The bridge behind R/Y looks like the Rion-Antirion bridge. The neon looks the same. Are they trying to find a different bridge?

I think they are trying to get to the Rion-Antirion bridge. They are just having a hard time finding it on foot. The last shot of Yolanda shows her walking on the bridge. The railing of the bridge matches and it does have a pedestrian walkway.

Assuming they rested in Rio, why would they be crossing the Rio-Antirio Bridge, puddin?  This would take them from the Pelopennese to the Greek mainland, but what's in Antirio?  Nafpaktos is a picturesque city, but I suppose they could make the overland trip back to Athens, past Delphi, to get on a plane to Oman.

Agreed it seems strange. Maybe they just walk halfway across the bridge to get a clue and walk back????  I checked on some flights to Muscat, Oman and nothing shows from Patras. Perhaps they have to head back to Athens? Flights from Athens are at 3:30 p.m. arriving between 11:15-11:50 p.m. on the 21st on Gulf Air. If they travel on the 20th there is also a flight on Qatar at 3:30 that arrives at 10:30p.m. Regardless, seems like an equalizer which BJ/Tyler are in desperate need of.

So how does that shot of Nafplion harbor fit in???? Maybe it is of Patras?

They probably decided to make a last minute title change. Someone said that's enough giving away the location with the title. Possible original titles for Episode 9:

"What's a Vegemite Sandwich?"
"Blimey Mate That's A Big Croc!"

I won't post Survivor spoilers here but all the same ..the finale will probably say " So and So's wins the million  !"
I'm getting the sneaking suspicion TAR9 is going to bore us with a recap ..things just aren't adding up unless theres a super uber leg in Australia .

TEAMS FACE A DIFFICULT DETOUR IN OMAN, WHICH REQUIRES THE RACERS TO GET UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL WITH SEVERAL ORNERY CAMELS, ON "THE AMAZING RACE 9," WEDNESDAY, APRIL 19, 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT

"Here Comes The Bedouin" -- Teams face a difficult Detour in Oman, which requires the racers to get up close and personal with several ornery camels in order to receive their next clue, on THE AMAZING RACE 9, Wednesday, April 19 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Right out of the Pit Stop, one Team erupts into a war of words and insults. Then, Teams encounter a true roadblock on the Race when they come across a flooded road allowing them a chance for a unique interaction with a kind local who comes to their rescue. Meanwhile, a lonely duo entertains themselves by invoking the ghosts of previously eliminated teams, doing hilarious impersonations of each to help pass the time.

NEXT TIME ON .. THE AMAZING RACE:
Ray: Let's find the f--ing bridge.
Yo: Ray, stop cussing at me!

maybe they went to the wrong bridge so about half way, Yolanda turns back because she doesn't see any clue box. ???

If they walk completely across the bridge, then what? Bus back to Athens? And here they have nice "commercial consideration" supplied KIA SUV's parked back at the Fort.

I was thinking the flooded road clue might be in Greece but after reading this it could very well be Oman too .

We had some problems guessing what the "Stop If Water Is At Red" signs meant. At first we thought it might be to remind drivers to watch the temperature of their engine cooling water in the hot climate of the Arabian peninsula. Then we become aware that the associated sign with waves crossing an arrow (water crossing a road ?) did not fit our hypothesis very well. Days later we asked our 4WD-driver Ya'qoub and he explained that this sign is followed by poles at the roadside which are painted white close to the ground followed by red higher up. If rainwater floods the road, it is only safe to drive as long as the white color is still visible, which means water is shallow enough to allow a normal car to pass. The power of the rain water should not be underestimated. We could see an impressive demonstration on a photo of a flooded wadi taken by a local photographer in Nizwa. The "Stop If Water Is At Red" sign is very frequent on overland roads in the Sultanate - we passed one of the signs every few kilometres.

Look I see a camel toe! :lol3:  :lol3: :lol3: :lol3:

I would not have associated a flooded road with Oman either, I mean it's the desert. But Vegas is the same way -- when it rains they get flash flooding. Maybe there are some statistics on when and where it flooded in Oman last November.

Now who would Yield the Hippies  :lol: ?

Desert Safari:
The immense desert lanscapes of Oman are welcoming the tourists and locals alike to explore. From the dunes of Sharqiyah (Wahiba) Sands in A'Sharqiya Region to the Omani section of the masive plains of Al-Rub'a Al-Khali (Empty Quarter) in Dhofar; by 4WD or on camels; the choice is yours.

Camel Safari is a new service in Oman. Safaris go Bedouin style, riding and living in the desert properly with your guides and camels as one.

A Bedouin searching for fresh grazing for his camel is an increasingly rare sight in desert areas where four-wheel-drive vehicles are now each family’s main transport. ( image below)
