NO..! It's MERCADO DE ABASTO..!!

if you compare cap 23 to this photo below, you'll see the same buildings with the wave-look-alike roof along with A LOT of watermelons



and i found the exact location of ONE of the DETOURS (since the other one took place at Metalurgica Punta de Rieles)..here it is:



it's only 2 blocks away from the main road

It would be nice to confirm this 100% for sure! Do you think the backpack throwing shots could be on campus as well? Knowing where that is might help frame in the tasks.

Tomorrow's good! You might see if there is a schedule for the auditoreum posted anywhere for the day we need...if it is "closed" that helps!

Can docol or whoever here spec on the most-likely activity that they're doing in Metalurgica? Is it just a route info to pick up a clue or there's a task? Coz we saw Nary/Jaime sliding down the slides ???

So my spec for the leg (with help from timeline spoilers) :

1. RI : Fly to Asuncion, Paraguay
2. RI : Plaza De La Democracia
3. RB : Bottle Dance
4. RI : Metalurgica Punta de Rieles
5. DT : - Mercado de Abasto (Watermelons Pyramid)
           - Saloon Auditorium of Asuncion's National University (Harp Tuning)
6. PS : Escalinata Antequera, Asunción


-->> I assume the Metalurgica is the additional RI to get the Detour Clue, not the actual task,

HERE'S the map of ALL the locations visited...




according to this, it's most likely that they went to the Metalurgica to receive the detour clue and then go to do the roadblock. that's my spec

I was wondering that the Roadblock was the only thing before the Pit Stop,i think i'm right so.

Monuments/Statues could be possible to put up the Roadblock clues at Plaza De La Democracia (if there's anything like it in the surrounding area)

There could be a possibility of searching task to look for a clue in Metalurgica, since they got heaps of slides, swings, and BBQ burners....

Good job Docol...  :yess:  :hearts:


Now, have you seen this graffiti somewhere in the streets?
I take a guess it's around Plaza Democracia or maybe around your campus ?!?
