A trip down the Luangwa would be fantastic to see! I've trekked down it myself, albeit on the Zambia side and can safely say there will be no shortage of fantastic scenery, though there isn't exactly a lot of practical things to do for tasks along the way!

As far as possible European destinations go, I think we can safely rule out Greece. The protexts over the EU austerity plan have become sufficiently chaotic that I wouldn't deem it safe for the teams or production.

I'm kind of surprised that TAR is working with a tobacco company in Malawi but the Limbe Leaf website (shown in the Live Sightings thread) shows them to be doing "social responsibility" work - raising trees for farmers to plant and donating supplies to children, that sort of thing. That could be the tie-in here. We may see TAR help build a school or something like that. That might mean staying an extra day here to give something back to Malawi.

Or maybe they will just go to a warehouse and count bundles of tobacco.  :lol:

This page lists the Limbe facility (as well as other tobacco firms) at the Kanengo industrial park north of town. The teams might be processing tobacco, or they could just be shuffling stuff around for the auction floor. Some background here.

I found this posted on a Fb page a few days ago and sent to Peach.  She suggested to post it (hope this is the right spot!) to see if anyone in that area might know if it's something relevant to maybe ES .. or just a local thing.  Thanks.  :)

"Amazing Race in Baguio City! :D

am sooo happy!"

And she posted it sometime on Saturday .. July 2nd.

i don't know if that's a part of TAR 19 or a rumor about the upcoming of The Amazing Race Philippines or just a hoax? :duno:

topaz,

The longest an amazing Race has done in one transportation leg is I think the Argentina to Moscow approximately 7000 miles in AR5. The thought of going from Europe to the Philippines, a bit further, is not credible at all.

Panama City's a regional air hub, it could be anywhere within the general region.

There are only two airports in Europe that serve PTY, and no others in Panama as far as I can tell, and both of these routes arrived early in the evening, so this is an unlikely route.

PTY is the busiest airport in Central America. So the most logical assumption is that if indeed the preceding leg was European, that they flew on a connecting flight through either the US (is this possible in the race?), Mexico or South America (though I'd imagine this would be the long way round).

Direct flights to Panama City, Panama from Europe via Amsterdam or Madrid. These flights arrive approx 3-6:00pm, (1500-1800h). Other alternate intineraires, depending on when WRP wants them to arrive in Panama City, with intermediate stopovers outside the US at Toronto, Cancun or Mexico City.

Hillerød, nearby to Copenhagen, is no doubt for a visit to the Frederiksborg Palace

While Panama isn't new for the US TAR, the prior visit was the Family Edition, so......

I'd more or less treat it as a "new" country along with Denmark. Denmark has been on my target list since the early days, and I'm glad to see that one show up as well.

But I am surprised to see Panama to Atlanta as the final leg. When you check flights, Miami or New Orleans could logically be used as one-stop direct flights to get through immigration before arriving in Atlanta. And from what I understand Delta has a ton of flights from Latin America to Atlanta, which ought to make the final flight as well as the sequester flights quite interesting.

Now that the location is known, I found some information that strongly suggests that an American TV show was filming at Fredriksborg Palace on July 4th. I wonder which show that was?  :)

Update:
What I found was the story that Caper had already found and is posted over in the Live Sightings thread.
