Leg 3

La Paz, Bolivia and beyond ..(no photos  :'( )

La Paz, Bolivia 4/28/08


Updates on our life in (La Paz), Bolivia  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,15356.msg301059.html#msg301059l)
*ok, fun tidbits now! The day we took possession of our apartment we were crossing the park in front of our building and noticed a lot of people and some really weird all wood bicycles.
*I noticed a lot of the people around them looked like the rich gortex-wearing tourist we see and/or the Discovery Channel crew that worked with us last year.
*Then I noticed it: a yellow signed that said "U-Turn" with a yellow and red flag on it... It was The Amazing Race!!!!! (It's a fun reality show, google it if you don't know what it is) I was sooooooo excited! I was torn between staying there until contestants showed up or going into our apartment. Given Wes' lack of enthusiasm I decided to go back home. But hey, next Amazing Race they will be showing our building and our park!


Update (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,15356.msg303491.html#msg303491)

Hi peach,

sorry I didn't reply earlier, we didn't have any internet access for the last 10 days.
*As for your questions, it's a bit hard to remember (as I'm not as obsessed by details as you guys are!) but we are rather certain we saw the Amazing Race on May 28th in La Paz.  
*They were in Plaza Abaroa (sometime called Plaza Avaroa), in the neighborhood of Sopocachi. From our apartment, we also noticed a lot of commotions and big tv lighting in the parc of the Monticulo, near Plaza Espana.
*I am like 80% sure the sign said U-Turn but as soon as I shouted "Oh my god it's the Amazing Race" some of the workers covered the sign. I know it wasn't one of those thing where you can put the picture of another team.
*So just a big yellow sign with the flag beneath it. What else... The bikes were similar to the ones on the picture you sent but less shabby looking. And they were next to wooden head gear with lots of feathers on it. I didn't see any teams. Oh, but also, there were lots of brass bands typical of Bolivia. I'm not sure why they were there.

Blog: Santa Cruz, Bolivia 4/29/08

 Blog:Santa Cruz to Buenos Aires   (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,15356.msg300928.html#msg300928)
Tuesday  4/29/08 

Now, airports are not on my list of favourite places to be stuck at the best of times, and unfortunately Santa Cruz airport is fairly small - apart from when we saw Phil Keoghan (of Amazing Race fame) waiting for a plane too - now we are wondering if the Amazing Race was in town - that would be cool!

Santiago, Chile 4/30/08

Teams seen in Santiago Airport:
My flight out of Santiago   by Justin Vorel      (http://thenomadlife.blogspot.com/2008/05/my-flight-out-of-santiago.html)
*And as a special bonus the several teams from the Amazing Race through the airport while I was there.

More from Jason (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,15372.msg300503.html#msg300503)
*He was in the airport on April 30th.
*He saw teams, each accompanied by a camera and sound guy start arriving in the early evening.
*They all appeared exhausted and after ticketing at different counters, some went for a bite to eat and some just crashed. He emphasized that he didn't know what they had been doing, but all seemed tired and dirty.
*He saw teams arriving in 2 "waves".
*The first prob 5 to 6 teams (some difficulty sorting out camera people from teams) arriving earlier maybe 4-5PM and the second smaller group of 1 or 2-3 arriving an hour or so later.

Re teams:
*He saw 2 girls he called "the sisters" (but could have been friends also) dressed in blue shirts
*2 younger teams --couples he thinks
*One older gray haired maybe 45 yrs man (unclear here whether racer or production)
*He points out that almost all the Int flights leave Santiago in the eve. He thinks most of the teams were going by 7+ or so. His flight left about 8.

RACERS PUT THEIR LUNGS AND WRESTLING SKILLS TO THE TEST IN THE HIGH ALTITUDE OF BOLIVIA, ON "THE AMAZING RACE 13," SUNDAY, OCT. 12 

"Did You Push My Sports Bra Off the Ledge?" -
*When Teams square off against a Bolivian wrestling group, Racers find themselves struggling for every breath due to the high altitude,
*The high altitude of La Paz, Bolivia leaves one Racer breathless—literally. Will he be able to catch his breath before it’s too late?
*Racers don spandex and take up the mantle of Fighting Cholitas.
*One Racer flies out of control on a Stone Age bike and a conflict over a sports bra sparks a mad-dash to the U-Turn.
*and an argument over a lost piece of clothing carries over to the course as two Teams battle to avoid elimination.

Q. This season's show includes stops in three new countries: Bolivia, Cambodia and Kazakhstan, the former Soviet republic best known as Borat's fictional homeland. Impressions?
A. La Paz, Bolivia, is the most extraordinary city. We fly in (to one of the world's highest airports at 13,000 feet) and climb from there up to this place where the teams have to perform with cholitas, or female wrestlers.

Thanks, Puddin.  :yess: According to this article (http://www.tomcoyner.com/in_this_corner.htm), El Alto (isn't that the airport town?) is the center of Cholita action. And there's a TAR tie-in: the director/producer (http://www.motofilms.com/moto2007.html) (click "about")  of "The Fighting Cholitas" used to work TAR.

