I think I found the answer for the last sighting in July in Kuala Lumpur. It apparently was the Italian version of Pekin Express called Pechino Express. Pechino is Italian for Beijing. I started a topic for Pechino Express and there's more info there. However, so far, I haven't found the people in the sighting in the numerous pictures of Pechino Express that are out there. I haven't looked very carefully yet though.

It's been a while, but I have a couple of sightings from today that I can't figure out. Most likely both are local events. I'm not aware of any version filming right now except perhaps TAR China which films a leg or two then takes a couple of weeks off it seems. I thought I'd post them here and see if anyone has any insights that escape me.

last night at LAX one of the women working behind the counter where you check your bags was holding Amazing Race envelopes...
7:33 AM - 3 Aug 2015


From her tweets, it appears that Katherine was flying from LAX to the east coast, probably Boston, since she's from Rhode Island. It seems like an odd place for teams to be picking up envelopes (just before boarding a flight), but who knows what a foreign version might decide to do. Maybe it's just additional information. I'm thinking this is before you go through security, so it's possible that a local race could send teams there to get their next clue. I can't imagine that LAX would appreciate the extra traffic though.

Then there's this one:

Taping earlier for The Amazing Race with @Jonas_Tibayan @SamBanezz @RafaeloTHORibio @OczonMiguel and John
4:00 AM - 3 Aug 2015


From their twitter accounts, it appears that they are members of the Chiang Kai Shek College basketball team in Manila. They won the Metro Manila Basketball League championship back in February. I see nothing in any of the tweets that are public that would cast any light on the taping. I'm guessing it's something local or possibly TAR Philippines though I haven't heard anything about them taping a new season.

Any thoughts are welcome.

Here's another TAR mystery sighting. It's from a woman from the US visiting Budapest. I've tried to get more details from her, but she's only giving out a few details. I'm not aware of any versions of TAR currently filming. Most likely it's a local race, but it remains uncertain. Whether they are aware enough in Budapest to organize local races is another question.

@juliaaa0606 The Amazing Race was in Budapest? The real one with cameramen? Big fan here. Where did you see them and what were they doing?

@Plaidmoon I saw them outside the Fisherman's Bastion and they were just standing there looking around 😂


She has since taken down her reply about Fisherman's Bastion and hasn't replied further.

Fisherman's Bastion is a castle or castle like building with 7 towers on the Buda side of the Danube River. It was used as a pit stop during TAR 6.
