portuguese. I'm Spanish and never heard those words.

Google Translate detected it as Galician, but didn't make a full translation.

Portuguese and Gallego (which I suppose it is Galician in English) are the same, or just like British and American English, with very few differences.

Hi people! This sounds like Papiamentu. It's not portuguese, neither spanish. And since countries that speak this language are close to Venezuela, I think this is TAR Latin America, not TAR17 (I'm brazilian, sorry for bad english :))

Great find! It certainly looks like the right people.

To this very untrained eye that has never been to Heathrow (or even Europe at all), the red part of the overhead monitors look like the Virgin Atlantic logo, but the picture isn't of a good enough resolution to be readable. There was speculation the teams flying Virgin Atlantic to Accra, Ghana, so that would fit if I'm right.

Yes, the lime green girls are there.  They're the ones at the counter.

The pink girls, though?  I'm pretty sure that's one of the coed teams, as a man is right next to her.  Unless that's a cameraman.

I have a date to add to the LHR picture.  The person who took the shot was at LHR to catch a flight that would get them home on the 29th.  They are from Singapore.  

So the day they saw teams at LHR was Friday the 28th.

This would mean that  there was no 2nd leg in England!    :ascared

The first leg probably ended on the evening of the day they landed:  Thursday the 27th.  About 12 hours for Pit Stop and make your way to LHR puts them at about 16:19 easily.

Okay, I just heard back from the charming blogger herself. She confirms May 28 Friday at about 4 (4:19 per wp's photo).

She also says that Team Green were the first at the counter and first to get their tickets of the group she saw.

about 4 hours

We are going to follow hehe looks like amazing racers but I doubt its the really show http://twitpic.com/1ssq9g

Ah stop dripping sky!

Imagine if it is the actual amazing race ★ haha yeahhh right!

Pinch me I'm dreaming this could actually be the amazing race here in my country!

Why are none of these people returning from the bridge?

Tourist friend sarah says its american amazing race but where did they go?? My stomach has butterflies!

This is so fun!

Who would have thought, amazing race in ghana? Not me! Last season I saw studing abroad, I hope I see more teams its nearly dark ☹
about 2 hours ago

they were in our national park, I'm a tour guide their havnt seem them since sorry! Saw 2 teams both all girls.

one bridge was closed for construction which confused me as to why there were on it because its a full connecting path



ababuo12 is tweeter. Has no tweeting history. Could someone figure out when it gets dark, and what the weather is today, to help figure out if this is possibly real, or another red herring?

Her statement that it was nearly dark, tweeted about two hours ago is perfectly consistent with a sun set time of 6:17 pm.

It is now 9:24 pm there.   :tup:

Literal translations:

BernardinoCipr    "Ir ao mercado começ(sic) peixes"
Go to the market eat(?) fish

BernardinoCipr    "Equipe asiática em o que eu acredito era escuro - azul duas todas as equipes do macho: dois machos na obscuridade"
Asian team which I believe were dark(!) - Blue two all teams of male(actually, the word he used is more common to describe gender of animals), two males in obscurity(?)

"BernardinoCipr    "esverdeie e dois na laranja quatro todas as equipes da fêmea em azul verde e marrom cor-de-rosa um macho"
Greener(?) and two at orange four all the teams female(again, the animal gender) in blue green and brown pink one male.

BernardinoCipr   " masculino roxo na fêmea branca no roxo e uma equipe na mamã preta no filho preto no azul."
Purple male at the white famale(!) in the purple and one team at black mother in black son (!) at blue.  :lol:

BernardinoCipr    "pesaroso para a gramática má"
Untranslatable phrase about his Bad grammar, USING his bad grammar  :lol:


Maybe sic meanx six? I'm Spanish, and it could be a major mispelling?

sic is a literary expression used when words are displayed/printed in the exact spelling provided (by a source) even though they have grammar/syntax errors. "Ir ao mercado começ(sic) peixes" could mean "Go to the market eat fish", even though the correct word for "eat" is comer. The author here could be using (sic) to point out that he's printing the word with errors on purpose.
