PREVIOUSLY ON .. THE AMAZING RACE:

Phil: Teams left Maputo for Zanzibar off the coast of Africa. At the airport, Charla/Mirna took a well calculated risk and surged ahead of everyone else. Eric/Danielle got pulled off their plane when the airline overbooked their flight. They were left behind with Teri/Ian and the Guidos. Danny/Oswald caught up with Charla/Mirna, but Charla/Mirna came in first for the second time in a row.

Sixteen hours later, the Guidos edged Teri/Ian, who were eliminated.

Six teams remain. Who will be eliminated next?


Not Eric & Danielle...... :yess:

Phil: Zanzibar's Old Fort, the sixth pitstop in a Race around the world. After falling more than 1/2 day behind, can Joe/Bill stay in the playing field?

4:20 am, Chirla/Mirna, CLUE.
Make your way to Warsaw.
Find this palace, Chopin's boyhood home, for the next Clue.
Teams are booked on a flight scheduled to arrive in the next morning 11:25 am, although they are not obligated to keep those tickets.

Danny/Oswald, 4:28 am.
After a confessional in which they eschew alliances of any kind, they agree to head to the airport with Charla/Mirna for a better flight.

Uchenna/Joyce, 7:55 am.

Dustin/Kandice, 8:00 am.
One blonde, Conf: We're gonna get to see Chopin play piano!
Other blonde: He's dead.

U/J go to South African Airways and (yes, they're right about African time) they wonder whether the agents will open the office on time.

So Uchenna gets on the phone to a travel agent.
D/K go to a travel agent.
Chrla/Mirna are already there.
The woman writes Uchenna's name in front of Dustin/Kandice.
D or K: Hang the phone up!
Uchenna: This is a competition.
Mirna: Say bye-bye!

Mirna does the negotiation for C/M and D/O.
Dustin/Kandice seem to be free agents in the same ticket office.
D/K accuse Charla of being rude.   
Uchenna and a nice looking young lady in his ticket office smile at each other.

Mirna is offered a later flight.
Mirna: Earlier.
Oswald: It's like a spy plane.
D/K: Look through Addis Ababa.
Woman: Through Addis ... CONFIRMED.

Mirna grimaces.
M: We have nothing right now?
Other Woman: Nothing.

D/K will arrive at 9:10 am.
Mirna: We're screwed, Charla.

Hours later, C/M and D/O are still negotiating fligh ttimes.

Uchenna gets a flight which goes through Frankfurt, arriving Warsaw at 9:10, same time as D/K.


Departing the pitstop. Eric/Danielle, 3:15 pm.
Danielle doesn't know where Warsaw is.
The agent offers D/O a ticket arriving in Warsaw at 5 pm. Bwah!

Uchenna/Joyce take off on the first leg of their flight, and they'll leave Africa out of Joburg.

Eric/Danielle are shocked to see Charla/Mirna still in the travel agency.
Danny: Seven long hours.
Eric/Danielle argue. Is there a travel agent closer? Maybe they'll go? Stay? Shaddap, you're stupid, no you're stupid ...

Eric/Danielle find another travel agent.
Eric: Anything earlier (than the ticket they already have)?
Man: All full.


4:00 pm, C/M and D/O leave Zanzibar, and will fly through Nairobi and Amsterdam. Eric/Danielle still pissed at each other.

Departing 7:01 pm, Joe/Bill.

Guidos are happy to see Eric/Danielle in the airport.
It's now dark.
Eric/Danielle aren't happy at all.

They leave at 7:55 pm, flying through Kilimanjaro Airport (Arusha/Moshi) and Amsterdam.

In Kilimanjaro Airport, they are delayed just enough to watch their jet close the gate. (And there's only 1, maybe 2 flights a day to Amsterdam from there ... ouch!)
Joe: You radio that plane! We have tickets!
Danielle: Are you kidding me?
Agent: Not possible.
Danielle: Why is it not possible?!?
Eric: We're gonna be stuck here for god knows how long.
Bill (or is it Joe?) runs out onto the tarmac, as if he can stop the plane.
HEEEEYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!

