Also:

There is a comment that she expected to be in Milan by 515 PM
She gave someone her Italian phrasebook, wondered where they would be going.

Sadly, I see no way to contact her...

I looked this over and the "5:15 pm" is definitely a typo.  Her next post, the one after the flight, was made before 5:15 pm July 5th.  So she saw a team on her flight from ADD to MXP that left on July 4th at 11:00 pm and arrived in Milan at 5:10 am on July 5th. 

The really serious implication of this is that it says there is a two day disparity between the Team on her flight and the Teams that were on the flight to AMS from Nairobi !   :ascared

Those Teams landed in AMS at 5:40 am on July 3rd and could have been in Milan as early as 9:30 am that day.

Our children, what are they going to amount to?

Excellent!! This strongly suggests that our "missing link" after Phuket could be Kuala Lumpur!! Great find thanks!

Have asked for more info...

Intriguing!  I'm currently working on an Amazing Race story/game on a different forum -- Reality TV World.  It features previous winners and once I'm finished the story, I'll post it on the Amazing Race Fantasy Games section so you can see it all.  And I had the Final 5 teams travel to Kuala Lumpur!  Talk about a coincidence!  Anyway, I'd like to see the teams in KL.

Surely if it was in such a well-connected city as KL, and in such a popular place as the KLCC, we would have heard more about it? Malaysia is very popular for Amazing-Race style scavenger hunts. I saw one in action last week in Melaka, and saw a poster advertising another one in KL.. It was probably just one of these?

I will be so upset if it Kuala Lumpur turns out to be true. I've been travelling round south-east asia and hoping to see the race, and was in KL for the whole of the last week!

JMO, but I would be very surprised to see a leg in Malaysia. Five consecutive legs in the same area of southeast Asia? And flying from Jakarta to Phuket then back to Kuala Lumpur seems like backtracking to me.  :duno:

Or were you thinking it was just a connection.
Physics alone is not enough.

KLCC is not a airport..it is a shopping area!

All spec so let's go over there?

Hope this is true, but "5 minutes ago" is about 10:10 PM EST which is 4:10 AM. Strange time for a pitstop (unless teams are leaving).

Peach, I had found it and was going to give you the user name and FB page link, but since you found it, I'm not going to post it because I don't want to break any rules.

BU Brussels
The Lugano Leadership Academy is officially underway! Participants start tomorrow with the Amazing Race through Lugano.
4 Jul via LinkedIn

This sounds strange, even though Lugano is in Switzerland, the Leadership Academy belongs to the Boston University Brussels Campus???

Post Datum: Now I realize it is an AR for the Academy Participants only which are sent from Belgium to Switzerland! Case dismissed!

Off topic: Hate it when TAR and TARLA run at the same time and worse, when they air same time, same day, and the episode number even matches!

(finally) Belgium! and they're also going to Lugano, Switzerland as well?  They'd went to that country before on the Unfinished Business edition around last season. :ascared

And if they're really going to Lugano, Switzerland for the 19th season and not on the upcoming TARLA 3 then that city will be the 2nd to the last leg before heading back to the US, and probably the final city for TAR 19 will be somewhere in the Atlantic coast like New York, Miami, Boston, etc.

lol peach..they dont hate you.  glad you found it.  but based on this picture, you have it as "not showing".  you would have had to click "most recent" instead of the default "amazing race".  im guessing that's what you did.

In other words, it's a university-run TAR-style event, not the race itself.

I see the University event in LUGANO, but am NOT seeing anything about Brussels as well...can someone please followup? Not yet convinced one way or another. The timing of the Brussels post seems odd though...

I'm not seeing the Facebook post about the PitStop at the Atomium either.  :duno:

The guy from the University event in Lugano has just posted some pictures from the event and it is clearly NOT our racers.  :(

Yes, but does that race have anything to do with our tweet?
