I'm doubting if the riverside shots of Ray/Yolanda are from Mutrah. From Google's pictures, it seems that there's a short seawall all around the harbour, with benches etched into it. The bench designs and colours don't match either. I still see the fort in the background, though, so... I don't know. :(





The camel harbour, however, does look like Muscat.



The camel caravan in the desert shot was used in the TAR7 'Change Your Mind' commercial, so it's not from the upcoming episode.

Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Meanwhile, a lonely duo entertains themselves by invoking the ghosts of previously eliminated teams, doing hilarious impersonations of each to help pass the time.

This happened when the Weavers were Yielded TAR8 , just saying .

Is this a hint that The Hippies are YIELDED?


That's what it sounds like.  And here I was thinking that MoJo had finally claimed the FF, but now it seems as if they're not doing so well.  Of course, that's not to say that there can't be a Yield and a FF on the same leg, especially since it's likel non-elimination and both the Yield and FF are likely to be on a leg where no one's Philiminated.  I wonder if there's a long period where everyone's bunched up on a train or something and this is when they all do their impressions of the eliminated teams.  Anyway, really, this sounds like BJ/Tyler and a Yield.  Eric/Jeremy prob did it because they can no longer get back at Lake/Michelle for the Dani's sake and to stay ahead of the competition.
Every reality star is someone's favorite

Winning isn't everything, but it isn't considered nothing either. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a tribal council, a pit-stop, a boardroom, dimming of the lights, and so on

 :tup: Thanks Banzai for the videos. Given enough time, we should be able to locate the R/Y boat landing (it doesn't look like a beach to me). And Monica's "the worst thing I've ever done" sounds like it was copied from Catania.

Given the preview says "transporting a camel" and the truck is shown backing-up, implying the camel is being loaded, I assume Mo is actually riding in the back of the same pickup truck along with the camel.

 :jumpy: Nice match Boingo. I found some benches which look similar to the background benches in the cap. Sur is a center for boat-building, so maybe a task there involves dhows. There's a coastal road to Sur as this funny sign suggests, but the racers might make better time by using the inland road and then cutting back east.

Roadblock
Phil: BJ Suffers in the grueling sun at the Roadblock
tvguide: The teams travel to Oman and endure the desert's piercing heat while digging for a clue.

There's one location that we get to in the middle east where the teams are immersed in a daily
task that a lot of people have to go through. It's great to see teams
used to going down to the 7-11 living life in a completely different
way and certainly a way that people overseas have to cope with every
day.

'Amazing Race' scrambles across Utah tonight
Article Last Updated: 11/22/2005

"There will be some prominent landmarks featured," promised the typically secretive Keoghan by cell phone from the set of the show's ninth season, now shooting "somewhere near the Middle East."

We might get a cap with the main intro next week. Personally, I'm hoping for a little frankincense and myrrh action from the race because they'll be in that part of the world. My few searches for Omani daily traditions has turned up only one time-waster: they spend a lot of time making and drinking their coffee. http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=7174.195

While looking through Sur pictures, I came across pictures of wedding dancers and musicians. It turns out the sticks in the picture are camel canes (here and here).
Also, I was wrong about the driving. This site states the coastal road Muscat>Sur is actually quicker, but that the inland road crosses many wadis (chance for flooding).

Maybe it's another Herculean task.  :lol:
I'm thinking maybe the old guy (sitting in a boat? standing on the shoreline?) is Sur as well, but I haven't found any matching markers; I see things that look like bridge supports, but no bridge.
