鸡婆八卦的臭三八,少来惹事凡我!我后来没有去追那个电视剧的下落!去你妈的,我没那么无聊。这种事还是留给你们这些闲着没事做的烂哈巴狗去苦苦嗅出吧。哈哈,败类!

I'll continue to keep half an eye on the poster, but no need to translate this one, guys. Don't think this is going to be worth our while.

She is so rude( :duno:   OK...back to live sighting...

I found a blog post that may or may not refer to TAR's visit to Taiwan. It looks like they google translated the original Chinese and posted the English that came out. It doesn't make sense but it specifically mentions TAR and some locations that possibly could have been used. However, it's also got references to marriage and "daughter seek Diamond" that make no sense to me. Maybe it will make sense to some of our Chinese fluent members. I tried to find a Chinese version on that page and couldn't find one.

They were filming the amazing race on my flight from Kenya to Amsterdam.

This is one of the best flights for getting from Africa to Europe and something I was expecting them to use.

The odd thing is that it looks like he tweeted that at about 23.00-0.00 Amsterdam time.  :duno:

Don't think we can assume that flight...remember they have to get from Malawi to NBO first. Let's take this to spec now please?

Everyone please keep up the good work on following FB, Tweets, blogs, photo sites! ALL eyes are impt right now!

If our calculations are right, and a leg was run 7/3 to 7/4, it is very possible that we only have 2 legs remaining before the finale!!!!

So sightings are more impt than ever!

Hi guys, I found a tumblr post with a possible sighting..

Quote
It was a great journey and a great experience. Now, back to ordinary life and tumblr musings… sigh.
Amazing race contestants were on the flight though (that show is still on? ikr!).

Read the other blog posts, it seems like the poster was on a flight from Africa to Milan. I have no idea how to contact the poster; could someone with a tumblr follow up on this or something?  :duno:

Good work! That's a very interesting find! I've tried to find that tumblr post but can't do it. Can you tell when the flight was and where in Africa it departed from? It sounds like a likely destination or transit point to other parts of Europe.

I can't help you with tumblr. I just signed up to see what I could figure out, but I can't make much sense out of it except that it really wants me to create my own blog.  :groan:

Milan ties in well with the other Teams connecting through AMS.  Those teams probably landed at 5:40 am on July 3rd.

After that they would continue on KLM KL 1619 taking off at 7:55 am and landing at Milan LIN at 9:40 am.   :tup:

It could be in Europe if I could watch it closely there's a black iron fences behind the shadow and the road is not a cement pavement.  And there are few European cities that have pigeons flocking around the city parks like Venice, London, Paris, etc... :duno:

But at the time the shot was taken it was after sunset in Europe.

Remember it is summer time in the Northern Hemisphere and the further north you are the longer the daylight...  example..Amsterdam sunset was at 10:04 PM  today, July 5...  Iceland.. 11:51PM.... don't discount long shadows...  short hours of darkness in the summertime...

Trust me!  It was dark in any part of Europe that matters when that shot was taken.  Sure the sun was visible above the arctic circle but really, do you think he's tweeting and taking pictures up there?

The shot was 2 hours old at 6:11 pm Pacific time. 
That was 1:11 am in Amsterdam, Solar altitude was -14.47 degrees.
That was 12:11 am in London, Solar altitude was -14.76 degrees. 
That was 1:11 am in Oslo, Solar altitude was -7.27 degrees. 
That was 2:11 am in St. Petersburg, Solar altitude was -6.16 degrees.
That was 11:11 pm in Reykjavik, Solar altitude was 1.27 degrees (too low to make the shadows as seen in the shot).

Just take a look at the Earth shadow curve and you can see where it was dark.

So sorry.. Did not mean to cause such a stir. I could not tell what time the picture was actually taken. I was “only” saying that unless one has traveled in those more northern areas in the summer..one may not be aware how late the sun stays up!... so just a simple comment not to discount those elements….not necessarily for that particular photo, but any photo where those things may make a difference..that’s all folks!   now back to tracking...
