Leg 11.09 – “Diyos ko! Please give me milk!”

TARPHDM11

A brand new Leg and almost home. Teams will now fly to the historic city of Casablanca!

TARPHDM11

Teams will arrive at 8:35am on Royal Air Maroc. Once in Casablanca, teams will find the next clue at Hassan II Mosque.

TARPHDM11

That clue points teams to Rick’s Cafe, a recreation of the famous cafe from the film Casablanca.

TARPHDM11

Here, teams must recall the demonstration of how to make mint tea from last Leg. They will make a batch and then learn a ceremonial approach to formal mint tea pouring. Once they’ve properly demonstrated it to a judge, they’ll get the next clue.

TARPHDM11

Teams must head to Place Mohammed V. They will be given a note written in French and teams must figure out that the note is telling them to

“Fly to Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso!”

TARPHDM11

All teams will be on the same Royal Air Maroc flight arriving at 1:30am.

TARPHDM11

The next clue will be outside Ouagadougou Train Station. Teams will need to sleep in the station until their morning train to Boulkiemde in Bingo.

TARPHDM11

They need to keep their ears peeled for the announcement of the train stop by the conductor because they will not know otherwise.

TARPHDM11

Teams must search the area for the cluebox which will reveal the Road Bock: Who’s feeling thirsty?

TARPHDM11

For this Road Block, teams must milk enough from a camel to fill a dried gourd up to a marked line.

TARPHDM11

After the Road Block, teams must lead four camels along a marked path to a group of waiting nomads. They must then search the area for the cluebox.

That clue will be located at the village school and it will reveal the Detour: Teach It or Learn It.

TARPHDM11

In Teach It, teams must each schoolchildren who do not speak Filipino to memorize ten words in Filipino. The kids must pass a test by the teacher to get the next clue.

TARPHDM11

In Learn It, teams will learn 12 words in the More language. They must also pass a test by the teacher to get the next clue.

TARPHDM11

And that final clue of the Leg directs teams to search a marked path leading them to the Pit Stop on the outskirts of Bingo.

The first team to check-in here will win P200,000 courtesy of Shell V-Power Nitro+.

The last team to check-in here WILL be eliminated.

“Director’s” Commentary

Another two country Leg. Casablanca is another good city to host a full Leg in Morocco. But for here, it’s just a connection point to Burkina Faso. I’ve liked clues carrying over from previous Legs, so the mint tea should be good.

The French clue is just another way for teams to interact with locals.

Even more local interaction will take place in Burkina Faso. Even before my recent appreciation for TAR10, I’ve thought TAR12 is one of the best post-TARAS seasons, no question. And the two Burkina Faso Legs would be great for TARPH.

The camel milk Road Block is iconic. And the language Detour is alright after a long Leg.