Could the bike be the roadblock? They do the Detour and hit the U-Turn and Roadblock at the same time, like India last time I think.

The buildings that appear in the shot have green boxes around them in the GE image.

Here is a panoramio shot of the more distant building.  It looks like a good match to me.  It's the building with the yellow diamonds at the top.

(http://mw2.google.com/mw-panoramio/photos/medium/6414989.jpg)

I suspect the biking racer started at El Prado (http://www.tiwy.com/pais/bolivia/la-paz/prado/viewphoto.phtml?prado) (a fancy boulevard) and rides 3/4 to 1 mile (depends on where along the boulevard they start) and went down to the 'park across the street' from our Canadian ex-pat's condo.  That destination is the Plaza Abaroa (http://www.panoramio.com/photo/3494621) where she saw production milling around wooden bikes.  The elevation drop is 11830 to 11680 feet along the ride.

I can't find the quote now but I remember they are supposed to go down a steep cobblestoned street--we had a lot of posts about where that street might be, I think thru a market/shopping street w/ museums on it? I'll have to go look...

But nice on the building! Does GE do cobblestones?? :lol3:

• As for the challenges, “We’ve really outdone ourselves in the department of outrageousness,”  Van Munster declares. “We have a situation in Bolivia where we have the [contestants] go down a cobblestone hill on very, very primitive bikes, and it’s just the most hilarious thing you’ve ever seen in your life. It’s a truly bone-jarring experience

Until more info comes in, it may be a waste of time looking for a particular cobblestone street. Our blogger friend saw the bikes at Plaza Abaroa (http://www.flickr.com/photos/eastlincolnstreet/220387975/) in the Sopocachi neighborhood, and as this blog (http://blogs.bootsnall.com/theglobaltrip/updates/2004_01.shtml) implies, cobblestone is everywhere:

Should be hilarious for me to watch, but probably not so funny for the racers -- at least, at the time.

Good jobs Boingo and Chateau!!  :jumpy:

Okay, do ALL the teams do the bikes? Because cholitas is the roadblock, so if it is a detour choice both team members do it.

But I'm getting the feeling it is a get a clue at the end kind of thing that everyone has to do...right? Maybe the very first task?  ???

Peach, i agree and think the bikes will be a task like the candy.

also looking at the video by the wrestling.

are the last 3 teams, geeks, pinkies, eyebrows?

if so it looks like tina/ken get out first that would leave a race btw pinkies and geeks for elimination.

When Toni is cheering for Dallas we see most of the teams sat in a line

Don't forget we have the dreaded U-Turn near the bike option which sounds like a detour to me.......

*ok, fun tidbits now! The day we took possession of our apartment we were crossing the park in front of our building and noticed a lot of people and some really weird all wood bicycles.
*I noticed a lot of the people around them looked like the rich gortex-wearing tourist we see and/or the Discovery Channel crew that worked with us last year.
*Then I noticed it: a yellow signed that said "U-Turn" with a yellow and red flag on it... It was The Amazing Race!!!!!
*They were in Plaza Abaroa (sometime called Plaza Avaroa), in the neighborhood of Sopocachi. From our apartment, we also noticed a lot of commotions and big tv lighting in the parc of the Monticulo, near Plaza Espana.
*I am like 80% sure the sign said U-Turn but as soon as I shouted "Oh my god it's the Amazing Race" some of the workers covered the sign. I know it wasn't one of those thing where you can put the picture of another team.
*So just a big yellow sign with the flag beneath it. What else... The bikes were similar to the ones on the picture you sent but less shabby looking. And they were next to wooden head gear with lots of feathers on it. I didn't see any teams. Oh, but also, there were lots of brass bands typical of Bolivia. I'm not sure why they were there.

Anybody have some good U turn box shots? I can double check this with them pretty quickly if you want...

The U-turn boxes I remember DO have the place for the picture and she doesn't think what she saw did, so U turn might be a little iffy. But we have a way to ask again if needed. :angel:

Did anyone mention that Phil arrived in La Paz on Sunday 5/25 and the U-Turn set up was witnessed on the 28th, so Fortaleza was a obvious extended pitstop.

I would agree with that. Phil and Barry fighting the cholitas is great comedy. I am going to guess that no AR13 participant, not even Ken, can win against a cholita unless the cholita is throwing the match(which I expect all are expected to do to allow the individuals fighting to be able to finish and leave).

RACERS PUT THEIR LUNGS AND WRESTLING SKILLS TO THE TEST IN THE HIGH ALTITUDE OF BOLIVIA, ON "THE AMAZING RACE 13," SUNDAY, OCT. 12
"Did You Push My Sports Bra Off the Ledge?" - When Teams square off against a Bolivian wrestling group, Racers find themselves struggling for every breath due to the high altitude, and an argument over a lost piece of clothing carries over to the course as two Teams battle to avoid elimination, on THE AMAZING RACE 13, Sunday, Oct 12 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Q. This season's show includes stops in three new countries: Bolivia, Cambodia and Kazakhstan, the former Soviet republic best known as Borat's fictional homeland. Impressions?
A. La Paz, Bolivia, is the most extraordinary city. We fly in (to one of the world's highest airports at 13,000 feet) and climb from there up to this place where the teams have to perform with cholitas, or female wrestlers.

