After Delhi we lose them, so anything goes until Moscow!

But since new countries have been  sparse so far--I REALLY hope they went somewhere new!

That's my top choice too!

(At least it will be once I learn how to spell it! :lol3:)

Yeah, thanks you two.  I am so looking forward to having to spell that out once the season starts.  :pull

But in all honesty would be a nice choice for a new location.

Normally I'd throw a few chips on the table for Bhutan: it's always been on the wish list of Phil/BVM, and DEL is one of the few gateway airports into PBH. But Druk Air, the national monopoly, was having difficulties during race time: how many airlines take out a webpage for an apology:js:  :plane:

zachattack308,
The answer is yes there could be 2 legs in India.  I rate the probability of that as low, however. There are 2 reasons, a WRP desire to feature a few new countries/cities each race and the fact that any second leg would have to leave Delhi and return there or go to a large enough airport (such as to Agra in 3 hours or to Jaipur in as little as 4 hours from Delhi by train) that teams could fly back to Delhi before proceding. In short, it probabilty did not happen although I think Kathmandu Nepal by plane is a distinct possiblity and have speculated that earlier.

Total speculation here...
What did the teams do in NZ?
Wouldn't it be great TV if they had to find Phil's house? Spend the night on his sofa?

Philiminator @ Sucks has posted this:

Quote
I was in Moscow Russia for a week from 7th of May until 14th. I was informed that a male & female with a camera-crew were nearby. Immediately knew it could be The Amazing Race. I waited around for just 5 minutes, to then witness another possible Amazing Race team, he was being followed by a camera-crew, he was in a blue shirt, looking for something in the 1 mile long hedge, he looked extremely tired and very sweaty. He left after about 5 minutes, after waiting around for 20 minutes I went back to the apartment, I later listened in on a conversation in a resteraunt, there was apparently another male looking in the same hedge, he could have been with another male. There were also rumors that there were a 4th team possibly both being female, but with no evidence I cant really say.


His pics:





And I enlarged them:





I have already asked for a bit more info... :angel:

What do y'all think? Real? or not?

Okay I deleted red haired... :lol:

Taking a closer look:

Any chance that is a cluebox?

Also odd that he's solo (Raoadblock?).  But then, why would he have on a backpack during a Roadblock?   :duno:

Don't forget to ask for camera date info.   :waves:

To Georgia Peach,
You asked where the sreet was, after hearing there was a m/f team nearby, I stayed out looking around for a bit, the place was called Tverskoy bulvar, I honestly have no idea about the hedge, the hedge seperates two roads apart that's all, the hedge was also 1 - 2 miles long. I saw them at around 4:00pm, we went to the resteraunt about 7:00pm meaning that if there was a m/m team, it would have been from 4:30 to around 6:30. I say they were the 2nd team because I was told that another team had came through, it could be that they are 3rd or 4th, but there was a team ahead and a team behind, could be two teams behind. I expect it to be a m/f because it is unlikely that two m/m teams are left in the final 3 or 4, but it could well have been m/m. In the resteraunt it was just an ordinary elderly couple who sat next to us.

 :sucks  Sounds about right, puddin.   :angel:

Tverskoy Boulevard (Russian: Тверской бульвар) is one of the main thoroughfares in central Moscow. It is a part of the Boulevard Ring and begins at the end of the Nikitsky Boulevard, at the crossing with Nikitsky Street. The boulevard ends at the Pushkin Square and Tverskaya Street, one of the busiest places in Moscow. East of Tverskaya Street becomes Strastnoy Boulevard.
