38.5

Could these be tibetan prayer flags? Although the colours are not exactly right.




I think we have a winner! When comparing the cap to the picture of these Tibetan Buddhist prayer flags, it is now clear that the horizontal lines and symbols you can see are the same ones as in this picture.

Good job kiki! But what does this mean? Could this imply that production took these HD shots in their pre-race location shooting in Nepal, and that Nepal was the leg that was moved?

Unless this is just one of the caps that's been reused from past seasons..

I think that is the only thing they can be. The Tibetan prayer flags are always blue, green, white, yellow, and orange. I don't see many countries those would be besides Nepal and with the already ongoing spec about Nepal it seems logical to assume that is where the shot was taken.
Physics alone is not enough.

Those who forget history are sure to repeat it.

Wet blanket: the flags were in the TAR 18 intro.
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Well it could always have been shot before TAR18 as well. The Nepal theory is very interesting.

That's why I love this board.

here is the painting of the Hindu God in Varanasi.

The prayer flags might also be from there since there were every kind of flags and banners all over the city, which is considered a holy place for Buddhism too.

That sounds very plausible. In fact I just did a quick google on 'Varanasi prayer flags', and the top result was this http://blog.travelpod.com/travel-photo/wareameye/30/1295348094/25_varanasi.jpg/tpod.html

They look just like the ones in the intro, so I would say that this settles the issue.

I have been looking for this for years and I finally got it.  Credit goes to Rick Steve's  :lol:

It's not in Season 19's intro.  It was last seen in the 18 intro:  Beachy Head Lighthouse  (Image Reference)

I got a lucky break on this screen cap.

Can you see the four tight ropes set up for Panama?   :jam:

Nice spot! And with likely 4 teams remaining at this point, I hope we see all four racing across them at the same time!