Finally --

*Did You Push My Sports Bra Off the Ledge?
*The high altitude of La Paz, Bolivia leaves one Racer breathless—literally. Will he be able to catch his breath before it’s too late?
*Racers don spandex and take up the mantle of Fighting Cholitas.
*One Racer flies out of control on a Stone Age bike and a conflict over a sports bra sparks a mad-dash to the U-Turn.

1) Christy to Nick
2) Mark/Bill
3) Roadblockers
4) Christy & Kelly vs Nick & Starr (I wonder if that scene is Nick trying to talk C/K out of using the U-Turn)

Puddin, I think you are right about the u-turn clue because I don't see C/K u-turning Nick/Starr because we know Nick and Starr aren't eliminated in this leg... Unless Nick/Star do get u-turned but still are so far ahead that they avoid being eliminated?

Brooke, Bill, Toni, KellyStarr, Aja, and Terence I think, which suggests they may be the NON Roadblockers.

We see so far Ken, Mark, Dallas, Dan, and Marisa doing the Roadblock.  A female in yellow that I am not totally sure about? Is that Kelly or Christy? ???

The yellow racer wrestler --see pic from above...

How are you separating out early and late groups please when we see them all together?  ???

Do you think the order they sit in has something to do with it or just coincidence?

I was thinking Ken & Tina one of the first in that group. and Dallas next...

The bench where the first group was sitting is empty now (the picture that I attached above), and since Dallas is on stage and Toni is cheering they are ahead of the later group.

Another point, why would Christy/Kelly Nick & Starr be racing to the U-Turn after the Roadblock if they were in the later group? .. just incase one of the earlier teams did not use it? Unless I'm making assumptions that is who the clue is referring to but the bra thing = argue over a piece of clothing so?

* conflict over a sports bra sparks a mad-dash to the U-Turn.
* and an argument over a lost piece of clothing carries over to the course as two Teams battle to avoid elimination

And we know, only Bill/Mark or Marisa/Brooke are not safe this leg .........wahhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Title: Re: EP3: 10/12 'Did You Push My Sports Bra Off the Ledge?'
Post by: georgiapeach on October 06, 2008, 08:43:07 PM
I'm totally confused here now...

What do we think comes first? The bikes or the Roadblock wrestlers? I thought we were thinking Roadblock due to the proximity to the airport?

The U-turn should be near the place where they get the bikes right? That's where our source saw the bikes, the headdresses, the U-turn sign all together.

So maybe Roadblock, then bikes (might or might not be a Detour choice>>prob is)....

But why in the world would K/C be hanging around chatting with Nick? If they U-turned Nick/Starr, wouldn't they be long gone? I am trying to imagine a scenario that gives them time to discuss the issue in the same place if they are talking U-turn.
If Nick is apologizing for U-turning them, then same logic--why would he be hanging around?

I'll take puddin's word on it being Kelly, but I agree that it is hard to see.

Re who wrestles first:

That shot of Marisa or Brooke facing the line of cholitas does seem to make it look as though they are there first...but that would be some flight upset if the last team to leave is the first to arrive at the RB so maybe we are putting too much on that one shot?

So I thought Ken/Tina the Geeks and the Blondes are there first (empty bench) and then the others arrive. Perhaps you enter the ring more than once? Throw your wrestler or get a time delay (like the dancing in Burkina Faso) and have to go to the back of the line and come try again?

What seems like it could be a different time are the ones we don't see in that bunch ringside:

Seen together in the same general time are Tina/Ken, Brooke/Marisa, Mark/Bill, and then we also see Brooke/Marisa, Mark/Bill, Nick/Starr, Toni/Dallas, Ty/Aja, and Terence/Sarah.  

That makes me think Ken/Tina  are gone before N/S, T/D, T/A, and T/S   arrive...

But NOT seen with that ringside bunch are Andrew/Dan, Kelly/Christie so they could be earlier or later.  The reason that is interesting is that in one of the Insider chats this week, Dan and Andrew talk about thinking about U-turning Kelly/ Christie.

Quote
But why is Toni cheering "thats my boy!" if he appears to be on stage?

That's when she WOULD be yelling for him, right? As he gets his clue and finshes? "Yay, that's my boy that just did such a good job wrestling this cholita and got the clue and now we can leave"?

So I was thinking of the ones seen with Toni, she and Dallas prob accomplish the task and get the clue first.


But if this is the first task it really doesn't matter because the Detours could still really change the times, right?

