Correct me if i am wrong, but this is the first time in a long time that we start in Asia first. i am so accustomed to asia being near the end of the race! this is awesome.
Let's see, west bound starts include:
* TAR10: Seattle --> Beijing
* TAR15: LA --> Tokyo (on the Wasabi Tour)
* TAR18: LA --> Sydney
and now this.
There are a handful of south bound starts:
* TAR2: Brazil
* TAR3: Mexico
* TAR5: Uruguay
* TAR7: Peru
* TAR9: Brazil
* TAR11: Ecuador
* TAR13: Brazil
* TAR16: Chile
I personally think going west bound is the easiest from the jet lag point of view - as long as you can sleep on an airplane. Especially with this flight that is in the air right now
, they get their sleep, they land, and it's morning.
And by the way, GREAT WORK, Chateau
(and at least I can say that I participated in the "process of elimination" - no pun intended!
