OK, here's a twitter sighting that goes completely against what we know, but it has a picture that looks legitimate.

Is there another version of TAR filming?

According to the TAR AUS 2 timeline they were last seen in Dubai. It might be them!

Thanks, Prophet! I'll post it there. I was able to confirm that the sign in the background has Turkish words.

Look at this... i don't know if this was posted before.

https://twitter.com/#!/JuanOrtega46

Basically this guy is saying that he saw the teams of The Amazing Race in Foz de Iguazu.. he says he is going to post photos in "their site".The problem?? is another brand new user, but he is saying that he had to create this twitter account recently to "share the information with the world".

He says that he prefers facebook and in the last tweet says that it was his last tweet.  :duno:

To me it looks fake as hell  :lol:

That looks highly suspect... He wants people to go to his site or facebook but gives no link to them. Looks like a lazy troll.

I just found that tweet from Juan Ortega too. I think it's highly suspicious as well, but I asked him where his web site is.
I don't think he'd be posting in Spanish from Brazil. Iguacu Falls would be a nice destination, but I don't know if you'd go there through Buenos Aires rather than Rio De Janeiro. From looking at driving directions on Google maps, it's slightly closer to Buenos Aires than to Rio De Janeiro - 1300 km vs. 1500 km, not that they would be driving it.

I tried looking for Juan Ortega on Facebook, but it's about like typing in John Smith. Thousands of hits.

He saw right through my Google Spanish.  :lol:

I was going to question the Mesquita Omar Ibn Al-Khatab being in Brazil, but apparently it's a real site in Foz de Iguacu.

http://islam.com.br/index.php?option=com_phocagallery&view=category&id=1:mesquita-omar-ibn-al-khatab&Itemid=4

I still think he's probably a fake who's done some research.

Another tweet, this one in Portugese:

rafaellaeno Rafael Amareo
Olhar sobre o noticiário local, o show americano The Amazing Race visita o Brasil!
8 minutes ago

which translates to

Look on the local news, the American show The Amazing Race visits Brazil!

He also has no tweets before a few hours ago. He says he's in Itapipoca, Brazil, not too far from Fortaleza.

Hmmm.....now I'm getting accused of stalking.  :lol3:

Plaidmoon, The Amazing Race, I'm watching you... Why do you keep stalking people? It's kind of illegal to stalk people, you know?
3 minutes ago

This person's only other tweet is this:

PablogajdeJC Pablo Gajira
The Amazing Race en Juliaca? Hay rumores....¿Quién puede confirmar?
27 Nov

Juliaca is apparently in Southeastern Peru. It was posted while we were trying to figure where TAR was going to in South America and Peru was a possibility. It looks like someone is following our chatter and trying to mislead us. So far, it's been pretty easy to spot.

YEEEEAH IT IS!!! LOOK AT HIS TWEETS!!!

Eles viram-los a filmar em Itapipoca, uma cidade perto de Fortaleza. (They were seened filming in Itapipoca,a city close to Fortaleza)
Temporada 20 acabou de começar. O Brasil é o primeiro destino, quais atrações você acha que eles vão visitar? (Season 20 just started,Brazil is the first destination,which atractions do you think they are going to visit?)

Eles foram vistos perto da catedral de Itapipoca, se alguém quiser caçá-los. Pervertido; p (They were seened close to the Itapipoca Cathedral,if anywone wanna chase them. Perverts ;p)

I'm going to ask him if he saw something!!!

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

This guy definitely does not speak spanish. He used all very simple words, so he obviously does not live in Uruguay which is a spanish speaking country.

My posting of information around travel times for ferries, buses and planes involving Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Punta del Este and Iguacu Falls has been moved here:


Re: TAR 20 Speculation and Discussion **of Spoilers**
« Reply #188 on: Today at 09:06:12 AM »

It was in response to some of the dialogue on this thread claiming that sightings so far may be hoaxes. I was expressing a hope that AR20 actually does visit Iguacu Falls and Punta del Este again for throwbacks.
