I've never seen The Amazing Race, but I understand that this building was on that show (so my apologies to those of you who already know all the details). The building, designed by Hiroshi Hara, is 40 stories tall.

It's kinda impossible for route info? or actual task? I'm not sure this. :duno:

Amazing Race 12, Leg 10.


oops sorry Paldog! You beat me to it!

EVERYONE Please note!!

BLOGS are different from Tweets. Tweets are meant to go out to the world, they are not private.

Blogs are an author's property. They BELONG to someone.

They should be considered as copyrighted material.

RFF tries to be very responsible in crediting owners and their work.

We make EVERY effort to contact the owner of the blog and ask for permission to use their story and their pictures before using them. Most blog owners are very generous with sharing. BUT we always ask first.

Sometimes there is no way to contact a blogger, in that case we credit them, and LINK to their work.

SO please, check in with me before doing anything except linking to a blog? I can tell you where we stand with contacting the authors, or if it is new to us.

We all get excited with a new find, but ask okay? Thanks!!
 
Oval actually found the Osaka blog ...and we have been waiting (sorta) patiently to hear from them! SO hope they don't mind us Jumping the gun!

So far I've been to Hiroshima where I saw the Peace Memorial Museum and Itsukushima Shrine. Then Kobe where I had Kobe beef and a somewhat amusing experience with a power outage in the hotel. Today I've been in Osaka where I went to Osaka Castle where we coincidentally saw the filming of The Amazing Race at a distance and went shopping at some places. We're planning to go to an onsen tonight.

^_^ Greetings. I'm the author of Nippwnd and by all means, you're welcome to use my stuff if you link back to my blog. I was pretty hyped when I saw the team racing. I really wasn't able to figure out much about what was going on in the race except for what you can see in the pictures though.

Thanks to Ricardo Cabral (ncabral on Flickr) for permission to post these photos. The photos were taken at Centro Cultural Recoleta on November 30 according to his camera. I asked him if he saw any teams and he said no... but I think one photo suggests otherwise. :cmas16





If you look in the background to the middle-left area, you can see cameras and lights... or that's what I think it is. Not sure if it's related to The Amazing Race. But more importantly, if you look towards the middle-right area, you can see a possible team.



I think it might be the same team spotted by indietravel. The blue shirts, black pants and blue backpacks look like they match... That is, if the "team" in this photo is actually a team. :cmaslol

Thanks so much Linkkums! We loved your sighting...many thanks for checking in with us. If you can think of anything at all it would be a help! Were you able to see what happened to the team with Phil after they talked? DId they run off, hang around, wander off, escorted off by production? Did you see any other teams come in after that one?

Nice work Polaroid!! Thank him for us please!

What do you think that "team" was doing? Odd to see them just hang out, usually that does not happen so wonder what we are seeing?

Lurker for TAR 20, first time posting...Not sure how to do this, but I found a picture at a forum I frequent of Brendon and Rachel in an airport, probably post TAR. It doesn't have any signs of the race, so I wasn't sure if it was worth posting here, but just thought I'd pipe in.

ETA: Oops, saw in another thread after I posted this that someone else had already found and posted the pic.

Polaroid, good work on finding those pictures from Buenos Aires! I took a look through Ricardo's photostream and there appears to be one more image taken with the others. I can save it, so here's the link:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/ncabral/6552495217/in/photostream/

It doesn't appear to show any teams, but maybe others will see something in it.

In one of the pic's you see a team in blue.  There are a couple others that be might suspect to be a team.  This could be between teams showing up and Phil kicking back waiting for another team?  Could be after the PS and teams waiting for transportation to their rest accomodations?

This is the Law Enforcement team from LA.

Their clothing theme was/is turquoise.

For me to have anything for the live sightings thread, it's very unusual, but I just received a Google Blog Alert that makes reference to a possible elimination station location.

I'm just going to post the blog link sent to me in the alert (and not quote the blog itself)
http://www.datalounge.com/cgi-bin/iowa/ajax.html?t=11173285#page:showThread,11173285

The timing is a bit confusing, and I don't know if any other editions of TAR were being filmed that might have used that location, since we know TAR 20 finished before Christmas.

Pretty sure that this year's ES was in Mexico...possibly the same place used before in TAR 16 when we saw JJ at the local parade?

The timing is off, can't imagine any logo'd items being used though...maybe a local attempt to cash in somehow? :duno:

Thanks!!

Thanks to Peach for helping clarified the picture

It was December 2nd in LAX : Team Dave & Rachel  :tup:




He also gave some insight about what was going on at the moment :

Quote

Feel free to share/use the picture.  I saw all of the teams.  I was waiting a flight for Australia as they were coming into the terminal.  I was waiting in line with a couple of young ladies, I believe they called themselves Team Orange. As a big fan of the show, it was pretty exciting to see.  Unfortunately, I only took the one picture.

i'm curious why they are assumed to be racers...?

And they make it to Osaka!!

That's a great pic and good info, ZouLY. I'm confused though. We have photographs of a pitstop in Asuncion, Paraguay on 12/1 and then at a pitstop in Turin, Italy on 12/4. 

Since Team Orange (presumably the Tanaka sisters with orange bandanas), and Dave and Rachel Brown were both present in the original LAX pics taken on 11/26, is it possible that these pics were also taken on 11/26, maybe just posted on 12/2?

The fact that this photographer and our original photographer (@horchataa) were both flying to Australia leads me to suspect even more that this may have been the case.

We had a leg between day 1 and 4...almost sure. Why they would stop for 2 days...?
