That scene could either explain :

A. All teams arrived in Buenos Aires early in the morning, so they face HOURS OF OPERATION, and run like crazy to get the clue....

B. Footrace towards the Pit Stop in Recoleta Park....

Border cops may be at the Ischigualasto/Talampaya National Parks in Argentina

http://www.the-world-heritage-sites.com/ischigualasto-talampaya-national-parks_argentina.htm

ETA: Could also be Sierra de las Quijadas National Park, as they look very similar.   :lol:

Tar Junkie999,

I doubt that either of those national parks were visited by AR20. The simple reason is distance. It is 800 km from San Luis, next to  de las Quijadas National Park and from National Park Talampaya to Buenos Aires there is a distance of 1,200 kms (driving through the 9th highway from Pan American ramal Escobar to Cordoba, Carlos Paz Highway, Route 38 up to Patquía, route 150 to get to the Talampaya National Park and route 76. From the city of La Rioja, take Route 38 to Patquía then continue along the 150).

That's a bit much, even if all teams were routed that way from Cafayete on the return to Buenos Aires, which would add several hundred km.

I wish I had an alternative hypothesis on which rock formations are in the photos in question. I am working on it but don't have any right now.

I'd throw some pics below, it's the Northwest Argentina Desert , Andean Highlights, in Jujuy Province, still around the vicinity of Salta....

I think it does, those pics that I've posted is the northwest desert of Andean highlights, andes mountain ranges, almost the border of Bolivia/Paraguay/Chile isn't it? Please correct me if I'm wrong :)

The line of thinking above in this thread can lead only one place according to my speculation. That is for teams to go from Salta (once they get there in 98 miles from Cafayete) 488 miles to Asuncion, Paraguay. They could make a little detour to some of the scenic rock formations on the Argentina side of that border. That is OK, but how does that impact on other observations elsewhere in AR20?

The first one is time-related. I guess teams could fly to Asuncion connecting in Buenos Aires, but I think a lengthy bus ride is more likely. Teams released on Nov. 29 would not reach Asuncion until late on Nov. 30. They are likely to finish that leg on Dec. 1 (which coincides with when they were actually observed if I recall that right).

I had been wedded to the notion that teams finished a Buenos Aires leg BEFORE Asuncion, but in this scenario it is after. Teams would fly for speed, as it would be Dec. 2 that the Buenos Aires leg would be started. Some teams would not have been able to make the better flight from Asuncion to Buenos Aires.

After a Dec. 2/3 leg, teams would be ready to fly out of Buenos Aires to Europe on the evening of Dec. 3.

Teams would arrive early on Dec. 4 wherever in Europe. Time to get to Neuschwanstein Castle, do a leg and get to Torino would be extremely tight.

I have some extra transportation information about Salta to Asuncion. It takes a minimum of 12 hours to fly with the connection. The bus is 14 hours to Corrientes, then 5 hours from Corrientes to Asuncion.

apskip, the only problem with your hypothesis are the CBS program listings that are already available (including my cable provider's onscreen listings.) The episode listing for episode 2 says that the Race continues in Buenos Aries, and for episode three it says Paraguay.

As to a reference to "the border" for this coming episode being discussed above or in one of the related threads, a look at any map would show that Buenos Aries is on or close to the border with Uruguay, which as I recall was crossed by water ferry from near Montevideo in TAR 5, leg 2.