I just want to say that my predictions of a window of 4:3opm to 7:00am were the closest I have ever guessed and pretty close for all the racers.
Title: Re: EP 7&8 chat and update
Post by: mswood on April 01, 2007, 07:26:36 PM
Danielle: We have to get on the plane!
Bill: HEEEEEYYYYY!
Bill waves his arms to no avail. The plane leaves.
Joe: Temper.
Bill: Got it.
Eric: We could be 3 days behind the others now.
Eric conf: Us and the Guidos trying not to get eliminated.
Danielle: I feel like I'm walking into a funeral.
The two teams decide to leave for a hotel, despite the fact that the Guidos don't trust E/D not to leave them behind.
THey agree on a 4:30 wakeup call.


Frankfurt.
Uchenna/Joyce get the word - they have to go to a transfer desk of Lufthansa.
Man: I suggest you go to the gate directly.
(It's boarding!)
Uchenna to agent: Our flight leaves in 15 minutes.
Man: You cannot make it.
Joyce: Can we please get on??
U conf: We got yanked off the flight.

Morning.
E/D will fly out of Arusha to Mombasa and Frankfurt.
Guidos have the same flight.


Knights in shining armor await at the palace of Chopin's statue.

D/K first, and alone in first, arrive in Warsaw.

C/M and D/O are the second plane to arrive, apparently as D/K's taxi takes them to Chopin's ghost playing on the lawn.
CLUE: DETOUR.
Perfect angle, or perfect pitch?
Phil: Tasks related to a 19th century composer, and Marie Curie.
Perfect pitch, make your way 3/4 mile to a palace, tune one key of a keyboard perfectly, for the concert pianist to play a tune.
Perfect Angle: Pick up a mannequin at a boutique, use an x-ray machine to locate a clue inside the mannequin, which is a destination that they'll read on the x-ray machine. Has to be read at the perfect angle.

D/K will tune a piano key.
(Sounds like a clunker to me. Ouch!)

C/M's taxi driver drops them at a church instead of the palace, then takes off.
Nobody wants to give them directions.   

The piano player sounds good, now that D/K are done.
D/K, CLUE: Jan Sobieski Lazensky.
Phil: They have to figure that the clue is about this Monument.

C/M enter a building where they are given the cold shoulder.
Mirna: Do you know how to speak?
 
They go back outside.
Danny/OSwald's cab takes them past Mirna/Charla, standing with a finger in the air.
 

Oswald/Danny pick tuning a piano.

C/M try another building, and finally get directions from the concierge.

D/K, CLUE: Make your way to the next pitstop on the grounds. Last team to arrive may be eliminated.


Man: Welcome to Poland.
Phil: Dustin/Kandice, you are team #1.
Both: WHEW!
Phil: Some good news. You've won a trip for 2 to Puerto Rico.

Post by: mswood on April 01, 2007, 07:39:58 PM
11:02 am, U/J arrive in Warsaw.
Their taxi driver has no idea what they're saying.
 

Danny sits down to play Chopsticks on the piano.
Oswald conf: You were hiding one of your little talents, weren't you!

C/M arrive at the DETOUR.
Mirna: Perfect ANGEL, or Perfect Pitch.
Charla: Angle.
 

Attempting to tune the key, D/O destroy the piano string!   

U/J go into some building.
At every turn, Joyce hears pianos.
Some guy comes at them with a violin.
Their cabbie took them to the Music School!   

Charla/Mirna find the piano and try to tune the keys.
Tink, tink ... Horrid!   

U/J finally get directions from someone who speaks good English.
For some unknown reason they get back in the same cab.   

D/O and C/M are incompetent at tuning keys.
C/M's pianist quits.
Mirna: It was pretty good.
Pianist: Not good.
Mirna: We keep trying.

U/J get the DETOUR clue.
Joyce also says "Perfect ANGEL."   
They'll tune a piano.
U: We have no idea where the other teams are. We haven't seen another team for 24 hours.

Charla: Oh! They broke a string!
Oswald contemplates giving up on the pianos.
Charla contemplates the same thing.
Mirna: We've been doing it for an hour.
Danny: Ay, Dios Mio!

COMMERCIAL.

D/O decide to stay.
C/M keep trying, too.

