Two things -- carrying a wooden bed frame while carrying backpacks is going to be physically demanding.

Second, the local costumes are very bright and very colorful. (Purple, orange, aqua or turquoise,are in the caps; it wouldn't surprise me if there are more such colors once the episode is aired.

What about thinking as dressing those costumes clothes? I'd laugh so much if Marcus is seen wearing that, :lol:

Those aren't "costumes" though...those are their clothes.

Sounds like a team with a woman in it is going to be racing to the Pit Stop with an all-guy team.

Weren't we just teased with Armani and Bill and Cathie having a foot race at the end of the last episode. Armani mentioning he respects them, but would out run them.

Sure it could have been some light hearted banter, or production showed it  to plant seeds in our head for this episode?

Well, those caps have a local in the background wearing a bright red jacket, so that's a fourth color. :)

I expect those have something to do with the tobacco grading system...

I'm pretty sure that is the school that the tobacco company built:

Do you have any more caps for the area around 21 & 22? I think this is the place:

There's an open air market nearby ;)

I think you are right too, the building is not an exact match but the windows are pretty distinctive so perhaps we are just seeing it from a different angle??


Good job esp on that school!! :jumpy:

You are right on the other as well...here is another picture that confirms:

I think the school is in Lilongwe proper, not 68 miles away in Kasungu.

In this shot we see Justin & Jennifer at the Detour with Jeremy & Sandy

Google is your best bet. Also try Flickr, Panoramio, and this embassy site. This article explains the "area" system.

Ouch. According to this site, the bales are almost 200 lbs. each. Pushing that around while while bent-over (even slightly) is a great way to ruin your back.

Okay...I am puzzled. The tobcco task is clearly a RB.

BUT we also see racers ALONE at the school, some focused on a task and others in a hurry, while others are playing...

Zac Andy goes running behind Tommy who is casually playing soccer with the little one.

Sandy is doing something with those cartons, we also see the 2 little girls dragging toys made from the (??) same cartons with A/T's  feet behind.

I am most puzzled by Zac running alone... odd to see that except in a RB.

I know we see a Detour Clue in Jeremy's hand... but are we sure that is not the next clue? Or is the school part of the Detour?? ???

And the beds we see on the truck with Marcus and also being carried by by Amani, Jeremy, Sandy, Bill, And Cindy......could deliver the beds be part of the school task?? Or for a clinic?? Maybe there is a Clinic and a school?? :duno: Just thinking out loud.

And then, based on the press release:

Quote
After falling to the back of the pack, a disheartened racer is encouraged by the spirit of the local workers,


That should be Marcus, he is alone with all the Turq coveralled men in the Limbe Tobacco House...which makes me think the Tobacco task could come LAST, giving M/A a chance to get to the back of the pack....

All spec, feel free to chime in here??   :lol:
