This is a video I took at the Embera village (Parara Puru) where they are welcoming the arrival of group of visitors from Curacao.

In one of the scene it seems like Ernie/Cindy are running towards the dancers when Amani is already there, does that mean Marcus/Amani are ahead of E/C at that point?

In Panama I went to the Plaza de la Idependencia of Casco Viejo because it was shown in the opening credits.



Which, when reversed look like this (thanks to Peach):



Those dresses, BTW, are the national dress of Panama:   Pollera

You can buy little dolls with the Pollera dresses:



There was a greeter for our Transit of the Panama Canal and she was wearing the Pollera too!





We know from this preview that the clue is written on the dress:



This was what I was trying to get at in this post:  Panama Viejo

I think that the clue to the next location is written in the design of the dress!  The last five letters are: V - i - e - j - o

I can't make out the preceding letters, but Viejo is enough of a clue to make an educated guess:

The next location (or maybe even the Pit Stop) is Panama Viejo


<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/eNKhXqCea-A?version=3&amp;amp;hl" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/eNKhXqCea-A?version=3&amp;amp;hl</a>

The location of Panama Viejo is perfect for the Pit Stop.  Also, the time of day that racers were there is consistent with it being the last thing they do.

When I went there, there were Panama Hat vendors in the Plaza de la Idependencia of Casco Viejo who were present on July 9th who got to see the Teams search for the clue.  It was very amusing to them.  I showed the pictures of the remaining 4 Teams to get identification.  I even threw in some Teams we know were not there.  And the hat guys said those people were not not there.  So that checks out!  I know I'm rambling on here so I will cut to the chase.

Tommy & Andy left the Plaza de la Idependencia 2 hours after the other three teams.

The final three are:  Marcus & Amani, Jeremy & Sandy, Ernie & Cindy

OMG I LOVE YOU CHATEAU!!

BEST NEWS! I mean I love Andy and Tommy as people and racers since they enjoy the tasks so much. But a famous person should never win TAR. I firmly believe it;s for the average person who couldn't go on a journey of a lifetime on their own!!
Best of luck to the final 3!

So Amani & Marcus are not famous people  ???  :lol:

Anyway...WOW...this will be a real coup de théâtre :ascared
So, if its thrue, Andy & Tommy will have the highest average of teams that dont go in the final 3

You are awesome Château  ;)

Probably the biggest collapse since Rob and Amber's second go-around.  While it kind of sucks, it really doesn't. The other teams were more exciting throughout the race.  Andy & Tommy were awesome too, but after a decade-plus of TAR, the other teams fit into that factor of some excitement that you'd either love or you'd love-to-hate.

JMO. And FTR, half of Andy & Tommy's wins occurred thanks to some minor mistakes from the other teams.  Can't really blame A/T for them, but the one that nailed Ernie & Cindy was, IMO, complete BS.  Then another win was a close call after the express pass was used.  Again, not A/T's fault, but also not as impressive as some of the past teams in the earlier and more difficult courses.
Every reality star is someone's favorite

Winning isn't everything, but it isn't considered nothing either. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a tribal council, a pit-stop, a boardroom, dimming of the lights, and so on

I really like Andy/Tommy but a team of 2 professional male athletes seems inherently unfair. I wish them well. They've come in first so many times and won a lot of prizes so their time wasn't wasted. :)

See update on the windstorm above  :ascared

Back to Panama:  My guide Anne Gordon (Embera website)  who has done quite a lot of filming work had not heard a peep about WRP going to one of the Embera villages.  However, she did hear about some thing very interesting; and at the same time a little disappointing!  She said there were rumors of an American film company asking to set up a zipline going over the Panama Canal !   :hoot:

Dang!  Too bad that did not get approved!  So instead we have the highwire across the San Francisco Bay Towers.
