Er, does that mean Kent/Vyxsin will be safe because they are quarreling in Japan, not China.

Or are they using Japan's map in China? *scratches head*

The scenes with Kent & Vyxsin are obviously from japan. They are driving on the right side of the road and also we know that in China they are going by train from Kunming to Lijiang and then they are going around the old town probably on foot.

As for them being safe, didn't the witnesses say that this leg is a NEL?

Yes, kikisak, spoilers indicate that Kynt and Vxysin will be NEL'ed in Lijang.
If they are driving the wrong way in Japan, then they may board a later flight to China than anyone else.

Maybe kenshan or one of his buddies can tell us where this is.........



Is it on the way from Tokyo to Minamia-Shigaga in the afternoon? Or is it from Tokyo to Narita in the moring?

Vyxen does have a map for "Access to Narita".

I was wondering that myself, Doc. The lack of road signs poses a problem for us, but maybe our friends in Japan can help us. :js:

Kynt and Vyxsin's car looks like car #8. There are nine teams, if they picked those up in order they were already behind. I am thinking they will be behind the whole time.

The car numbers have no significance except that they match the team's number they get at the beginning of the season.

Spruce Plateau     in Lijiang, Yunnan
 
In fact Spruce Meadow is a vast grassland in the virgin spruce forest. During each period between spring and summer the grassland is delightfully green and the flowers are pleasantly beautiful. From a distance, the Spruce Meadow looks like a jade green blanket in the ranges of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain.

According to the legend, the Spruce Meadow is the place where the first pair of lovers of Naxi nationality died of love. If you come here you can have the chance to witness the mighty thousand-year-old glacier on the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, the fantasticality and quietness of virgin forest and the amazing songs and dance of Naxi nationality. You will be warmly welcomed by Naxi people.

Yes, kikisak, spoilers indicate that Kynt and Vxysin will be NEL'ed in Lijang.
If they are driving the wrong way in Japan, then they may board a later flight to China than anyone else.

Everyone is entitled to their own interpretation, but this seems obvious to me:
1. Kent is driving a right-side steering wheel car. That is possible only in Japan, as several before me have pointed out.
2. Although it may appear that Kent is driving in the right-hand lane and thus vulnerable to oncoming traffic on a 3 lane road, it is pretty obvious that the car ahead of him in that lane is going the same way as he is. That means it is one-direction travel on half of a 6 lane expressway.