I think Phil lays it out for us Boingo

OK, lets speculate about the order of the tasks.  Given the Cholita wrestling venue (El Alto) is right next to the airport, I'd guess roadblock comes before detour.  That would mean pitstop is somewhere in central La Paz.   :angel:  Or maybe not....  :lol:

Q. This season's show includes stops in three new countries: Bolivia, Cambodia and Kazakhstan, the former Soviet republic best known as Borat's fictional homeland. Impressions?
A. La Paz, Bolivia, is the most extraordinary city. We fly in (to one of the world's highest airports at 13,000 feet) and climb from there up to this place where the teams have to perform with cholitas, or female wrestlers.

I wrote above, I think C/K beat Nick & Starr to the cluebox and I think Nick is trying to talk C/K out of using the U-Turn on he and Starr but thats a guess, who knows? lol

I think they start the bike ride at the Bolivar statue and ride to the park where our source saw the bikes.  It's down hill to get there.  So the U-turn is not by the Bolivar statue.  But maybe they find out about it at the statue.

I doubt if TAR would allow the racers to ride their wooden bikes on such a busy avenue... they would be at great risk in traffic.  I suspect a smaller side street instead, if here at all.

I always thought that our source saw the bikes in her park before teams arrive. So if the bikes are there, then teams need to collect them there, right? And start the ride there right?  And that park is where in relation to this statue?  :duno:

And the park is where the U-turn sign is too.

But SUPER job on the Bolivar statue!!

I suspected that she sees the bikes there during or after the arrivals.  There could be 18 of them ultimately.

They can't start the ride there because it is at a lower elevation.  And the first promo clip of the racer on a wooden bike is pin pointed to be on his way to the park.

Okay now that makes sense to me...  Nice, Chateau!  :jumpy:

So they start the bikes here, and end in the park >>and that's where the U-turn is...

So we are gonna have a bunching and all the Roadblock times will prob not even matter... :groan:

So....what's the other Detour?  :funny:  Anybody have any ideas??

And this is the 28th, they aren't seen in Santiago for the flight to Auckland till 4/30, and now that we know that Santiago isn't a leg, this has to be an extended pitstop.

BTW the El Prado/bike ride shots are April 28th while the Cholita shots are April 27th.  So they had an overnight situation where they could wash clothes and get their underwear tossed about  :lol:

Maybe they are at an 'hours of operation' for the bike ride to start.  It looks early, no sun.

No wonder this shot is in the dark.  :jam:  hours of operation.

edit:
I see some park benches behind them.
I think we thinks thats Praia de Iracema (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,16735.msg352657.html#msg352657), Fortaleza but we never did get a perfect match banzai. ....wouldn't they be cold?

Not really, Peach. It was done 11 days ago at:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
EPISODE 3 FLIGHTS
I have taken a fresh look at the flights from Fortaleza to either Santa Cruz or LaPaz Bolivia for episode 3, based on looking at each leg through Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, and Lima. This is a very difficult route with long connections. Although the distances are not like Argentina to Moscow or Ushuaia to Maputo, it will take 12 hours or more to do this. Here are the possiblities for Fortaleza to Santa Cruz:

Best if pitstop release time is in the afternoon is JJ3849 FOR GRU 1515 1835 connecting in SaoPaulo with G37460 GRU VVI 2200 0115. There is a slightly earlier alternate fOR GRU - G31883 1440 1810.

The one most teams are likely to get is JJ3325 FOR GRU 0730 1130 connecting in Sao Paulo with 5L301 GRU VVI 1600 1730.

If a leading team is released by midnight, then they could get JJ3323 FOR GRU 0130 0500 connecting in Sao Paulo with AR1263 SRU EZE 0630 0925 and connecting in Buenos Aires with AR1362 EZE VVI 1115 1320.

Other routes from GRU to VVI through EZE are inferior; only this one above works for AR13.

For FOR LPB there are few options and the best is taking the middle option for get on 5L301 which goes GRU VVI and then continues on to LPB after a lengthy stopover, arriving at 2115; summarizing, it is 5L301 GRU LPB 1600 2115. In front of that you have JJ3325 FOR GRU 0730 1130.

Another option to LPB is to go through LIM.  We start FOR GRU with JJ3325 0730 1130. Next is GRU LIM LP780 1450 1810. finally, we have 5L1405 LIM LPB 2130 0015 or 3 hours later than the prior combination.


And if you are also thinking about next week's flights, they were done at post #170 soon after.

puddin, actually wayno is not a type of song. It is a musical group called Group Wayno. It performs primarily in Peru but given the proximity of Bolivia(particularly the eastern end of Lake Titicaca where LaPaz is near) I am guessing that they also get to Bolivia.

