yeah thats right Slowhatch  :tup:

Sorry to say I have lost interest in the Mole, I think its the cast I don't like..I dunno? Its just not interesting to me. Anyway all I know is Clay & Craig should be safe until EP6 per bungee photos above with perhaps Alex going out next (EP5).

While looking through Uspallata restaurants, I stumbled across this photo (source story and backstory) which explains the photo from Shanslam's album: it's a Gaucho Gil shrine. The exact location is unknown, just somewhere in Uspallata valley.

I'm reasonably sure that the bungy for the next ep is at Cacheuta (photo here, city page here), which is backtracking an hour or so from Mendoza.

If you can spare some time  :spy:, I'm stuck on Ciao Cuoco, where the final meal took place last week


and the building seen in the opening titles

The "spaghetteria" I'm assuming is somewhere in Mendoza; the intro building is somewhere in South America, maybe?
 Thanks for re-posting the castle and balloon video; I'd forgotten all about them. Are they from a previous season?

with all the Italian references in the show so far, it seems too co-incidental that the Ciao Cuoco is also in Italian. Yeah i know, it's a spaghetteria so that lends itself to being italian cuisine, and if there weren't other Italian references, i would think nothing of it.

still coming up empty on its exact location though.

gonna work on that building in the opening sequence for a bit.

..it could just be the Italian Argentina connection?
It is estimated that more than 20 million Argentines have at least one Italian forefather.

Maybe 2 parts of the same restaurant Slowhatch, the later one being fine dining.

So you're thinking Ciao and the breakfast nook and the confessionals are all part of the same place? Possibly. If they reuse the place (they reused Pueblo del Rio, so there's a good chance), we might get a better bead on it.

I remember the Casa Rosada!  In the musical and film Evita, Eva Peron did two cool scenes from the balcony of that place!  And isn't the La Recoleta cemetery where Eva is buried?  There was a challenge in The Amazing Race 5 where the teams had to go to that cemetery.

I think Ciao Cuoco was probably just used for imagery. They don't show them walking in for one. Look at the interior too compared to the exterior. Night and day. The decor really throws me. It looks more like a hotel with the seating area and sofas, etc. and what appears to be a grassy lawn outside the window. Ciao Cuoco appears to be smack in the middle of other buildings. And lastly, why is Mark using chopsticks in an Italian restaurant?! Is that Sushi he's eating?? What's up with that?  :duno:
