Something else that may support India as a location. I don't know how to post vidcaps, but in one of the promo flashes, I did see see a sign that looked like a shop sign made by a 5 year old that said something like "Henna Offered Here". From what I found, it is popular in the Middle East and India.
It's from TAR11 introflash's -- it was the African leg that they skipped but we know it is recyled 100%

lol ok, I didn't even know they had planned out that leg. You learn something new everyday ;).

For those interested in information about Jaisalmer, it is in the middle of a desert about 150 miles from Jodhpur, the nearest airport. I have been throughout Rajahstan except for Jaislamer, which I missed to a travelling incident that caused me to miss the overnight train there from Agra. For those interested in those pictures of a major body of water and coastline, you won't find it anywhere near Jaisalmer. the nearest coastline to Jaisalmer is at Karachi Pakistan.

I have to say that I am sceptical of flying in and out of Jodhpur with the accompanying 150 miles each way by road or rail to/from Jaisalmer. There is a small airport in Jaisalmer, but it is not open from April to September of every year. The flights from Delhi to/from Jodhpur are surprisingly good:

July 23 DEL JDH 1310 1400 IC421 Note this requires a 45 minute connection from the flight arriving from Frankfurt. This is incredibly tight, but if it works all is well (if it doesn't teams will not arrive in Jodhpur until the morning of July 24, via Ahmedabad).

July 24 JDH DEL 1825 1720 IC472

This shows that allowing roughly 6 hours round-trip by road or rail there would be about 22 hours for tasks and a pitstop in Jaisalmer.

The Train Jodhpur to Jaisalmer and return

I went to IndianRail for info on the train schedule currently in effect and very likely to have been in effect July 23 and 24, since it is the same every day. This Delhi - Jaislamer Express leaves Jodhpur at 0620, travels 301 km by rail (188 miles or a bit more than by road) and arrives 1300. After the workers have had a proper lunch, they depart Jaisalmer at 1600 and arrive back at Jodhpur at 2200. 5 hours 40 minutes or 6 hours, but look at the timing. It just won't do and is useless for AR12.

I was running through that commercial again and found this dude!! He's NOT Morocco raghead!

The man is a member of the Sahara Desert nomads known as Tuareg.  The blue head wrapping, or tagulmust, is their distinctive mark and give them the nickname "The Blue Men".  They can be found roaming on their camels in Algeria, Libya, Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso
