I don't think we have ever had a mistake like this in the press releases before... Sure hope they won't be trying to portray this as being in Santiago!!  :ascared

How? Teams riding their bike for 24 hours from Iquique to Santiago to get in to a Salt Mine?  :funny:

That pretty much confirm the location of the Roadblock to be "Paseo Ahumada". A pedestrian street right next to "Plaza de Armas" As a side note IIRC that street is FULL with shoe stores for some odd reason.

The "Lustrabotas stand" is the thing Amy is carrying behind her BTW.

Wow. The breakdown of Leo & Jamal could be very Tammy & Victor-esque in terms of their storyline throughout the rest of the Race.

Didn't we see team Duck dynasty doing the salt bath too in one of the promo video's , unless i'm mistaken , maybe they had to switch detours.

Just an observation about the Brining Detour (must add salt to a pool of fresh water until they can float well enough to read a newspaper in order to receive the next clue on THE AMAZING RACE). It seems those with the body type better suited to floating chose the Mining Detour.  Better for us viewers, but maybe not the best race strategy.

I would have rocked this. Who needs salt, lol? I think I floated for 2 hours once in a lifeguard challenge.

I really don't understand the newspaper part of the task...   :crazy:

Also that's why I waited for the video, Rowan in the pic seems to be arguing but in the video he is begging...

Also I kinda like watching Leo&Jamal arguing with each other they seemed to friendly almost fake, but this will change they way they are gonna race.

Leo probably lost something, I can imagine Jamal blaming him for one of the challenges.

In the Dead Sea in Israel, saltiest sea on Earth, it is common to be floating so much that people can read a newspaper without geting the paper wet. I think it should be something similar. There are images for sure in google images about that. ;)

Based on this bit of information provided by Vitoko:

Quote
Route Info: "Irland 3 Salt Mine"
Teams took taxis from the museum to "Kilometro 21" (they might call it differently) from where they grabbed a bike and ride it to the abbandoned Irland 3 Salt mine, they were followed by a 4x4 pickup truck with camera and sound crew.

and this picture of Team Bingo riding the bikes:



I was able to find a likely location for the Detour.  The solar altitude indicated by the nose shadow says it is about 9:30 am.  At that time the sun was shining from azimuth 74.5 degrees.  Sincre the  sun is exactly at his left we know the roadway that he  is riding on is pointed with azimuth 74.5 + 90 = 164.5 degrees.   That helps to find the right stretch of roadway.  Looking within one taxi ride from Iquique I found a road with exactly that angle!  It's the A-750 south of and inland from town.

Here is Kilometro 21 in Streetview:  https://maps.google.com/maps?q=iquique+chile&ie=UTF8&ll=-20.856135,-70.062894&spn=0.013324,0.02223&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-a&hnear=Iquique,+Iquique+Province,+Tarapac%C3%A1+Region,+Chile&gl=us&t=h&z=17&layer=c&cbll=-20.856344,-70.062804&panoid=nL69pbWda0nPElFGtW4HlA&cbp=12,203.84,,0,16.68

From Kilometro 21 it is a 3.6 km ride to an abandoned salt mine.  Thanks to Vitoko, I believe this is the location of the Ireland 3 Salt Mine and our Detour.   :conf:

You got it backwards. Detour before bus ride to Santiago.

I guess I could do some research with local historians and stuff like that but is not really worth it. To be honest I didn't knew this thing existed before June and I've live here my entire life, I honestly don't remember where I found out about the name of Irland 3, it's been a long time since I got that information...  :umn:

Also that wikimapia says that the closest city is Tacna, La Paz and Arequipa... Not Iquique, Arica, La Tirana, Tocopilla, Alto Hospicio... so yeah...  blahblah