 :lol:  Found this travel guide (http://www.southwindadventures.com/faq_bolivia.htm) for Bolivia travelers, particularly elevation adjustment.  :res:

Quote
How do I adjust to the altitude?
Gradual exposure to higher elevation and time are the only sure ways to acclimate. When possible, arriving to La Paz (elevation 11,930') a day early or starting your trip with an extension to Sucre (elevation 9,155') for 2-3 days will help. It is also recommended to drink plenty of water, eat lightly and avoid alcoholic beverages for the first day or two. Many travelers find that drinking coca tea is also effective
hmmm... wonder if TAR is kind enough to give them one day to adjust.... naaaah!   :groan: :funny:

We know from a photo that one of them is really being impacted by the difficulty of breathing at high altitudes. That can almost shut you down wherever you are. It happened to me on an Alp 30-odd years ago and was pretty scary. It would be difficult to overcome that if the race was otherwise close.

From one of Tony and Stephs many interviews  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,16730.msg355145.html#new)

Reality TV World: Is there any particular team you're rooting for to win?

Anthony: Well, we got along with everybody so well that when we got eliminated we were like "God bless the team that wins and hats off to them. They deserve it if they can make it through all the way." So we didn't really have one team we were pulling for or anything so...

Stephanie: Yeah I'd say [ I'd root more] for [Mark Yturralde] and [Bill Hahler] or [Ken Greene] and Tina

Anthony: I'd like to see Marisa and Brooke get as far as possible...

Sunrise is at 6:44AM (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/astronomy.html?n=124&month=4&year=2008&obj=sun&afl=-11&day=1). This area has to be hour of operation. There's no sunlight. Pick up a Detour clue at 9AM.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Detour is "Long way down" or "Short search up".

In "Long way down" teams ride bike downhill to Plaza Abaroa (http://wikimapia.org/1627612/es/Plaza-Abaroa).

I'm not ready to see Mark & Bill go.  I don't think the oxygen mask plays a big factor in their progress through the leg.

Remember that the oxygen mask scene is on April 27th just after they land at El Alto.  Whereas the shot of Mark by the government building is in the morning of the next day.  From there, I suspect, they get the clue to go find Bolivar at El Prado.

Other teams could feel threatened by Mark & Bill and a leading team could decide to implement the U-Turn on them at Plaza Avaroa.   (:;)

Oh no, that could be it for them.   :'(

If that area is 9:32AM, .....

(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR13/ep3/th_06Oct0079.jpg)

then this area is around 9:22AM; 10 minutes less. It's not that far from the tunnel.

Since the bike has no brake and the racers can't read map while going downhill, the route must be a straight line on the same avenue.
If they go zig zag at each intersection, they have to stop and read maps.

(http://img122.imageshack.us/img122/1402/bikeroute1lq3.jpg)

My guess is they start at point 1, 2, 3, or 4.  :duno:

Left to right in banzai's pic I think it is:

Brooke, Bill, Toni, KellyStarr, Aja, and Terence I think, which suggests they may be the NON Roadblockers.

We see so far Ken, Mark, Dallas, Dan, and Marisa doing the Roadblock.  A female in yellow that I am not totally sure about? Is that Kelly or Christy? ???

The video clearly shows Marisa doing the wrestling --but why 2 in a row?? :duno:

For this wrestling Roadblock, does anyone think that the arrangement of teams in the chairs is related to the order of their teammates wrestling?

I see how teams would sign up for the wrestling order (take numbers, sign list, etc.), but will teams be allowed to leave wrestling once their turn is over or must they watch the other teams wrestle and then leave in some pre-determined method?

Totally awesome hotel find Puddin!   :jam:

I knew the teams had to go do something in Fortaleza prior to seeking flights.

We've got a ton of time to burn to make things fit.  And that burns it good.

Well, Chateau that depends on when teams reached the pitstop in Fortaleza and how long the pitstop is. Teams landed in Fortaleza around 0945 April 25 and might have taken most of daylight hours to do their tasks. I don't know when they finished, but 4pm plus or minus is probably a reasonable guess. With a 12 hour pitstop, that would release them around 4am on April 26. The best set of flights to LaPaz is JJ3325 FOR GRU 0730 1130, combined with 5L301 GRU LPB 1600 2115. That gives teams maybe 210 minutes after pitstop release to be departing on JJ3325 and they need to get to the Fortaleza airport, go through security and to buy tickets. That doesn't sound like a lot of time to burn to me.

It's not leaving Fort, the locations aren't far from each other; it's just that Chateau thinks there might be a route info stop near the beach, and I'm thinking the Crianca area gets a little skanky in the middle of the night.

It could be that if the roadblocker "wins" then the team can leave and if they lose the team would have to get to the back of the line (like the ice bar task in TAR 6)

It sure looks that way to me. I am confused, however, by the sight of two professionals in the ring with the wrestler. One appears female and one male. It is possible that it is a 2 on 1 tag team with the AR13 wrestler getting the help of a cholita to fight a male wrestler(the ones shown in the photo).

6)  Nick & Starr
7)  Aja & Ty

1)  Terence & Sara arrive ahead of Nick & Starr because there are no vendor tents  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,17615.msg355214.html#msg355214)

2)  In this shot, Tina is cheering Ken because he has satisfied the Roadblock by doing whatever to the Cholita.
Terence & Sara are nowhere to be seen (because they have finished it and they are gone now).  Marisa & Brooke are there in 'next' position.  Mark & Bill are there in 'next' position after Marisa & Brooke.  Nobody else is there yet.

