....about Tony and Stephanie's exit interview.. sort if reminds me of Michelle's from Survivor, the current season, when asked who she was rooting for she said Paloma and that was the nail in Paloma's coffin, she was eliminated after Michelle (and Gillian).

So whats my point of finding the Hotel?  :lol: I don't remember but I agree with Chateau this could be El Monticulo, this is what Sarah and Terence wear leaving Fortaleza, so is this day 1 or 2 in La Paz?
You would think El Monticulo photos would be a dime a dozen but I haven't had much luck finding that view :knuckles:





This looks like the view from Monticulo in La Paz

Any chance the start mat was moved to Beira Mar? That's where you spotted Texas, and that's where the Gran Marquise is.

Monticulo is an apartment area (residential area).



The building behind Sarah is a skyscraper (commercial area).

edit:

Simcity, anyone?  :jam:

Sarah's shoulder has a shadow. But I don't know how to find the time.  :duno:
If the time is between 6:44AM-9AM, then it's near the El Prado boulevard?  :duno:

banzai, our La Paz source also said this:

Quote
From our apartment, we also noticed a lot of commotions and big tv lighting in the parc of the Monticulo, near Plaza Espana.


So we have been thinking this may sound like Pitstop activity...

Totally awesome hotel find Puddin!   :jam:

I knew the teams had to go do something in Fortaleza prior to seeking flights.

We've got a ton of time to burn to make things fit.  And that burns it good.

TAR 12 episodes.
1: elimination
2: elimination
3: elimination
4: u-turn -> elimination
5: FF -> elimination
6: elimination
7: FF -> NEL
8: Speed Bump -> u-turn -> elimination
9: NEL
10: Speed Bump -> elimination
11: finale

It's early to see a u-turn in this season but it's OK.



And long time no see a U-turn sign.  :tup:

Moved the start mat or task  :duno:? It really would be a shame to leave Fortaleza without seeing some of the sights we have searched for months. 


So see banzai, there are high rise condos nearby and the vegetation matches pretty good, the photo is from the bloggers apartment, the ones that saw the bikes and U-Turn ..





These are Chateau's original posts:

This shot was taken here.

The 16 story building is located opposite (for a 16 story building it's opposite)

El Monticulo aka Subida Monticulo  and inside is this Neptuno en el Monticulo

Left to right in banzai's pic I think it is:

Brooke, Bill, Toni, KellyStarr, Aja, and Terence I think, which suggests they may be the NON Roadblockers.

We see so far Ken, Mark, Dallas, Dan, and Marisa doing the Roadblock.  A female in yellow that I am not totally sure about? Is that Kelly or Christy? ???



The video clearly shows Marisa doing the wrestling --but why 2 in a row?? :duno:



For this wrestling Roadblock, does anyone think that the arrangement of teams in the chairs is related to the order of their teammates wrestling?

I see how teams would sign up for the wrestling order (take numbers, sign list, etc.), but will teams be allowed to leave wrestling once their turn is over or must they watch the other teams wrestle and then leave in some pre-determined method?

Well, Chateau that depends on when teams reached the pitstop in Fortaleza and how long the pitstop is. Teams landed in Fortaleza around 0945 April 25 and might have taken most of daylight hours to do their tasks. I don't know when they finished, but 4pm plus or minus is probably a reasonable guess. With a 12 hour pitstop, that would release them around 4am on April 26. The best set of flights to LaPaz is JJ3325 FOR GRU 0730 1130, combined with 5L301 GRU LPB 1600 2115. That gives teams maybe 210 minutes after pitstop release to be departing on JJ3325 and they need to get to the Fortaleza airport, go through security and to buy tickets. That doesn't sound like a lot of time to burn to me.

It's not leaving Fort, the locations aren't far from each other; it's just that Chateau thinks there might be a route info stop near the beach, and I'm thinking the Crianca area gets a little skanky in the middle of the night.

It could be that if the roadblocker "wins" then the team can leave and if they lose the team would have to get to the back of the line (like the ice bar task in TAR 6)

I wonder if Ken/Tina , Kelly/Christy, Andrew/Dan are ahead at this point?
Isn't there a hot of Tina with Bill and Brooke ... so that must mean they aren't at the RB yet? so maybe Dan/Andrew and Kelly/Christy are out in front.

that's good, gator27, because the odds are in favor of that being the process used to determine when teams get released from the cholitas.
