Mystery TAR Sightings - Can You Figure These Out?

(1/8) > >>

Plaidmoon:
I've had a couple of sightings lately, complete with pictures, that look very much like some version of TAR being run. I have no idea if they are real and if so, what version it is. I'll throw them out here in case one of you can figure it out.

The first one is from last Saturday, Sept. 15th, in New York City. The person tweeting is from Australia and visiting New York City.

Here's the conversation about it from Twitter:

15 Sep Jacqueline Jacqueline ‏@xDJacquii
@bri_katexx oh okay, do you know when the next amazing race is starting?

15 Sep яє∂! яє∂! ‏@bri_katexx
@xDJacquii no clue! Thats the American one

15 Sep Jacqueline Jacqueline ‏@xDJacquii
@bri_katexx oh.. so you're in the US?

I'll post the picture below of a clue box. I suspect this was a local race, but if so, they did a great job of reproducing a clue box, though the red strip may be too wide. I suppose it's also possible that it was left over for TAR 21 filming a few months back, but it's hard to imagine someone not taking it for a souvenir before now.

This next sighting is more interesting. I found it on Flickr.com and I can't grab the pictures because all rights are reserved. They were taken August 8th in La Paz, Bolivia. Two pictures show what appear to be a TAR production team working with people dressed in zebra costumes. Amazing Race clue envelopes are present but no cameras.  Two others show the people dressed as zebras in a city square type area. The caption on one says it is a traffic safety campaign in La Paz.

Here are where you can find the pictures:

My first thought is that it was TAR Brazil, but everything I've heard said they didn't leave Brazil. I'm not sure they were filming on August 8th either. It certainly looks like a Latin or South American production team.

While we're on the subject of TAR Brazil, last spring I saw a van with the TAR Brazil/ Space logo on it taken in Acapulco, Mexico. At the time, I thought they were scouting locations, so I was really surprised when they stayed only in Brazil. I can't find the picture right now or I would post it here. I'll take a more thorough look later on and see if I can find it.

The Amazing Race Brazil probably visited La Paz, Bolivia according to the first preview. The filming finished on August 16, so this could be our race.

Also, one of the teams  in the last pic. looks like Caină & Fernanda.

Aussie:
ukraine?

Airlines:
Hmmm... maybe. Do we know if TARU has started filming yet?
