Lots to do in Bariloche if that's where they end up.
The Walk of Nations sounds perfect for the next pitstop.
Facts about Bariloche courtesy of their tourism website...
 
Bariloche: a must, all year long.
For many, Bariloche (say Bah-ree-law-cheh) is synonymous of winter, snow and skiing. But there's more: also known as the "American Switzerland", this city and its surrounding mountains and lakes are unquestionable tourist attractions all year long. Here, we offer you a special report where we cover all the excursions plus the essential info and activities to perform at this incredibly beautiful district in northern Patagonia.

The "queen" of the Andean Lakes District is, undoubtedly, the city of San Carlos de Bariloche. Located on the South margin of Lake Nahuel Huapi, it unfolds its beauty throughout its shore, along one long coastal avenue named Exequiel Bustillo, which extends up to Hotel Llao Llao, approximately 25 km. away from downtown.

A first, mandatory excursion consists of a relaxed stroll across its streets packed with old and charming stone and wood houses where, at each corner, beautiful sights and landscapes abound.
You can begin with a visit to the Cathedral Nuestra Señora del Nahuel Huapi. The building was projected by architect Alexander Bustillo and it was never finished. Nowadays its access is used as a chapel. It has got interesting vitreaux that tie religious subjects with Patagonia. Then, after passing Puerto San Carlos you arrive at the Civic Center. This is the most representative spot in the city. With its Swiss style, arcades and horseshoe shapes facing the lake, was opened in year 1940 by National Parks. Its buildings lodge the City Council, the Tourism Secretariat, the Police, the Patagonia Museum, the Library and the Emilio Frey Venue where cultural events and art exhibitions take place.

At the Council Building there is a Clock Tower that shows, at 12 and 6 PM, a parade of symbolic figures: aborigines, priests, soldiers, and settlers. Afterwards you can walk along Mitre street, the main commercial area of Bariloche. It is very interesting to observe the style of the buildings along its first blocks, trying to maintain the "Bariloche architecture": Stone and wood, arcades, balconies and eaves all around.

When you get to Beschtedt Street, you will see long stairways to your right which you can traverse in order to visit one of the most antique buildings, the Chapel of the Immaculate which has been declared a Historic National Monument. Built in year 1905, its first placement was not here but on Moreno Street. It was moved to its current location, a true lookout point to the city, during year 1973 using rails.

It is also recommended that you visit the Walk of Nations (Paseo de las Colectividades) with its Flags Plaza which gathers all the flags of the different immigration currents that populated Bariloche.

Later, you can take Perito Moreno Street, going back to the Civic Center, where you will see the oldest houses in the city: Casa Marciani, Vivienda Speranza, Edificio Capraro, up to the Council of Nahuel Huapi National Park. Afterwards, a bit to your left on Morales Street the Club Andino Bariloche's building is located. It is a very important social and cultural place also. This walk can be finished walking along Mitre until it becomes San Martin Street in order to get to Worest Casino, featuring an imposing view to the lake.

Looking at the pit stop, it suddenly came to me that when a team arrives there, it doesn't look like a wide open space because of cameras shooting both Phil and the teams... LOL!

I thought the same thing!  And when you look at the photo of this team at the mat, if they approached Phil and the mat from head-on, it looks as if they'd have to wind their way around the benches and signs -- not as open as it seems to appear on the show when the racers come sprinting up.  And I asked myself about ALL the crew -- do all of them have to sprint alongside the racers?  Or are they off to the side, and then when a team gets to the mat, the camera and sound crew descend upon them - whoosh!  (I noticed what looks like a still photographer, too).

Also, I'm having trouble aligning the two photos. It looks like they moved the mat -- maybe to catch better sunlight as the day progressed? Check out where the benches are positioned in relation to the mat, and also the silver sign.

Phil looks like he's smiling more than frowning in the photo. Possibly just avoiding elimination? *wishful thinking...*

If we all *wishful think* hard enough, would it make it true?  ;D

I think they line up pretty good.  The bench the greeter is sitting on in the wide shot is seen behind him and Phil in the closer shot.  If you look at the wide shot, the mat shot was taken from the right side.  The mat shot was also taken with a longer lens, so this distorts the perspective some.  (wide shot, 105mm lens; mat shot 135mm lens)

PS - the shots were taken 14 minutes apart only.  Wide shot was at 3:50.  Mat shot was at 4:04.

If y'all go back to our spoiler video taken at the final 3 mat in Moscow Season 13, (the one puddin and I sold our souls for) you can see how this works. Production and the lighting guys are lying in wait. :lol:

People talk, the reporters listen  ;D

The Amazing Race leaves Chile and goes to Bariloche, Argentina
http://bit.ly/50jTdu

yes I read that the other day. But here is the thing. The newspaper/blogger isnt following them. This is CBS and TAR we are talking about. When have you know CBS or TAR to go up to a reporter and tell them "hey this is were we are going, leak it to the world." I highly doubt the reporter camped there for 12 hours till early AM to see what the racers got as a clue. So they werent "spotted" anywhere, they were assumed to go somewhere. So they could be in Tembukto for all we know.

true. I think its like an 8 hour drive from there to Mendoza, Arg. I dont know if thats to long of a drive for a leg. But if its not then they could do a switchback of the Meat eating roadblock.

With the present route map, can we speculate that the race could or would go back to Mother Africa, and possibly (again) have a "Europeless" race course, after 13 seasons?

Seems to be following Season 11's route. No Europe though would be a welcomed change.

I am going up to Whistler in a week and will ask around for any rumors of them coming there.  Filming should be around a week away if they arrive on the way home and stick to a three week race.  Is World Race Productions the name they still use on permits?

I'm jealous!
Neither Vancouver or Whistler Village publish their film permits online - but the name to look out for is World Race Productions. I've already harassed the front desk at the Blackcomb lodge.  :lol:

Happy hunting (and skiing!).
