My husband was picking someone up at the airport in Lilongwe, Malawi today at 12:30 pm local time (flight from Joburg) and spotted Amazing Race production crew in the airport and teams coming off the plane, trying to get taxis.

Welcome malawiafrica!  Can you ask your husband if he knows for sure which plane he saw the teams get off?  There was a South African plane and a Kenya Airways plane both at about the same time at Lilongwe airport.

From Facebook:

On the shores of Lake Malawi watching The Amazing Race contestants coming in. Classic.
56 minutes ago

Someone else (His sister as it turns out) is asking where he's at, but I don't recognize the name.

The poster is listed as being from Durban, but said Tuesday he was on the Zambezi headed for Livingston.

From reading his Twitter timeline he may have also been on that flight from South Africa. Could be further confirmation that teams were coming from Johannesburg.

One of his previous tweets:

From twitter:

It also seemed like amazing race was filming. could be the asian version, we talked to a team with a chinese girl wearing yellow #irony LOL
39 minutes ago

just came back from holiday to cyprus. nicosia was awesome.
41 minutes ago

This person is listed as being from Ankara Turkey. I would guess the sighting was in Cyprus. The team wearing yellow at LAX does have an Asian woman so I think this is very credible info.

Cyprus! Or maybe Turkey!  :hearts:

However, I should point out that these are the first two tweets this person has sent since August 2009 so maybe we (I?) shouldn't get too carried away just yet. I'm also wondering if the teams could have gotten from Malawi to Cyprus this fast.

I found a blog post by someone who flew with some of the teams from Johannesburg to Malawi.

The amazing race to Malawi?
The Amazing Race
When I arrived at my terminal to leave Johannesburg, there were approximately 5 guys with massive cameras, and perhaps the same number with large fuzzy mikes.  I was curious, but didn't say anything. On the plane, before I switched seats, I was talking to the girls I was sitting next to. They were headed to help their mom with a literacy project, getting oral stories written down in Chichewa.  We were saying how curious we were about the cameras, so I asked the guys what the were filming. They said that they were filming "a travel show.  It's going to be on tv eventually, but I don't know what channel."  That was enough to satisfy my curiosity. But there was a group of teenagers on a mission trip, and somehow they came to the conclusion that it was the amazing race. After I switched seats (there was a lot of seat switching going on), I was sitting next to a girl named Lisa from Holland, and a guy named Andy from Lake Tahoe.  We all ended up talking and sharing food from our meals (which were delicious) with each other.  It turns out this Andy guy was grouped with the camera people, and as soon as the plane landed, he was off as quickly as possible.  My cousin Ryan asked someone later, and it was the amazing race. I wonder what they'll be doing in Malawi...this is my second time bumping into them (first was in Seattle two years ago).  Maybe I should start watching that show!

Yeah, that's what I thought. It must've been a hoax, because now they deleted their account.  :duno:

I like Greece, and the italy, albania and turkey, malta, cyprus and spain in meditteranean. Lulu have been here 6 months.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Laiki Yitonia is a borough in Nicosia, Larnaca is where the airport is located, the actual temperature in Nicosia now is 30 Celsius and Makarios Avenue and Stassicratous are certainly in Nicosia.

The tweeter is based in Greece and seems that they flew from Majorca into Larnaca/Nicosia Cyprus this morning.

I don't like that this "sighting" in Cyprus is from someone that began tweeting only 19 hours ago, but to tweet for 19 hours and build up a -somehow- credible story still leaves me with doubts...