Danny/Oswald say they're done.
Although one sound is clearly off from the other.
Finally it sounds okay to me.
Pianist plays the melody as they make arm motions behind his head.
He sees them and laughs.
 
D/O, CLUE in 2nd place.
They see the unspellable name.
Oswald: This is a CLUE?
Conf: And the pianist was nice to look at, too.

C/M give up at piano tuning, and decide to attempt the other Detour.

U/J arrive just after Charla/Mirna leave.
Joyce conf: I used to play the piano. I know where Middle C is.
(Yes and ... ??)

Charla/Mirna are frustrated, but find La Scada where their mannequins await.
They will transport it to the laboratory.
Charla: They don't have any women mannequins?
Charla and Mirna are carrying a mannequin around the streets of Warsaw, but can't get any directions.
Finally they drop it on the ground and take a seat.


Phil: Oswald/Danny, you're team #2.
Both hug.

Mirna: Does anyone speak English?
They find a woman.
It's getting dark. Shadows are long across the streets.
Parts of the mannequin fall off as they walk him toward the lab.
 
Charla: You're supposed to cover his private parts.
 

Piano tuned, Uchenna and Joyce get their CLUE.
They're still with the same cabbie.   

Charla/Mirna find scissors and all sort of stuff in the mannequin. They haven't found the right angle.


Phil: Uchenna/Joyce, you're team #3.
U: WHOA! For real?
Phil: For real.
Joyce looks shocked.

Frankfurt, E/D and Guidos arrive, still trying to get to Warsaw.


Phil: Charla/Mirna, you're team #4.
Charla: You're kidding?
Phil: I wouldn't kid with you. You're still in the Race.
Charla: Wow!

Dustin/Kandice begin the next leg.
10:54 pm. CLUE.
Travel to Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp.
Phil: Where over 1 million people were killed in genocide.
First, they have to find tickets to charter buses scheduled hours apart.


And you know for not being a TBC this was a great idea with the time spread to have these episodes on the same night.


Dustin/Kandice at about 11:00 pm find out the first bus leaves at 1:00 pm.

Finally having arrived in the right city, E/D and Guidos cabs racing through the streets of Warsaw.

Eric: We'll just have to duke it out.
Bill, to cabbie: Go! Go! GO!!

E/D and Guidos cabs stopped at the same red light!
High Drama!

Footrace to the CLUEBOX, piano still playing on the lawn.
Poor pianist!
Eric/Danielle will tune the piano.
Joe/Bill will do the Mannequin. (Uh-oh, with no one to tell them how to find the lab ...!! )

Eric: How the hell do I know which key is out of tune? They all sound bad.
Bill: Pick the hunkiest mannequin.
They ask their cabbie directions to the lab.
(Why couldn't C/M have done something like that?!)

Piano doesn't sound good. Danielle and Eric try again.
Joe/Bill start to x-ray their mannequin's "pecs."
They look at the first x-ray. Nothkng. They'll try a better ang.e
Second angle, they see the scissors.



Oswald/Danny, 1:06 am.
Oswald: This will be difficult, going to a place like this.
Danny: It'll be a very emotional day.


Eric broke a piano string!
Danielle: How'd you break a string?
Eric: Because I was tightening it?
Danielle: What do you want to do?
Eric: I dunno.
Joe/Bill "running out of options", can't find anything in their mannequin.
Eric tries again to tune a repaired key.
Bill: I don't know what it is, Joe.

E/D finish tuning.
Their player plays.
CLUE, E/D, head for the Jan whatevia statue.

Guidos get the clue out of their mannequin at long last.
THey get back in their cab.
Both teams racing in cabs trying to find the statue.

First to the CLUE, E/D.

Phil: Eric/Danielle, you're team #5.
Danielle: Thank God!
Eric: We know we can win it if we're with everyone else.
Danielle: Good to still be in it.

Guidos still looking for their clue.


Uchenna/Joyce, CLUE, 2:26 am.
Uchenna: This is very poignant.

Guidos finally get their clue.
Bill: We did our best.


