Jeremy leaved in Africa for a spell, what African language does he speak some of.  Because in Oman a 2cd language is an African Language (that I have no idea how to spell).  Stars with Swa....

Swahili?

Come on now, all you guys, lets hear it for the AARP GENERATION!!!

Just goes to show that age and brains always wins out over youth and brawn!

Being able to read a map and follow directions certainly helps.

We were right for once, a NEL saved The Hippies.

Tell me about it. I could only find a few pictures, and that's after I knew the name from reading the thread. The photo of Hawiyah is from a German model sailplane club page (source). Only after running some of the German through Google did I learn that the photo was taken (1200 meters high) from a camera inside the model plane; kinda neat.

And here is a close up of the clue telling teams to drive to Sur.  It says they must get there by way of Qurayyat.  Also note the warning about a 120 km/h speed limit.

So they had to take the coast road (mostly unpaved)...very interesting. Any bets on whether the geezer guide (first ford) was there by design?

Yes, he was a character!

Here is a "yield card" once alluded to by the Bowling Moms.  At first I thought BJ&T have it here because they had to hand over all their stuff to Phil.  But then I remembered that the Bowling Moms got mugged too.  An they said that they lost their yield card by misplacing it and so they were never able to yield anybody for the rest of the race.

My new take on this shot is that  BJ&T got it out to hand it over but were told they could keep it.  From the looks of it I think it is an envelope with their picture inside.  That is the picture that a team posts on the yield board when they do the deed.

I thought the moms did give it to the show becuase you need to hand in all the clues after the leg and they thought that included the yield item, and then they never got it back.  If not them it was one of the teams in AR6, and the moms never got mugged they only lost money.

And finally we see who the good teams truly are.  Had EJ not had their lame advantage they prolly wouldnt be in the race.  And drove me crazy how there was bunching for BJT but none for DD, DL, or RY[until Greece], good thing they still came in last.

Yes, that's it Never.  I forgot that they lost it just by handing it over by mistake.

I hope BJ & T got to keep their yield powers.

So I guess the 7-11 reference during the phone interview was about the shuwa (recipe here).

Anyone else notice that in the intro to EP8, Phil never mentioned that the teams went out of their way for a short sojurn to Rome to plug The Da Vinci Code?  They just flew directly from Sicily to Athens! Probably because this week one of the sponsors was RV with Robin Williams from a different studio!

11m viewers in US watch ‘race’ filmed in Oman
 

By A Staff Reporter

MUSCAT — An estimated 11 million viewers in the United States, last Wednesday, watched the prize-winning ‘reality’ television show, The Amazing Race, as competing pairs raced their way through the Sultanate of Oman.

The episode was filmed last November in various locations in Oman over the course of nearly two days, showcasing Oman’s natural beauty and culture for a large international audience.

Always on the hunt for exciting new locations, the decision to bring the popular television spectacle to Oman was spurred by an initiative taken by the former US ambassador Richard L Baltimore III in January 2005.

According to a statement released here, the Omani Centre for Investment Promotion and Export Development (Ociped) facilitated the production company’s every need during the planning and actual filming of the programme.

Which is the reason the ambassador, The Honorable Richard L. Baltimore III, was given a special credit line of thanks in the closing titles.

Three of the four people (don't know about the local) can be seen wearing watches, but I can't read the time.
On a different subject, Chateau attached a photo of FrankenBarry's boarding pass, but he left out the important part: a slightly more wide-angle lens and I could have gotten some free plane rides!  ;D

Better late than never (sometimes). I wondered back on page 2 what festival might be in town because of all the street decorations. It turns out the racers missed National Day by only a day or two. (picture here)
