Episode Summary

The six remaining teams depart the Pit Stop at the Peter and Paul Fortress in St. Petersburg, Russia and fly to Muscat, Oman. Their first stop leads to a truly engaging wait to climb Burj Al Mubkaharah. The Roadblock at Jabel Shams forces racers to rappel 500' and search hundreds of Arabian lamps for the few with Aladdin's ring. Atop a stack of collosal books in Nizwa awaits a Detour choice between pumping from the "Water Table" and making a delivery or purchasing ingredients and cooking a traditional soup to place on a bridal party's "Wedding Table". A final Route Marker task to deliver frankincense to Ali Baba in Muttrah Souq provides the clue to the Pit Stop at Al Alam Palace.moreless