Man: Welcome to Warsaw, Poland.
Phil: Joe/Bill, you're the last team to arrive. I'm pleased to tell you, however, that this is a non-elimination ...
Both kiss Phil.
They hug each other.
Phil: That's the good news. The bad news, you're marked for elimination, 30 minute penalty, yadda, yadda. You're at the back of the pack right now.
Conf: Tensions are high. Figuring out how to do this. You can't make up 10, 12, 14 hours. You can only play the hand you're dealt. In the first Amazing Race, we got far behind and never made it up.

Getting the next leg CLUE, C/M 4:50 am.


U/J find tickets in Group 1 for the Charter Bus. It leaves 1:00 pm.
C/M get Bus #2, leaving at 5:00 pm.
Mirna: That puts us tied for last place.



Boy Charla & Mirna did a very bad job on that leg nearly 3 full hours later then a team that arrived in Warsaw at the same time.

Four hour lead, U/J, D/K and D/O.


Pitstop, E/D leave 1:50 pm.
They get Charter #2.
Danielle wants a cup of coffee.
Eric: We don't have enough money.
They argue again.  
Danielle: You ignore me every single day! It's ridiculous! You're making it so unenjoyable.
Eric: Just shut up!
Danielle: Grow up.


Guidos, CLUE, 3:32 am.
It's late afternoon now, if you can believe THAT!
They don't have their bus pass yet ... and it's getting close to 5:00 pm.
They cant find the ticket dispenser.
Cop: Sorry I don't know.
As it turns out, they found it in the nick of time.
(Much ado about nothing.)

C/M and E/D join Guidos on the Charter #2.

Lots of emotional confessionals about Auchwitz tonight.

INTERSECTION.

Phil: Teams have to make decisions together until further notice.

D/O and U/J, FAST FORWARD.
(Dustin/Kandice will have to wait until another team arrives at the Intersection.)
Make your way 1/4 mile to two towers. Fireguard tower, and city hall tower. Climb to the top of both, counting steps. Correct answer for the FF Award.

INTERSECTION: You must pick one other team to partner with.
D/K we have to wait for an hour.
(An hour????)

U/J and D/O cabs arrive at the towers.
Fireguard Tower of St. Mary's Church and City Hall Tower.
The two teams celebrate abandoning D/K.
Joyce: They'll have to wait for hours. That sucks!

(But one of the two teams could cut that shit short, and leave the other team counting steps until hell freezes over!)

Old, dusty towers with rickety, old steps.
Oswald: We all had the same number for the first tower. But different numbers for the second towers.

Oswald's number is CORRECT.
FF, Danny/Oswald.
Drive yourselves to the next Pitstop.
U/J have paired with Danny/Oswald for the FF, now will proceed to the pitstop with D/O.

Still at night, C/M, E/D and Guidos make their emotional visit to Auchwitz. As with the first group, teams leave either very emotional, or very somber.

Driving, U: Can't keep my mind off the concentration camp. Still has me freaked. Hope we get it before we all destroy each other.

Dustin/Kandice still waiting at the Intersection ...   


Night fog ... four running shoulder-to-shoulder.
They jump on the map.
Woman: Welcome to Krakow, Poland.
Phil: Oswald, Danny, Uchenna, Joyce, you are team #1.
I have one prize to give away. It's up to you, who to give it to. A trip for 2 to a mountain resort in St. Lucia.

Charla/Mirna.
Dustin: You guys wanna work together? Let's go!

DETOUR. Eat it up, or roll it out.
Phil: Eat it up. Make way 1 1/2 miles to a market, use traditional methods to make a large link of kielbasa. Teams must eat 2 feet of sausage per person.
Roll it out, bakery on the border of town, roll out 20 bagels. Make way on foot with a delivery for the nearby waiter.

Guidos suggest changing Detours.
They find someone who speaks English, to take them to the sausage factory.

D/K and C/M sit down for dinner.
Mirna/Charla want to pray.
Mirna: It's so much bigger than I ever thought!
 
Dustin: Count your blessings the other teams aren't here.

Just then, E/D and Guidos enter.
Dustin/Kandice are eating a lot faster than Charla/Mirna.
Mirna: Why you eating so slow?
Charla: I dunno. Maybe something's wrong with me.
BELLLLCCCHHHH!   

The other four sit down to dinner and try to catch up like Chip did in Russia.

