Hey guys! Someone posted new photos of them on Cheung Chau Island, HK.
If you are interested, please go to http://www.discuss.com.hk/viewthread.php?tid=12405728&extra=page%3D1&page=3
We can identify them by their back packs :lol:
What time was that taken at, I wonder?

exif   6-12-2010  16:32
In the afternoon?  Sounds fairly late in the afternoon.  Wonder when on the leg that might be?

Teams were seen arriving at the airport around 3pm, then Cheung Chau (this photo) at 4:30pm then Haiphong Rd just after 6:30pm, and possibly running for a ferry sometime in the evening. Information is already in this thread and/or timeline.

From FB:

adstodudum Amazing Race keppendum i nedanjardarlestinni i Seoul i dag.

Which according to Google Translate, this translates to:

assisted Amazing Race competitors in the ground underneath the train in Seoul today.

The poster is from Iceland, but is visiting South Korea.  He has a photo album on his FB of his trip, but I can't tell if he took pictures of the TAR racers.

His friend then commented "hefdu endad i pyongyang an okkar"

which I believe means "they would have otherwise have ended up in Pyongyang" (Nth Korea)


(and no team pics atm, the last photos he uploaded were korea football shirt ones from yesterday)

By the aforementioned source,teams maybe went to Kowloon Park or the mosque near the park.
The pink F/F Team has stayed in the taxi for 5 mins due to the driver don't understand the English.

And one user from Godenforum says he/she takes the ferry on 3:45p.m.  with the teams.
And also the go to  Cheung Po Tsai cave in Cheung Chau.

In the Flight schedule, there is 3 flights to Seoul in airport 14/6  midnight

A reply from discuss forum in HK

Translation: My brother spotted  a  yellow and red route marker on the top of the tram in Sai Wan.

 見到有人話去左灣仔
可能灣仔金紫荊先係pit stop

Translation:
Someone says they spot teams in Wan Chai.Maybe the pit stop is Golden Bauhinia square

Gee, if this is, indeed, the F5 elimination leg rather than the F4 NEL one, I hope that delay wasn't too costly.  Hopefully, it was early enough on the leg that it didn't, but I don't know. . . .

Neither - its for a local race in Toronto.

Here are some other non-TAR, non-TARA tweets - they are not for our race so no need to post them here.

I'm the guy who took the video in Gloucester and yes I knew before I said teh words great Race that the Name was Amazing Race I just happened to mess up.

Any way here are the latest pics-

CBS Amazing Race Orange and Pink Team Aboard Gloucester’s Lady J Lobster Boat-

http://goodmorninggloucester.wordpress.com/2010/05/27/cbs-amazing-race-orange-and-pink-team-aboard-gloucesters-lady-j-lobster-boat/

Many more pics to come

Hope you enjoy!


I know I am about 18 days behind reading the AR17 threads, but the boat I saw in the 7 minute 52 second Gloucester ship parade was clearly named "Lady S". The commentator with the Boston accent (I guess it's Capt. Joe) just saw it wrong. This is inconsequential, but it was not the "lady J." I want to be among those commending Capt. Joe for that super video.
