It's the Best Business Passenger Terminal (百事特商务候机楼).

Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Scheduled to arrive at 5.13am Beijing Time (4.13pm EST), which is right about now. It's not an express train, though, so there could be substantial delays. Nothing as bad as Amtrak though. :lol:

Here is some info about their next destination, Dounan Flower Market:

DouNan Flower Market is located near Chengong, southeast of Kunming. Dou Nan Flower Market is the "heart" of the nation's flowers’ markets as well as one of the biggest flower trade markets all over Asia. Its flower planting base occupies 4 square kilometers, and sells the flowers of more than 50 species and 200 varieties. The volume of business per day reaches 2.5 million RMB.
More than half of China's flowers come from Yunnan, with 80% of those passing through Dounan's market of 5,000 individual flower shops. More than 3 billion stems a year of over 600 different varieties are sold in the city.

There is no FB or Twitter in China. But still worth looking and esp searching blogs for stray encounters with Americans or Europeans!

Next, the Golden Horse & Jade Chicken Archway:

As a landmark of Kunming, the Golden Horse & Jade Chicken Archway is a traditional piece of architecture. The emblem of the city of Kunming is composed of a golden horse and a jade chicken.
Golden Horse & Jade Chicken Archway is not only a place that you can see the fantastic facet of Kunming. The area around it called Golden Horse & Jade Chicken Square is also a commercial center for tourists as well as locals. Here many stores offer handcrafts of various nationalities.
Do not be anxious to find the way there. When you refer to the Golden Horse & Jade Chicken Square, locals will immediately tell you the right way. This landmark is a significant site to them. The civilization contained in this place will cover a splendid color on this ancient architecture.

It's dead smack in the middle of town - they've a good noodle store there! :lol:

Although I'm not sure how the English translation might go through with the locals...

I think this is the general thought at the moment, if I am reading all the threads right.

Leg 1a - Austraila(Los Angeles-Sydney)
TBC--(Cowboys last but no penalties on a TBC for last place)

Leg 1b-Austraila(Sydney-Broken Hill-(rolling pit stop)-Sydney)
Elimination (probably Amanda/Kris)

Leg 2- Japan (Sydney-Toyko)
Elimination (probably Mel/Mike)

Leg 3 - China (Toyko, Japan -Lijiang,China)
NEL  (Kynt/Vyxen last)

Leg 4 -China (Lijiang, China to Kunming,China--now)
Elimination probably

I am sure if I am wrong...there are plenty of people to correct me.

Oh for goodness sake. Call Phil and ask? :lol:

This is a LIVE race! We are very lucky to know where they are today, much less tomorrow!

GP, I don't think any of us anticipated this much insanity in a matter of a few days; and that's without the TAR 17 episode that aired tonight. ;)

I would expect teams to be leaving PS within the next few hours, is there any clue to where they are going?

They have been in Asia for 3 legs now, maybe Europe?

If they continue heading west, Europe is the final continent before heading home

After Europe they could easily stop by Africa or South America before heading back to the US. Not to mention island destinations like Bermuda, the West Indies, Iceland, or Jamaica.