(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR13/ep3/002310-6-2008.jpg)

3)  In this shot we see that more teams have arrived.  Next in the line up are Toni & Dallas, Nick & Starr, Aja & Ty, and Andrew & Dan.  We know this group of teams has arrived after the other teams on the bench because of the outside shot of Nick & Starr exactly where Terence & Sara where but now there are vendor tents in the background.  Marisa and Mark have failed to beat their Cholitas and the ring is passed on to Dallas.  Here we see Toni cheering because Dallas has satisfied the Roadblock.

(http://img48.imageshack.us/img48/1943/roadblock2ue8.jpg)
4)  I placed Kelly & Christy at the end as opposed to the beginning because they have trouble reading clues  (:;)  They may still be in Fortaleza.  But, really, that part is arbitrary.

Arrival times:  Yes, it's really tight.  Take a look at the shadow on the sidewall of the pool directly behind the racers when they are on the mat.  There is not much water in the pool so we see the sidewall .  And it is a curved wall as in the side of the pool is curved as you walk around it.  That means that the shadow line will slide along the wall as the sun moves westward.  That shadow line barely moved at all for the first 5 teams.  For the next 3 teams it has moved a few inches.  Finally, for the eliminated team it has moved by a few feet (we don't ever get to hear their check in time but I guess they were apart form the other teams by a wide margin considering how tight those 8 were).  But still, even seeing the shadow move by a few feet on that curved wall is 20 min tops.  Maybe Tony & Stephanie had a flat tire  :funny:

It's a mob finish!

Thinking about the altitude here:

Having climbed to more than 16000 feet, (Mt Kenya), I remember the headache, sleeplessness, and fatigue pretty well.

I am thinking that all of our guys (not just Mark) may well feel the effects of the altitude here, perhaps making them even more cranky w/ each other than usual?

Our racers have no chance to follow the recommended acclimitisation and certainly no chance to rest and take it easy for a few days...

From a great article by Rick Curtis, Director, Outdoor Action Program, Princeton University. (link below)

Quote
Altitude is defined on the following scale High (8,000 - 12,000 feet [2,438 - 3,658 meters]), Very High (12,000 - 18,000 feet [3,658 - 5,487 meters]), and Extremely High (18,000+ feet [5,500+ meters]). Since few people have been to such altitudes, it is hard to know who may be affected. There are no specific factors such as age, ***, or physical condition that correlate with susceptibility to altitude sickness. Some people get it and some people don't, and some people are more susceptible than others.

Quote
Symptoms usually start 12-24 hours after arrival at altitude and begin to decrease in severity about the third day. The symptoms of Mild AMS are headache, dizziness, fatigue, shortness of breath, loss of appetite, nausea, disturbed sleep, and a general feeling of malaise. Symptoms tend to be worse at night and when respiratory drive is decreased. Mild AMS does not interfere with normal activity and symptoms generally subside within 2-4 days as the body acclimatizes. As long as symptoms are mild, and only a nuisance, ascent can continue at a moderate rate.


If the altitude sickness were to be severe, immediate descent would be indicated, perhaps requiring a medical elimination:

Quote
Moderate AMS includes severe headache that is not relieved by medication, nausea and vomiting, increasing weakness and fatigue, shortness of breath, and decreased coordination (ataxia). Normal activity is difficult, although the person may still be able to walk on their own. At this stage, only advanced medications or descent can reverse the problem.


Here is all you'll ever need to know about high altitude sickness: :lol:
More prevention, causes, treatment info...

Cocoa tea   :tup:

Banzai, are you sure you don't mean Mate de Coca tea? The website you provided says it is cocoa tea, but I believe that its authors are substituting "Cocoa" for "coca" in their translation to English. Here are some statements from a variety of articles:

Bolivia, the world's third biggest cocaine producer, should redesign its coat of arms to include coca leaves

The coca leaf can also be used to make tea, and as such provides many of the same medicinal qualities. The use of coca in its boxed tea form is more predominant in upper class Bolivian society. Among the rural population in Bolivia, it is estimated that that 60-80% of the population consumes coca in the traditional acullico form. That number increases to approximately 90% when other forms of usage, such as tea and medicinal preparations, are included.

Coca is a plant in the family Erythroxylaceae, native to north-western South America. The plant plays a significant role in traditional Andean culture. Coca leaves contain cocaine alkaloids, a basis for the drug cocaine, which is a powerful stimulant.
Coca should not be confused with the similarly named South American cocoa bean from which chocolate is made.