Guidos conf about their 30 minute penalty being a problem with Eric eating so slowly.

Bill finishes before Kandice, Mirna and Charla!   
Dustin: Get this plate out my face.
Plates being picked up now ... Dustin, Kandice ...
"Miss California" just hurled.   

Mirna's done.
Charla's still struggling.
Mirna: Put your head back, swallow it straight down.
Dustin cracks up.
Dani says she can't eat anymore.
Charla hurls into a bucket.
GROSS! Stuff hangs from her lips.   
Eric and Danielle cover their ears.   
Charla stuffs the last of the sausage.
Danielle and Charla look like they'll finish at the same time.
Eric only has one bite left.

DRAMA!   

CLUE, GUIDOS/E/D, find the Pieskowa Skawa Castle.

It's dark and rainy outside as the four teams, now separated, head for the Skala.

Mirna: Come on Charla! We dont have all night!
Charla: I'm sick. I don't want to die.   
Charla/Mirna can't make the parking brake release to start the car.
Mirna: Mister Taxi! Come! Which is the brake!?
The taxi man helps.
Dustin/Kandice will follow a cab, apparently.
Joe/Bill want to find a gas station for directions.
Mirna stops and asks for directions with a Polish accent.
Mirna: We're probably in last position, as usual.
(As usual??)
Joe/Bill's first attempt at directions, unsuccessful.
Mirna: I need a taxi please! I don't have time to play games here!

Man accepts $50 to lead them.
Mirna: God help me get out of this country.   


Guidos, now with a map and a flashlight, will take their chances without an escort.
Eric/Danielle get directions.
Mirna: Not one sign. Not one human being. It will be a miracle. I'm doing everything, Charla. Can you give me the Clue? What are you doing in the back seat? You're not looking at the map.
Charla: I'm doing nothing.
Mirna: Am I supposed to do EVERYTHING?
Charla: You're right. Do everything. Yell a little more on me.


Dustin/Kandice pay off their escort.


ROADBLOCK. WHO WANTS TO BE A KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOR?!?!?

Dustin dresses up in knight garb.
Charla/Mirna arrive in 4th.
Mirna wants Charla to do it.   
Charla: I'll have to get on the horse. How am I supposed to handle the horse? The horse could trample me. God help me.

   

Mirna: Just walk a straight line. No! Straight! If you move in circles, the horse will GO in circles!

Danielle and one of the Guidos laugh their asses off at Charla.

Mirna: Oh, no. Other teams are here. We're finished.

Charla: Why does it keep going in circles?
Mirna: Because you don't know how to lead it!


Phil: Dustin/Kandice, you are team #3.
Title: Re: EP 7&8 chat and update
Post by: mswood on April 01, 2007, 08:58:05 PM

The horse knocks Charla on her face.   
Mirna: Just stay there!
Charla: Things are hurting me. Please don't kill me, horse! Horsie! I have sausage!

   

Charla falls again.   
Mirna freaks. They try to help Charla back up.


Phil: Charla/Mirna, you're team #4.
Both: Good job.

Clanking ...

Phil: Joe/Bill, you're the 5th team to arrive. You have to wait 30 minutes before I can check you in.


Phil: Eric/Danielle, you are team #5. Joe/Bill, unfortunately the other teams have checked in. You have been eliminated from the Race.
Joe: It's been the best time we've had together.
Bill conf: We can be proud of ourselves and what we've accomplished.
Joe conf: I've had a knight in shining armor for 20 years. You're supposed to surround yourselves with love and happiness. And I think I've done that.

You can clearly see some are wearing vests and holding the Roadblock clues :grins:. Guess TPTB thought it was lame?

KEY NUMBERS BY JOE BALDASSARE ON THE EARLY SHOW

Earlier Arrival of intersected Dustin/Kandice and Mirna/Charla about 25 minutes

Time for Joe (half-Polish) to eat Kielbasa 20 minutes

Time for eveybody else on his intersected teams to eat Kielbasa 35 minutes

So, this means it took D/K and M/C 1 hour to finish

also, Joe claimed it took 8 hours on the dhow DAR to ZNZ

Kilimanjaro=Arusha airport

Here's the departure Lounge!



