Press pictures. :P

Brenchel's Speed Bump task just nails it.

This is gonna be a very very boring leg.  :groan:

Hopefully the Plates spinning Detour is interesting.

Wow, in the first photo Luigi are showed at night (take notice of the flashlight on Margie's head), but they're then shown on a train headed to Galle AT DAYTIME! So perhaps they get bunched or something? By an HoO perhaps? :o

So Press Photo confirm:


receive a blessing from a monk at the Buddhist temple before receiving the next clue (first task (Find a "sil reddha" (probably a typo, a "silk reddha" perhaps) at Mulagandakuti Viharaya Welisara, then bring it to Gangaramaya Temple for a blessing from a monk) spoiled here by Neobie??)

Travel by train to Galle (what is in Galle? ??)

Take a tuk tuk to a marked King Coconut stand in Koggala, Sri Lanka (this will be for stilt fishing for sure)

 Speed Bump, Newlyweds Brendon (left) and Rachel (right) must screen print 15 t-shirts with the Sri Lankan flag (at same T Shirt factory??)

No flashlight. Margie's glasses.

Wonder if this yet another Detour option that BE can't do? (Stilt fishing)

How many does that make?

BE couldn't do the high wire, the rappel down the waterfall, and what else? ???

And Luke could not do the DJ task.

UGH.

According to our Fan wiki it is in Colombo, at least the one TAR Aus used.

http://www.realityfanwiki.com/index.php?title=The_Amazing_Race_Australia_1_Leg_10

Their FB page gives this address: NO.36, Pangiriwatta Road, Delkanda, Nugegoda, 10250 Nugegoda

Travel by train to Galle and make their way by tuktuk to Koggala? I checked it's just 15 minutes driving. Probably Detour Decision at that King Coconut stand..

Not so sure kiki.

I had found this when I was looking earlier:

Quote
Sri Lanka's Famous Stilt Fishermen of Koggala

Sri Lanka is unique for
its Stilt Fishermen of its west coast - fishermen who sit on small benches on
poles stuck into the water a few meters offshore and fish for small reef fish
called ‘Bollu’ and ‘Koramburuwo’

Before the tsunami of 2004, these
fishermen could be found off shore south of Galle, and most tour books and
photographers show that they are from Walligama - however, currently they can
only be seen north of Walligama along the beaches of Koggala - and the few who
still fish make more from tourists for photos than they do from fishing.


In case you want to know more, please check out the following article by
By Nizla Naizer in the Bottom Line, which is the only good writeup I have seen
at http://www.thebottomline.lk/2009/01/28/index 10.htm

http://www.samsays.com/Stilt%20Fishermen.htm
 
 
So I was thinking Koggala....  Maybe they do just take the train to Galle and go from there?

Article by Nizla Naizer is here too as that link is dead.

But much of what I read suggests this is mostly done now for tourists.

The problem is it is done along the coast, some pics are also labeled Galle.

This is a nice read about the tradition :

Can someone bring over the relevant Intro photos??

And where might that spinning task be? If they are stilt fishing vs Spinning it should be nearby, and we might find that building in Koggala...or Galle :funny:

Talking about the travel to Koggala, what teams are looking for is a stand or kiosk that sells Thambilis, the variety of coconuts that grows in Sri Lanka.
