Leg 11
Most of the links will be from Daum maps since Google street view in Seoul is 2009/2010.
The leg start is still a bit of a puzzle. We see them walk out of a travel agency (here--see below), but there's no matching courtyard/mural nearby.
Gangnam station/M-square
Hanyang University Olympic Gym
The cab driver wasn't exaggerating: here is the approx. location of where the guys
realized they were lost, and here is a suggested route (20 min. minimum) to Hanyang U.
Mugyewon cultural center
OGM arena (S-Plex Center)
Gavit/Some Sevit

Leg 8. Managed to match the donkey route with a couple of clues, thanks to Slowhatch finding the first cheese lady!
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Slowhatch, it's this little nook at the Hidden Charm Hotel in Ninh Binh!
Note the matching shingles, eaves, and windows.

OK, so the trip between the hotel and the travel agency was just left on the cutting-room floor. Thanks.

Legs 9 and 10. Thanks Slowhatch!

The basket task in Ninh Binh was 1.1km/0.7mi long, good thing there weren't any intersections to confuse the teams!

Leg 11. The Amazing Yellow Blue Line got lost this week and ended up 1500mi off-course in the Leizhou Peninsula in Guangdong, China.

The metro was surprisingly not the end of the world for Matt/Redmond, even though Gangnam was on the complete opposite side of town with Line 2 taking a big, circuitous loop around the city. A taxi would take 90min in light traffic and the metro would take 87min plus transfer and waiting time, meaning they would only have been around 15min behind at the most.

The Pit Stop was in the river? Couldn't really tell at night.

Sort of! It's a set of three man-made islands in the Han River.

Leg 12, my hometown! Mapped out Brooke/Scott's route, which was the most logical:
- Red line up to Chicago and across to the Water Tower (it was Season 6, Scott)
- Straight down to the Chicago River to the Wabash Ave Bridge
- Through to Millenium Park and Buckingham Fountain
Tara/Joey did it semi-efficiently in the opposite direction, except for the detour down to the Chicago Temple, which is the opposite direction from the Water Tower.
London/Logan were all over the place, starting in the middle at the bridge, then hitting the south and north ends.

Updated the main map on the front page, and here's the consolidated Google Maps placemarks for TAR 8-29!
Thanks Slowhatch for the season!

I was a little puzzled by these caps, one from the episode and the other from the insider videos; the only thing I can conclude is that the racers were told to leave their cabs at
Cermak-Chinatown station and take the red line into Monroe station.

That would explain Scott saying "We go towards Howard, which is the one we were on." at Monroe!

Will fix the map later!

Thanks Neobie! You are the best mapper I ever had.

Could you help for a favor to Google Map placemarks (to be updated) for TAR 1-29?
My posts are fine, so please be careful.