PEACH:
There are two airports on either side of ARUSHA. One is ARK, the small airport pictured in your post. The other is JRO, Kilimanjaro International Airport, which wasn't there when I was a travel agent (and may not have been there when you last traveled in that area) since it was built in the late 1990s. JRO is modern and beautiful from what I understand from my research.

You are absolutely right, and I'll add a photo just because...

But I was travelling on about a dollar a day so no planes for me!

But that Coke bottle cracked me up--we need one here in the Coke capital!

EPISODE 7 FLIGHT INFO

Here are my best reconstrucions of the flights that all teams took from Zanzibar to Warsaw. There was an extended 36 hour rest stop confirmed by a clock in Kilimanjaro International Airport. All flights in Africa and to Europe were on Tuesday Dec. 5 except for the one taken by E/D and J/B out of JRO. All Europe flights were on Wed. Dec. 6.

Dustin/Kandice
PW340 departed ZNZ 1230 arriving JRO 1500
ET804 departed JRO 1830 arriving ADD 2050
ET706 departed ADD 2340 arriving FRA 0515

SA189 departed DAR 1530 arriving JNB 1815
SA260 departed JNB 1910 arriving FRA 0555
LH3300 departed FRA 0740 arriving WAW 0915 (Note: they did not actually make this flight and the next flight is 2 hours later, so this is an enigma)

Charla/Mirna and Oswald/Danny

KL566 departed NBO 2025 arriving AMS 0530
LO270 departed AMS 0740 arriving WAW 0940

I have some very interesting flight information that indicts the travel agent who did the flight arrangements for Eric and Danielle out of Zanzibar. The Guidos had no choice given their "get to the airport ASAP and take anything" mode but to copy what Eric and Danielle were doing. What those teams actually did was to fly to Kilimanjaro International Airort (JRO) onTC7909 departed ZNZ 1955 arriving JRO 2045. What they were attempting to do at JRO was make a 10 minute connection to KL571 for Amsterdam. Any travel agent knows that a minimum bookable connection is much longer than 10 minutes anywhere in the world, so that was an illegal connection to start with. I am totally unsurprised that the KLM airplane captain was not interested in compromising his schedule to accomodate the 4 travellers on that basis.

The really strange thing is that KL571 was travelling first to Dar-es-Salaam before going to AMS and it was not departing for AMS until 2305. There was a Precision Air flight from ZNZ PW451 departing 2120 arriving DAR 2140 that would have been an easy and legal connection. It looks to me that the travel agent cost them big-time, as KL571 arrived AMS at 0710 and might have gotten them on the same connecting flight to WAW as C/M and O/D departing at 0740 arriving 0940.  The next later flight was KL1363 departing AMS at 0915 arriving WAW 1110, which still would have been a huge improvement over what actually happened to them.

Can you imagine the editing monkees......"hmm, let's see we can keep these 7 minutes of rowing in the dark down a 50 yard reflecting pool,... or we can put in the "Sausage Eating" & "Little Person walking around in a Knight Suit" bit......."   :funny:

Question regarding Eric & the Sausage Eating - Knowing that the Guido's couldn't leave until he & D had finished, & knowing that D sometimes gets a little flustered, does anyone else think that maybe Eric PURPOSELY ate at the EXACT pace as D. (To prevent her from feeling pressure - from Guido or anyone else).    :hyper:

 I know i would have done that with my wife (& 2 feet of sausage would merely be an appetizer for me).   :yess:

That really would have been risky on Eric's part especially not knowing what the Roadblock was or where the Pitstop was. Only one person knows the truth about the sausage and that will be a good question to ask him once the race is over.

  Not risky puddin.  Neither Eric or the Guidos could leave until D had finished HER sausage.

Only reason i brought it up was that it was inferred in videos that either:  Eric was being slow on purpose to screw over the Guidos....or Eric was a lightweight who couldn't even eat as fast as D.  (Also he is being skewered on other crap boards.)

My point was that he was being NICE to D (& smart for his team) to NOT have D munching alone on Sausage after the other 7 people had long since finished.  (He ate at the same pace as her, much like a good skier would slow down for an average skier.) 

A very good racer.....that Eric.   :knuckles:
