Great that Bali seems to be next, both The Amazing Race Asia and The Amazing Race Australia had cool legs there!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think that the startline off the TAR22 is a perfect pick, just hope that it is the last Los Angeles start!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love The Amazing Race, The Apprentice and Survivor.

Several teams apparently on an AIRNZ flight from Auckland to Christchurch landing within the next 30 minutes.  Will keep an eye out, interesting the fact that Christchurch has had the major Earthquake recently yet bouncing back incredibly fast.

Witnessed the first 4-5 teams arrive in CHCH at 7pm Sunday night (18/11/12) despite searching for clues within Christchurch found nothing, would guess they drove somewhere in the Canterbury Region. Not much left in Christchurch post earthquake except roadworks.

Slowhatch,
Somehow I have gotten through life so far and many Scrabble games without knowing that the word "demonym" existed. For those who like me did not know, its definition is "name given to people of a place." An example is "American."

Thanks to Ovalorange's Hanoi sightings...  :hoot:


I can now confirmed the Location of one of the task that appeared in that picture :





Took place at the Temple of Literature in Hanoi,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temple_of_Literature,_Hanoi


the big metal dragon bowl statue and the swan-cut bonsai tree gave away the clue for the location :









and highlight of the task is :

Human chess (“cờ người”), which is the favorite one to a large number of Vietnam people.

Quote
Human chess is a variant of chess, often played by people who take on the roles of the various chess pieces (king, knight, bishop and so on). This is typically done on an outdoor field, with the squares of the board marked out on the grass. A move resulting in a piece being taken from the board will cause a choreographed fight to be played out to determine whether the piece is actually taken.

Human chess played in Vietnam follows the general rules of Chinese chess. The concept is recognizably similar to Western chess, but with a different-sized board and different pieces, including cannons and guards, each of them marked with a distinct Chinese character. In the game, there are 32 people in all. One side consists of 16 boys and the other of 16 girls. Each team wears a different colour.

The chessboard is marked by paint on flat ground. Village festivals usually use the yard in front of a communal house or pagoda or a nearby field. Organisers select players plus a referee well in advance. All should be children of families with a good reputation. The referee and the two generals should come from wealthier families so they can treat their players to food. As the selection finishes, the referee convenes the 32 people, describes the costumes, and tells each person how to move as a chess piece. Players may sit on chairs and wear hats if it is sunny. They either wear boards with the Chinese names of their pieces or carry sign poles with the characters. The generals wear traditional costumes. The two contestants who direct the pieces have their own seats outside the board.

The atmosphere often become bustling with the human chess competition. In the early morning, many people gather and wait for the competition. There is often three drum-rolls signaling the start of the game. Two players in Vietnamese traditional dresses appeared, sitting on two high platforms behind chessmen. The first player starts the game by shouting and a chessman left the position to perform martial arts techniques before reaching another position on the chessboard. The second player’s turn, he also shouts and his chessman moves and performs beautiful skills of martial arts. They in turn play the game. If one of them lost his chessmen, these have to leave the chessboard. The spectators triumphantly cheer whenever there is a nice performance, making chessmen try their best to show their skills. After nearly two hours, the human chess competition finishes. However, the spectators often do not want to go home, they would like the organising board to continue the game.

Strange! Looks like human chess, but the words are actually animals of the Chinese/Vietnamese zodiac! I see "rabbit", "ox", and "horse"...

There's no chess "board" for them to play on, either. Probably just a find-the-correct-order task?
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!