Coca tea, also called mate de coca, is a tisane (herbal tea) made using the leaves of the coca plant. It is made either by submerging the coca leaf or dipping a tea bag in hot water. The tea originates from the Andes mountain range, particularly Peru. The leaves of the coca plant contain several alkaloids including cocaine; in fact, they comprise the sources for cocaine's chemical production, though the amount of cocaine in the leaves is so small, around 0.2%

About the tea: TAR7 racers were given some mate at the Cusco airport. They didn't have to pay, and I'm not sure if it was sponsored by production or the city/airport (about 4:10 into the video here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgfIwk6OVGo)). It's not illegal in Bolivia (far from it), so either it wasn't handed out this time for unknown reasons, or it was used but just didn't "take" (El Alto is nearly 700m higher than Cusco).

Michael, I basicallly agree with you. It looks like mid-afternoon to me and on April 27, sunrise was at 644am and sunset was 617pm. With the shadows of a mid-afternoon sun that was in the southwest, I am going to take a guess at direction and say that they are walking in the direction of northeast.

EDITOR's NOTE - I have fogotten that in the fall the sun in the Southern Hemisphere should move from northeast to northwest. In mid afternoon, that would make the shadows be in the direction of southeast.

Plaza Abaroa is flat. There's no hill.
So I guess it's Monticulo park.

You can see a big hill behind them. It's like a mountain too.

Where did she get the bowler hat from?

You already know the answer to that. Teams fly out from Santiago on May 30, so being in LaPaz at least 2 days later(June 1) is not possible. However, information I have from the "Holidays and Festivals in Bolivia" on about.com states that

Late May or early June   El Gran Poder La Paz

So there is yet hope for your wish.

EDITOR'S NOTE - I know better but the lateness of the evening was mangling my thoughts. It was April 30 and there is no possibility of any interaction with el Gran Poder since it starts at least one month later.

In addition: cholita wear (http://clamormagazine.org/issues/37/culture.php) and an ethnographic site (http://www.bolivia.at.tf/) with photos/videos/etc. (the intro mask may be for the diablada dance)

You are right g-man, Justin saw the teams in Santiago as they departed on April 30 and the race completed on 5/14 so early June is sadly not possible.

I can hardly wait to see this play out Slowhatch  :lol:  :yess:
The mask I was thinking is Cholita related and if it doesn't show up tomorrow night I guess we'll know one way or the other << stating the obvious   :lol:

Here's a fresh look at all the possible flight routes that teams could take going from Fortaleza to La Paz. 

The constraints I have used to make this collection are
1)  Teams can catch their flight out as early as 2 am on April 26th
2)  Teams must arrive at La Paz airport by 2 pm in the afternoon of April 27th

Turns out there were quite a few ways to do this.  But, each team will have to make their flight out of Fortaleza using one of these six flights to Sao Paulo or Rio:

FOR GIG JJ 3255 2:40 AM 5:50 AM
FOR GIG G3 1995 2:50 AM 6:20 AM
FOR GIG G3 1826 6:00 AM 9:25 AM

FOR GRU G3 1403 6:05 AM 9:50 AM
FOR GRU JJ 3325 8:00 AM 11:30 AM
FOR GRU G3 1773 11:50 AM 3:30 PM

And, at the arrival end, each team will have to arrive, April 27th, on one of these five flights from Lima, Miami, Cuzco, or Santa Cruz

LIM LPB TA 39 9:30 PM 12:20 AM
MIA LPB AA 922  11:10 PM 5:30 AM
CUZ LPB 5L 451 8:00 AM 10:55 AM
VVI LPB 5L 450 6:45 AM 7:45 AM
VVI LPB 5L 126 1:00 PM 2:00 PM

For teams that use the VVI as their connection they will have to get there through Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, or Lima.

Here are th e full itineraries for each arrival mode:

 LIM VVI TA 35 9:55 PM 1:30 AM  ar April 27th
 VVI LPB 5L 450 6:45 AM 7:45 AM  27-Apr

 LIM VVI TA 35 9:55 PM 1:30 AM  ar April 27th
 VVI LPB 5L 450 6:45 AM 7:45 AM  27-Apr


So, in summary, the best possibility will be the route leaving as late as 8:00 am from FOR to GRU to EZE to LIM to LPB arriving at 12:20 am on the 27th.   :jam:  That route does contain an iffy connection time of 45 min in Lima.  Maybe that is too risky  :ascared, so the next best route leaves at 6:05 am from FOR to GRU to MIA to LPB arriving at 5:30 am on the 27th.   :jam:  All the routes using Santa Cruz arrive as early as 7:45 am on the 27th (if the 7:45 am flight is full they have to use the next one arriving in La Paz at 2:00 pm).  The Cuzco way will put teams into La Paz at 10:55 am on the 27th.

So we think teams basically all arrive in El Alto at the same time?
Teams perform the Cholita Roadblock in order of arrival but there is something the Roadblocker has to do to earn the clue, maybe stay away from the Cholita and not get knocked down after so many minutes? something something, if you fail you go to the back of the line and wait your turn, over and over until the task is completed the right way.
The teams earn one of those "departure times" by completing the Roadblock in fastest to slowest?
The teams stay somewhere in El Alto that night causing Nick to push Christy's sports bra off the ledge?  :funny:
Teams depart El Alto by taxi? in order of the departure times?

