Peter and Sarah did have a map (in fact I believe several teams did).

Its funny that they kept getting directed out of town and to the same location by several different locals.
It really appeared, that if teams got lucky and found a local who knew where it was they did okay. If they didn't then no sucj luck.
And all of them tried.
Most teams have so far been fairly good about getting maps.
Again, in a situation like this were a lot of people are given the wrong directions. or you are spending far to long trying to find it.
Best bet is a local hotel. They can at least give good directions (use the internet or directory assistance). And if you have enough extra cash (not always something they do some legs are very tight money wise) is then for that hotel to get a qualified cab driver to direct you.

They also once night fell became very uncomfortable. I guess not only was it a coluture thing with having a female out and in american style clothes after dark. But they also got directed once to a area where just hours before someone was executed by decapitation. Finally AR security got them out of that area.
We rarely see footage of that (last time was season Three with Andre and Damon when locals tried to get them to give up their passports (never a good idea in a foreign country)

I loved that whole sequence, though I am quite sure it was emotionally very difficult for her.

Damn just reading some more, apparently Peter and Sarah stopped and did get directions from 3 good hotels.
So that apparently didn't help much.
We saw a Cop didn't have a clue either.
But Peter and Sarah drove 457 miles in and around Kuwait City.
They never did find it. THe Producers ahd to direct them to the location. ANd by that time of course they were obviously last, by a significant amount. They were still looking at 8 pm.

Mswood, it seems like the "camel food" challenge was a remote place, that nobody knew, while the camel race was better known. I guess, locals know better where a leisure (touristy) area is, rather than a commonplace animal food store. Maybe it explained that the cop and most of the locals didn't know the name and the location.
As far as I remember, all the people who got lost were heading to the camel food challenge. It seems like Lyn and Karlyn who went to the camel race right away, didn't get lost, but it took some time to reach the racing club.
Dustin and Kandice impressed me in finding the location of the pit stop right away =) They are obviously good at reading maps, but they are very very unlucky to find clues (or to get cabbies who get lost and drop them at the wrong place).

Is it possible that the next leg is a NEL?

I can't believe David and Mary are last AGAIN and its a NEL... I am sick of this...
