Yes. And as a matter of fact, the last babushka we saw was the lady who handed cards to the teams in Russia S13. (random info? :lol:)

Methinks, another race in "drag" like the Netherlands leg in Season 15
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

Resources: Yandex offers a superior-resolution street view of St. Petersburg, but there's no English interface. The controls are at the top-right: the binocular button toggles the street view; the drop-down box on the right lets you choose map, satellite, or hybrid; and sharing-links are created in the field above (circled).

There may be a Switchback of sorts, but it doesn't appear to be caviar.  The glimpse of the piano seemed like it was similar to TAR 10 Ukraine detour with the sheet music; there might be another similar task that I can't place at the moment as well.

It seems to me the idea of the Switchback is same location, same task as a previous season -- neither would apply here.

A conservatory, perhaps? And the word on the screen, as best I can translate it, is "surrendered." A Potemkin reference, maybe? I haven't seen the whole film.

This shot was taken between 3:35 and 4:05 pm (assumes June 5th).



So it looks like the first clue in St Petersburg is the spoiler clue of teams spotted at St. Isaac's Cathedral (based on the flight arrival time of 1:33 pm).

I think the film and the piano task are detour choices while the Babushka task is the roadblock. (just speculation)

The babuska task is planting potatos........with apologies to Dan Quale.



The Hermitage Museum complex. From left to right: Hermitage Theatre – Old Hermitage – Small Hermitage – Winter Palace (the "New Hermitage" is situated behind the Old Hermitage). (bold is from Wikipedia) The "front" of The Hermitage faces the river and the "back" faces the square and the General Staff Building. The public entrance is in the courtyard to the Winter Palace.

Chateau......the pic you posted is of the General Staff Building...across the square from the Winter Palace. Part of it is used as part of The Hermitage. There are actually 6 buildings used for The Hermitage Museum. In that respect, it is very similar to our Smithsonian Museum in DC.

Yup. I agree. I think the Detour is the Piano and the Film.

This may be redundant information, but I'm giving what I can give. The word on the screen behind Thomas can be transliterated as "Sdalas" (without the last letter. I forgot what it stands for). Random info? :lol:

Thanks Cocoa! I think "sdalas" means "surrendered".
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Yup. I agree. I think the Detour is the Piano and the Film.

I can't decide yet -- I can't tell from the caps whether we have both teammates performing the manure task or the film task. The piano task is definitely a detour option.
