Welcome, vitoroseriestv! I have no trouble understanding your English.

I'm glad to see that we have people that are native speakers of Spanish and Portuguese and that have knowledge of the area looking at these tweets and giving their opinions. I was concerned that one of them might be true and I was too quick to dismiss them. I'm glad to hear that you mostly agree with my thoughts.

I have no doubt that the guy that accused me of stalking is fake since I've only sent one tweet since the race started (and another responding to the stalking accusation). The only way he could know I was following tweets about The Amazing Race was if he was lurking here. I've only heard the stalking accusation against this board in a couple of places. I have my suspicions about where the person making the accusations came from but I have no proof, so I'll just keep my ideas about this to myself.

First, sorry about my english, this is one of the motives that I'm not participative here  :'(

but I've been reading this forum has some years and never was able to help with nothing, but this time I think I am

I'm from brazil and can say that all these portuguese tweets (except the space one, that is the channel wich broadcasts the latin version here) are not written correctly! Looks like someone wrote the phrases on an automatic translate software and tried put it in portuguese

like I'm trying to do to write this message (I can easily understand, but hardly can speak or write in english)

About the spanish tweet saying about Fox do Iguaçu, it's possible because that is a city close about the border (Argentina and Paraguay), but I personally don't believe in it

Hoping this can help you guys

Now that i start thinking,makes sense...the guy only have 6 tweets,and tweet in very BAD portuguese really.But why this guy would do that?

That's what gets my suspicions going. Why would someone who has never used Twitter before see the Amazing Race in his city and think that he has to get a Twitter account to tell the world about it? It's possible, but it seems unlikely.

As for why they do it, it's been happening for a few seasons now. There are a few people out there that would like to see us get fooled and be wrong about where the race is going. I don't understand the satisfaction they get out of doing that, but it has been happening, so they must have their reasons. I suppose it's possible that the TAR producers would like to throw us off track, but I think they would do a better job than what we've been seeing the last day or two. I'm fairly certain they would use proper Spanish or Portuguese rather than depending on bad computer language translations.

Total SPECULATION, but I would love to see a TAR/TARLA crossover.  (Or really TAR with any of the international versions.)

There are plenty of people on the web that don't like RFF and/or TAR spoiling. Then there is the whole theory about CBS plants...

It's not so much RFF in general or the fact that RFF spoils... Lots of people come here to get spoiled, me included.  But some people had been spoiled to being spoiler stealers, LOL, meaning, they would come here to get super spoilers and then take the spoilers back to their own forums and post them as their own.  Lately, the super spoilers are not being posted here like they use to be and it has some people in an uproar.  Personally, it makes me mad that those people spoiled it for the rest of us who come here to be spoiled.  I am not super internet savvy or I would try to help find this information too!  B:)

I don't know if the information on Foz do Iguacu is really true, but if it is that is spectacular. This was visited in AR2 but I would love to see it again. It beats Victoria Falls as the most exciting waterfalls in the world.

It's possible the ones that don't have gotten the site from elsewhere ... Meaning it was "taken" from here, posted somewhere else than a forum takes it from that other place and has no idea it came from RFF.

But yes, it is annoying when people don't receive the credit they're due!

Punta Del Este is in Southeastern Uruguay on the Atlantic coast.

I know that several following this consider the above to be a hoax. There are Buguebus ferries from Buenos Aire (all but one of which stops in Colonia on the way to Montevideo) on this schedule:

BUENOS AIRES
12:30 / 30 NOV 11
Pto de Dna NORTE    COLONIA
13:30 / 30 NOV 11    MONTEVIDEO
16:45 / 30 NOV 11

BUENOS AIRES
18:30 / 30 NOV 11
Pto de Dna NORTE    COLONIA
19:30 / 30 NOV 11    MONTEVIDEO
22:45 / 30 NOV 11

BUENOS AIRES
23:59 / 30 NOV 11
Pto de Dna NORTE    COLONIA
03:59 / 01 DIC 11    MONTEVIDEO
07:14 / 01 DIC 11

From Montevideo it is a 75 mile bus ride to Punta del Este and there are nonstop flights from Buenos Aires to Punta del Este as follows:

7:35 am   →   9:25 am   AEP-PDP   -   -   -   -   T   F   -   pluna 204
8:30 am   →   10:20 am   AEP-PDP   -   M   -   -   -   -   -   pluna 202
10:20 am   →   12:10 pm   AEP-PDP   S   M   -   -   T   F   S   pluna 208
10:30 am   →   12:20 pm   AEP-PDP   -   -   -   -   T   F   -   pluna 206
12:30 pm   →   2:20 pm   AEP-PDP   S   M   -   -   -   F   S   pluna 108
2:05 pm   →   3:55 pm   AEP-PDP   S   M   T   W   T   F   S   pluna 118
7:15 pm   →   9:05 pm   AEP-PDP   S   M   -   -   T   F   -   pluna 262
7:45 pm   →   9:35 pm   AEP-PDP   S   M   -   W   T   F   S   pluna 130
10:20 pm   →   12:10 am   AEP-PDP   S   -   -   -   T   -   -   pluna 276
10:40 pm   →   12:30 am   AEP-PDP   -   -   -   -   T   -   -   pluna 272

I don't know about you, but I would love to see "The Hand" again (reference AR5, episode 1) and I think a revisit to that meat shop from which Charla ended up carrying a 55 pound hunk would make a fabulous throwback.

This does not minimize the value of AR20 going to revisit Iguacu Falls, which is another alternative reachable from Buenos Aires.

I want to have my cake and eat it too. I was surprised to find that there is a daily bus from Iguacu Falls to Montevideo.

Not many spoilers so far this season. Does anyone think they could already be on their second continent? That is what I think.

Too bad I was in Panama when it started.   :groan:

The Saturday, 7:30 pm indicators would have given sufficient time to run down to LAX and get shots before they took off from Gate 42B.

Oh well, I hope what I found in Panama about TAR19 helps to counter the lost opportunity.

This person has a longer history on twitter, so it passes the initial test.

Amazing Race is in Salta!! So cool!
7 minutes ago

Salta is in Northern Argentina in the foothills of the Andes and is Argentina's 8th largest city with about 475,000 people. This one intrigues me. According to her blog, Kristen is on a two month trip (so far) across South America.

Looks solid to me  :tup:

Cool town too!  This speaks well for EVE as the first destination airport.
Almost one week after the race started? I kind of find it hard to believe.

It started 4 days ago... And normally they're doing three or four legs in that continent.
But it may be their last leg tho in South America  :duno:

The last time they went to South America, information was hard to come by. I'm not too surprised. We did find a local newspaper article with a picture and perhaps that will happen again.

I know we've got a sighting of teams on a plane to Buenos Aires, but I'm struggling to see the logic in it. If teams landed at Miami at half 6 in the morning, they'd likely be on a morning flight, which would get them in late in the evening. I'm sure teams aren't racing in the dark, so there's bound to be an HOO at that time of night. But surely they wouldn't do that on the first leg? It would render having separate flights meaningless.

Unless we really do have a THIRD flight somewhere.

Maybe they bring back...they always did HOO in 1st leg until S15.
And I think  this can explain timeline:
1st leg:NOV28
2nd leg:NOV30
Now in 3rd leg...
