And the Pound Cotton half of the Detour was on the rooftop just across the street!

It took Abbie & Ryan 23 minutes to get from the Fish vendor (fish found at 10:50) to the Pound Cotton Detour and start sewing the mattress:  11:13 on her watch

Teams had an astonishingly punishing trip to make to get to the Pit Stop from the Kawran Bazaar area:  1st they had to taxi to Kholamura Ghat which is across the river  :ascared 

Kholamura Ghat was where Gary & Will spoke to Rob & Kelly from the riverbank in the preview.

Then it was about 1.5 miles on foot :groan:  from Swari Ghat to Shyam Bazaar Chan Mia Ghat.

That was a killer physical leg   :ascared

That's why when Gary & Will passed by Trey & Lexi at the boat intersection, they were like "Oh gee, we're dead.." or something like that..

There are screencaps in the episode that give us 2 places, and the Truckers see them...so we prob CAN get it!

And I need a MAP again, lol.  :please:

Peach, I was confused as to where you had found Ryan's insightful comments when I went to his blog and couldn't find an entry there (Surabaya was the last blog entry.) I then realized that he must have had a Facebook entry (with a link from his website) and I found it there.

For everybody else's benefit the url is https://www.facebook.com/theryandanz. And I agree, Ryan's written comments insights have been among the best I've seen out of 21 seasons of Racers.

You don't have to go to Facebook to get Ryan's travel journal. It is available at www.ryandanz.com

apskip, the comments quoted by Peach weren't on Ryan's official site at the time, they were on his public Facebook page.
