It looks like it might be a part of Albert Hall/Museum. Move the camera around here to see if there's a matching viewpoint.

Are there any plans to at least merge the US TAR Google Earth Map files into one file?

As to other editions, I'd wouldn't mind one file per version (merging all the season files of each version), but at a minimum I'd would love to have TAR US as one file to download.

Great work GB!

I've got a few updates, especially for the earlier seasons (only worked back to TAR 12 for now)! Among them:
- The gold-mining and dancing village in Burkina Faso in TAR 12
- The auto-rickshaw yard in Delhi, chicken farm in Kazakhstan, and military camp in Moscow in TAR 13
- The boatyard in Bangkok and swimming pool in Beijing in TAR 14
- The dynamite testing grounds in Sweden in TAR 15
- The farm in Puerto Varas and the bull-lasso restaurant in Bariloche in TAR 16
- The antenna/coffin Detour in Accra and water-pumping station in Oman in TAR 17
- The Detour village on Lake Malawi in TAR 19
- The cattle corral in Buenos Aires in TAR 20
- The rafting locations in Sabah in TAR 24

Hope this helps!
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Not sure how to do this properly (e.g. attach .kmz files), but here, on Google Street View, is GK Teahouse (TAR12, Leg 10 - Taiwan). It's a chain, but this is the one they visited.

After that, they had to find a clown. Here is where they found him. (Being daytime in this image, most of the stalls haven't been set up.)

Then they go to Youth Park and walk barefoot along a health path, covered with small, rounded stones (which can cause pain!). It's hard to see, but it's right in the middle of the image to the right of the end of the path leading into the park.

Updated through Race 10, and combined into one KMZ and one annotations pdf (by popular demand).  Some updates from previous submissions; for example I think I have some pretty good evidence as to where the old bridge on Mueng Kut (Race 2) was (note the past tense, as it would no longer exist). 

I probably am going to leave it at this, because Neobie will surely finish TAR 11 before I can.  He does some amazing work and anything I would do that he's already done would likely be redundant at best.

Perhaps I will spend the time instead searching for Ban Plai Pong Pang.

Never been very happy with where I've located that pitstop, and reviewing the episode again makes me less confident.  It would seem to me that there should be more buildings in the area.  And boats carrying Mary / Peach and Oswald / Danny are shown in a leftward bend of the river, though that might not be immediately after departing as is suggested.

Any location I've found is subject to revision on further examination.

Sorry, I meant to say that someone previously had found it. I can't remember who, it might have been Neobie.
