The pic is Ron and Chris safe then dance with local.

Hold on a sec. The dancing is a Detour option or a General Task, right? Because if so, they aren't safe until they reach the mat and Phil says so.

No...they dance because they're happy :lol:
Mad_joe said they have already checked in ...Mad_joe even chated with them since thie leg is over for them.

for more details from mad_joe's weibo:

"跟虎女聊了好久,中英文都有,她和老爸的中文都超级标准的,我说一定要拿第一,她对我表示感谢,她人太nice了,我想给她帮助,不过她说自己诚实做人,不想cheat,最后她还拥抱我感谢...要哭了"

"Chatted with Chris for a long time, using both Mandarin and English. She and her dad speak Mandarin in great standard, I said 'You have to win', she thanked me after this. She is so nice, I wanna give her some help, but she denied and said she want to play a fair game, and doesn't want to cheat. At last, she gave me a hug to thank me, I'm gonna cry."

Thanks Weihen for the translations of Mad Joe's updates! I guess it wouldn't hurt if I put in my version as well:

1.45pm: God, I found Zev and Justin!
1.49pm: God! I gave them Y200.
2.00pm: I don't know if Zev and Justin are last. I asked and they denied it, but they looked sullen. Cameramen don't give up (sic). They asked me for money, and I gave them Y200. They ran off but I didn't follow. I'm now at the entrance to the Old City of Lijiang, waiting to see if there are others. P.S. They denied getting the Express Pass.
2.07pm: Indeed, there is a performance at the plaza.
2.24pm: God, I found Christina and Ron. They're safe for this leg, and they're performing a folk dance. It's not wise to get closer; the cameramen are following closely.
2.30pm: Talked a long while with Christina, both in English and Chinese. Both she and her father are pretty fluent in Chinese. I told them to go for gold, and she thanked me. I wanted to help her, but she's too honest and didn't want to "cheat". She hugged to thank me in the end, I'm going to cry...
2.59pm: Met up with Uncle Bao. He's exasperated to have not seen anybody. Haha, funny!

time he commented or the time he saw the teams?

ron and christina performing what? is it a task? how were they safe? are they enjoying? sorry, too vague?

also, are there eyewitness reports on who got eliminated in Japan?

These are the times that the updates came in. I'm not going to make any speculation, as the eyewitness himself will probably check in later to clarify things. Any eyewitness reports would be reflected in this thread, so if you don't see one here there we probably don't have any information for now.

I guess further discussion should be directed to the Discussion Thread?

Note: The dancers are a staple on Sifangjie Plaza. They might not necessarily have to do with the race.

Kynt and Vyxsin are in front of the Qingqing Jiaqi Kezhan Holiday Inn at 150 Xinyi St, just north of Sifangjie Plaza.

Amanda & Kris eliminated in Oz, Cowboys in Japan

Please review your facts before posting! Jet and Cord were seen in Kunming, with photo evidence.

Which narrows down the possibilities for Japan... :(

I don't think you understand what I meant.

From my copy of Lonely Planet:
Above the old town is a beautiful park that can be reached on the path leading past the radio mast... Here acting as sentinel of sorts for the town, the Wanggu Lou (admission Y15) was raised for tourists at a cost of over one million yuan. It's famed for a unique design using dozens of four-storey pillars - unfortunately these were culled from northern Yunnan old-growth forests. A path (with English signs) leads from Old Market Sq.

Is there anyway to ask Mad Joe to clarify what he means regarding the U-Turn?

Is he saying that K/V are running last and had to face a U Turn?

Or is he saying that they finished last, and face a Speed Bump next leg?

Or is he saying they were U-Turned, then had a 30 minute penalty?

Or is it something else completely different?

Because what was reported weihan makes no sense in the context of the current rules of TAR.

Just to elaborate, there is No twitter nor Facebook in China. It's been blocked by the government and everyone needs a proxy to log in.

Just a question, anyone check 人人网(Chinese Facebook)?
