I don't feel so safe usering the tweeters name, so I've blocked it out for now...







This was apparently the first team there:

I imagine this is a TAR Austraila sighting in Istanbul. From Twitter:

It's definitely Istanbul. At the back of the picture you can see the dome of Agia Sofia. It's one of the biggest christian churches turned mosque and now it's a museum and it's in the center of the city.

The airline flight teams will have had to take to go nonstop today from Dubai to Istanbul are:

TK761 0549 0608
TK713 0735 1003

A flight that is too late to allow teams to be spotted in daylight in Istanbul is EK121 1513 1757.

The word Itimat on the sign in the background is Turkish and means trusted or confidence. I can't quite make out the other words on the sign, but the hits that come up when I do a search suggest that it is a travel agency or perhaps a bus company. It does look like there might be the tops of buses in the background.

All this info is from the fabulous blog of Snaps & Blabs! Thank you so much to Geri for all this info! http://snapsandblabs.com/blog/8747/amazing_race_india

This is where the info begins:

Quote
There were flags on each side of the gate leading to the grassy area, where a whole film crew is waiting.

Quote
Then horns start blowing, the band awakes and two tourist looking women pop out of the little gate, run down the stairs and through the field.

Quote
The contestants arrive and then stop at the mat. After which the cameras are stopped and it could take a few minutes before they film the part where the host is telling them how they have done. In this time they are set up, positioned, people are talking and discussing something. One time the next contestants started arriving before they had filmed those before them the band started playing and Grant Bowler, the neurotic looking host, started waving hands, shouting and running towards them until they stopped in a classic screeching halt.

Quote
What surprise me is that they all arrived within a few minutes of each other.

Quote
The last couple arrived and this is when it really became strange. They ran and stepped on the mat, then the cameras were turned off and after a few minutes they still havent filmed the announcing part.

Quote
By now we have moved closer to the final couple a young woman and man still waiting, although allowed to take their backpacks off.

Thanks to Geri we now know these were our leg winners, a F/F team!

Good find! Could well be TAR Aus 2 as they are heading towards Europe.

Heee! We have our first images of our Pink twins!  :yess:

Thank you SO much to Jani for her photos and info, which can be found here at her wonderful blog!: http://hoosierlifeindubai.blogspot.com/2011/11/meydans-amazing-race.html

All of this was filmed at Meydan, Dubai!

Quote
Would you believe that The Amazing Race (Australian) was being filmed right there at Meydan, before our very eyes! 

Quote
We saw two teams
 (Ladies in Pink) & (Two Really, Really Nice Young Men) run into Meydan where they sat in the grass, mingled with the locals, watched a couple of races, received their next clue ....and ran off again!

Quote
I actually walked up to them and asked if the rumor  that they were with The Amazing Race was true. One of the Ladies in Pink replied, "No, no we aren't," then looked away. (She didn't dare look me in the eye and lie!) Then one of the Two Really, Really Nice Young Men, behind the (lying) Lady in Pink, smiled and winked several times! BINGO!!



After talking to Jani, we've also found out:

Quote
The first of my photos was taken on 11/25/11 at 3:26PM and the last one (when the pink ladies ran off) was at 5:40PM.  I would say it was probably a good half hour before I walked down and started taking pictures.  A friend of mine went down before me. She says there was another team -- a girl with red hair and a guy.

Images can be found in three posts below :tup:
