Episode 1603' -- The teams of the CBS series "The Amazing Race16" perform Detour B in which they carry a wooden horse through a PoloTraining Field and hit a ball inside the goal in order to receive theirnext clue.
The Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (Iglesia del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús) is the most striking feature of Puerto Varas. It was built between 1915 & 1918, built entirely of oak and was modelled on the Marienkirche in the Black Forest. This Catholic Church is still in use, so please check at the front entrance to see if it is open. Directions: Located on María Brunn, on top of a hill. Visible from the whole town.
All the time I was looking for jockey silks I should have been looking for polo uniforms. (notice how they "shopped" the mallet out of his hand )
On February 20, 1901, together with Ethel "Etta" Place, Longabaugh's female companion, they departed to Buenos Aires, Argentina, aboard the British steamer Herminius, Parker posing as James Ryan, Place's fictional brother. There he settled with Longabaugh and Place in a four-room log cabin on a 15,000-acre (61 km²) ranch that they purchased on the east bank of the Rio Blanco near Cholila, Chubut province in west-central Argentina, near the Andes.On February 14, 1905, two English-speaking bandits, who may have been Parker and Longabaugh, held up the Banco de Tarapacá y Argentino in Río Gallegos, 700 miles (1,130 km) south of Cholila, near the Strait of Magellan. Escaping with a sum that would be worth at least US $100,000 today, the pair vanished north across the bleak Patagonian steppes.On May 1, the trio sold the Cholila ranch because the law was beginning to catch up with them. The Pinkerton Agency had known their location for some time, but the rainy season had prevented their assigned agent, Frank Dimaio, from traveling there and making an arrest. Governor Julio Lezana had then issued an arrest warrant, but before it could be executed Sheriff Edward Humphreys, a Welsh Argentine who was friendly with Parker and enamored of Etta Place, tipped them off.The trio fled north to San Carlos de Bariloche where they embarked on the steamer Condor across Nahuel Huapi Lake and into Chile. However by the end of that year they were again back in Argentina; on December 19, Parker, Longabaugh, Place and an unknown male took part in the robbery of the Banco de la Nacion in Villa Mercedes, 400 miles (650 km) west of Buenos Aires, taking 12,000 pesos. Pursued by armed lawmen, they crossed the Pampas and the Andes and again reached the safety of Chile.
found both bridges approx. 16 km outside San Carlos de Bariloche
if I don't make it back
We are currently performing site maintenance. Be cool - we'll be back 100% in a bit.
I have to say CBS is doing a really good job with the content/editing of the promos leading up to the premiere this time around.And it didn't hurt that over 100 million viewers saw some of them on Sunday.
