The new season started today, and already, I get the impression that this should be one of the most interesting casts. The first part felt like the race of old, with no startling line task, and just drive straight to LAX. And even showing the teams in their cars, sharing how excited they were about going to their next destination, and a "race" to see which ones get on that first flight out of LA. Even the part with the teams riding the airport bus to the terminal and interacting with each other, which was something we have not seen in a very long time. Also, seeing the teams having to jog to the starting line in Griffith Park, probably will give them an idea how tough the race will really be. Very hot, with almost no shade there. And how unbelievably gorgeous is Bora Bora? Just wow! The very definition of paradise. I never thought the race would go there, only because how unbelievably expensive it is, to get there. I will write more later on.
