I've been doing a bit of research and I'm starting to think that if the race ends in Houston, the penultimate leg will be in Mexico City. Mexico is loooooonng overdue and hasn't been visited since TAR 3!!! Also, there are tons of direct flights from Mexico City to Houston. And Mexico City is easily accesible from South America or Europe.

I'm starting to like you. (Pure speculation, hahaha.)

In case such miracle happens, and if the 50 plus people now lost somewhere in Africa ever get out of there and into Europe or South America, then the most likely candidate city in Mexico, afterwards, would be Cancun. I insist this is almost impossible but it has been my wish for almost a decade.

CUN has non-stop flights from most of Europe and South America and into almost anywhere-USA. It is an airport where you can see the most unthinkable airliners parked side by side as can be ArkeFly NL and TACA SV, Frontier US and Cubana CU, Transaero RU and Mayan Island Air BZ or Jet Blue US and Magnicharters MX; not to mention a bunch of legacy carriers from all over.

Doubt it as Mexico is on the current travel warnings list for US Citizens.

Dear RedWings,

I get to read this same old story every season and I still don't understand it as it also applied to Season 3. So let me explain:

Back in Season 3 (2002) when they visited at least 2 states and the Federal District in the country, Mexico was then also in the American Black List; as usually are the US in the Mexican Black List: http://guiadelviajero.sre.gob.mx/ ...and this has been almost permanent since the Mexican-American War of 1847.

Nevertheless TAR S03 came to Mexico in 2002.

I now have to guess that the avoiding of Mexico only happens with WRP as with, our without, our very well liked TAR, Mexico was, is and will likely remain, among the Top 10 most visited countries in the world: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tourism with over 20 million Americans visiting every year: http://www.cnn.com/2012/03/09/travel/mexico-travel-spring-break/index.html with or without the warnings, as CNN explains.

If WRP wants to go by unsustainable warnings, let them be free to do so: It is their responsibility, to their people and to their government, but in the meanwhile please let the world know that even with all of the bad press, Mexico is safer for Americans than any big city in their own country:

Each year, about ONE in every 155,000 visiting Americans dies in ALL of Mexico from ANY cause; JUST IN Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Pop.: 165,000, there are about SEVEN Americans deceased -by murder only- every year.

The probabilities of something bad happening to TAR racers in Mexico are lower than those of you winning the $579 million Powerball jackpot last night.

Did you win at least a part of it?

If so, lets celebrate and I will invite you to one of TARLA1's most beautiful roadblock sites in Mexico: http://www.blueparrot.com, but if you didn't then please let old news just get older. Gracias.

I love Mexico (one of my top three places in the world!) but I'm afraid the reasons you cited, Xarles, is why TAR doesn't like to go to Mexico! Too many Americans go there, so it's, under some strange reasoning, considered "not exotic enough" for viewers. Same thing why Canada's always given a miss...

I sure hope TAR gets to cover more of North America (even within the US)!
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

I agree with you, Neobie and Leafsfan. But also, I had never thought of the hype that TAR can cause in Mexico among both, Mexicans and Americans. It could be like having 500 RFFers on your back!  :lol3:  A big difference from Season 3, when TAR could easily be ignored and there was not much social media. Probably it is the same for Canada.

Could we be now looking at a Botswana-Kenya-Switzerland route?

LX 293   
SWISS    12:20 AM    1:35 AM       6:25 AM    7:22 AM       Landed
  57 min ago    333   

If that route is right, Phil might have taken this flight from Nairobi to Zurich.

I think that has to do with a large local race in Johannesburg a few days ago. If you search on #arfc10, you'll get a bunch of tweets and pictures of people in costume and of a big bunch of helium balloons carrying a cow (hopefully fake) through the air.
