Iquique is one of the most importants cities in the north of our country. As you know is sorrounded by the desert and it has many interesting places inside and ouside the city. If i have to think in an extreme challange (like in many first legs), would be something like paragliding. There are a lot of high cliffs ariound the city.

Since there were no updates on the LA starting line, it may be like season 20 (Bridlewood Winery; Santa Barbara) when the starting line is in a weird location. Long Beach or Simi Valley perhaps? ???

Past but somehow recent pictures and video of paragliding in Iquique.

Quote: "Los vuelos duran entre 20 a 30 minutos en el aire dependiendo de las condiciones meteorológicas de cada día. Los vuelos se realizan desde  nuestro despegue de Alto Hospicio ubicado a 490 mts. sobre el nivel  del mar y dependiendo de las condiciones haremos un plan de vuelo  para fijar  nuestro aterrizaje que puede ser en una de nuestras tres playas de Iquique. (Playa Huayquique, Playa Brava o Playa Cavancha)."

Flights last between 20-30 minutes in the air depending on daily weather conditions. Flights take place from our "take-off" at Alto Hospicio, 490 metres above sea level and depending on conditions we will make a flight plan to set our landing which may be in one of our three beaches in Iquique. (Huayquique Beach, Playa Brava or Cavancha Beach).

Well... not typical. ;) The starting lines usually start in or near major cities like Chicago (6), Los Angeles (4, 12, 13, 15, 16, 22), and Seattle (10). If there was a Long Beach starting line, there would definitely be nearby closures you, a resident, probably would have noticed. I am suggesting they might have started the race at a less populous city. Maybe Laguna Beach...

TAR has done a phenomenal job of not being seen this time. Or being seen in multiple places at the same time. How did they do that? Very clever. But where in the world is TAR now? Keeps us guessing.

Confirmed Phil was in Lisbon...

Posted approx. 2 days ago (from my time GMT+8, 9.22AM now)


@my_travel_photo_journal

"With Amazing Race host, Phil Keoghan, what are chances of meeting him here!?"





Detect the exact spot guys... Lisbon town square maybe?




This is the Monumento a los Descubridores. It is a sort of square just in the river. There are two world globes like that, one at each side of the monumento. It is in the neighbourhood of Belem. There is a huge plaza not far from there, the Torre de Belem, the Monasterio de los Jeronimos, some sort of cultural centre, and a harbour.

PS. When we went there, my mom just sat on the white structure below the globe you can see in the further part of the picture.

BTW, I just did not read Boingo's reply. Yes, it is there. :)

Btw, Torre de Belém was the pitstop in Portugal in TAR3 :) But is in fact one of the best places to finish a leg of the race...and it makes sense if they went to Sintra. However, maybe Phil just wanted to visit the city and eat our fantastic Pastéis de Belém that are sold in a shop nearby the Monastery (Mosteiro dos Jerónimos :) )

If the show is filming, Phil doesn't have time to sight see, he's said that himself in one way or another on numerous occasions. He'd be there to either film a location stand-up to introduce the next leg, or a clue marker, or a pit stop. We don't see the pit stop mat, but it is possible that is out of camera view, along with production.

I have tried to find another angle from that site on the exact day as the picture shown, but found no luck.. There was though, one picture with people mingling in the middle of the square but couldn't see much because it's too far and the pixel gets blurred..
