I hear a team is eliminated in this episode.
When all is said and done, there is nothing more to say.

Playing with dolls means that the teams must search through a slew of MATRYOSHKA DOLLS, you know the ones that come apart and apart and apart until you reach the smallest one. 

The pit stop must be at St. Basil's Cathedral since we see a team opening a clew envelope and counting money which means this is the start of the second day after the pit stop, so this also means that this team is still in the race and is heading to where - Rome?

Other places that the teams may have to find are the Tsar's Bell the  Largest Bell in the world which broke when first rung and a 11 ton piece fell off; one of the largest cannons ever made the Tsar's Cannon and other places in the Kremlin and Red Square.

And if the teams thought the traffic was bad in Sao Paulo just wait until the reach Moscow where the drivers are probably the most undisciplined in the world - a red light just means to look to see if anyone is coming and if they are speed up!

Travelling on the Moscow Subway will probably be included.  And wait until the teams try to find their way around with everything written in the Cyrillic Alphabet and just about unpronounceable.  Fun times ahead!!

I have some more pix and I'll send to Puddin' and hopefully she can add them here.

I could not help but notice that these two shots are from the exact same spot:

Strange that we are receiving all kinds of hints way in advance of the eps.  And this is the first time I can recall that proof positive of a teams position is shown in advance.  If Eric and Jeremy are counting out money in front of St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow it means that they survive Ep2 in Brazil and Ep3 in Moscow and are now on the beginning of leg4 to where?  Rome?

Also if the teams are going from Brazil directly to Moscow they have a long journey ahead of them.  There are no direct flights from Sao Paulo to Moscow; teams will have to make conncections in places such as Miami, New York, Washington, Frankfurt or Paris.  Even if they go through RIo they will have to change airlines and planes in one of the other cities.  All told they may be spending up to 36 hours or more in travel time.

I was thinking the same thing cinni ..two meaning's to the title

 :waves: @cinni

:waves: @puddin!

just tangenting a bit...

but i do think that it's a double meaning and that both those teams survive until at least this episode. i can't see the sisters lasting much longer with their ineptitude. (ok, wishful thinking.) could be the swam song for eric/jeremy or the girls even?

I think there is an elimination round. Maybe Ray and Yolanda or Lisa and Joni will be eliminated.

Im actually feeling a non elimination, i would rather the NE's get done VERY EARLY, after having i think more than a month last seasons without a elimination

There's a suspension bridge in the background, so it wasn't hard to find the swimming pool (kmz attached). I just don't know what it is yet...maybe an Olympic venue.

Teams Must Find a Clue in Nesting Dolls on the next Episode of The Amazing Race  3/8/06

FRUSTRATION MOUNTS WHEN TEAMS HAVE DIFFICULTY SEARCHING FOR A CLUE BURIED INSIDE THOUSANDS OF RUSSIAN NESTING DOLLS, ON "THE AMAZING RACE 9," TUESDAY, MARCH 14, 10:00-11:00 PM ET/PT

"I Am In Russia Playing With The Dolls" -- Frustration mounts when teams have difficulty searching for a clue buried inside thousands of Russian nesting dolls, on THE AMAZING RACE 9, Tuesday, March 14 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

            Teams take an exhilarating ride across a 300-foot zip line in Brazil in order to receive their next clue instructing them to fly to Moscow, Russia.  While on the zip line, one racer's nerves get the best of her.   A deep water phobia paralyzes another racer who is afraid of drowning during a challenge and, encouraged by the other teams, another racer jumps off a high dive despite their inability to
swim.