Some choose the Detours: Flintstones bikes or shopping list?.. something something...
We know there's a U-Turn  ..someone someone or maybe not

I guess it depends on which Detour fits what team like if the Blonds choose shopping, this might be right up their alley, they are girls that like to shop afterall :monroe:

order of pitstop arrival? your guess is as good as mine based on no real promo evidence at all but I'll guess Ken & Tina finish top 3.

So who goes? 2 teams not witnessed in Cambodia (Leg 5) ...Bill/Mark or Marisa/Brooke. I'll sadly guess what most of us are thinking, the Blonds for the title (Leg4) Mark and Bill eliminated, the high altitude might be what does them in  :'(   :dontgo: :crybabe: :vader: :hero: .

Chateau,

I did all the analyses(except Cuzco; I stopped at Lima; also, you did not show anything connecting through Asuncion) you show and your results do not match mine as displayed on Timetables and Flight Information thread for May 27 starting after 1201 am.

JJ3325 FOR GRU 0730 1130 connecting in Sao Paulo with 5L301 GRU VVI 1600 1730 combined with 5L211 VVI LPB is the best. You can take JJ3323 FOR GRU 0030 0500,  and it gets yoou to VVI sooner, but it does not get you to LPB until the same flight as above.  A request to see if starting at midnight you could get to LPB earlier tielded a negative result. These reults are 4 hours 20 minutes before your routes get teams to LaPaz.

Thanks Apskip, I overlooked the evening flights out of VVI.  With those now in mind agree that the best route will be by way of Santa Cruz.  Here are the itineraries:

Arriving from Santa Cruz via Buenos Aires thru Sao Paulo

 FOR GRU G3 1403 6:05 AM 9:50 AM
 GRU EZE AR 1263 7:35 AM 10:30 AM
or GRU EZE RG 8630 8:30 AM 11:30 AM
or GRU EZE JJ 8010 10:20 AM 1:10 PM
or GRU EZE AR 1241 11:00 AM 1:55 PM
or GRU EZE G3 7453 10:50 AM 1:40 PM
or GRU EZE RG 8632 12:00 PM 3:00 PM
 EZE VVI 5L 211 4:00 PM 5:45 PM
 VVI LPB 5L 211 7:00 PM 8:00 PM
or VVI LPB 5L 301 10:00 PM 11:00 PM

Arriving from Santa Cruz via Buenos Aires thru Rio

 FOR GIG JJ 3255 2:40 AM 5:50 AM
or FOR GIG G3 1995 2:50 AM 6:20 AM
or FOR GIG G3 1826 6:00 AM 9:25 AM
 GIG EZE AR 1251 9:50 AM 1:05 PM
or GIG EZE JJ 8016 10:30 AM 1:50 PM
or GIG EZE RG 8616 10:50 AM 2:20 PM
 EZE VVI 5L 211 4:00 PM 5:45 PM
 VVI LPB 5L 211 7:00 PM 8:00 PM
or VVI LPB 5L 301 10:00 PM 11:00 PM

Arriving from Santa Cruz via Sao Paulo

 FOR GRU G3 1403 6:05 AM 9:50 AM
or FOR GRU JJ 3325 8:00 AM 11:30 AM
 GRU VVI 5L 301 4:00 PM 5:45 PM
 VVI LPB 5L 211 7:00 PM 8:00 PM
or VVI LPB 5L 301 10:00 PM 11:00 PM

And I know that you had flights presented but they are based on today's flight schedules and that is why our results do not match.  Also your list did not have the depth of acceptable departure times that I wanted in order to better understand the order team arrivals.  For example using this itinerary

 FOR GRU G3 1773 11:50 AM 3:30 PM
 GRU LIM TA 141 6:05 PM 9:00 PM
 LIM VVI TA 35 9:55 PM 1:30 AM  ar April 27th
 VVI LPB 5L 450 6:45 AM 7:45 AM  27-Apr

a team could recover after getting a very late departure from Fortaleza and still arrive at the Roadblock in time to perform with the leading teams.

Our La Paz source had the bikes, the headdresses, the bands, the U-turn, The Plaza Avaroa, and the Pitstop in Monticulo absolutely right! Kudos to her! :hearts:


But hey--Do we get points for creativity? :lol3:

Plaza Estudiante??

From an interview with Anthony and Stephanie over in the Racers thread where they are talking about Anita and Arthur in Sequesterville,

"Anthony: We couldn’t have asked for a more accepting, warm welcome. I think they were a little more welcoming than we were to the next couple that showed up."

Maybe a hint that the next elimination is a M/F team? :duno:
This will explain that quote ..

If it was a regular 12 hour Pit Stop then they would have started at 12:51 am on April 26th (Ken & Tina).  They said nothing about the flights  :duno:  Our best possible flight construction would have them reaching La Paz at 8:00 pm also on the 26th.  So, after sleeping with Simon Bolivar, they would have awakened on the morning of the 27th.

And they arrived in darkness at EL Alto airport La Paz, so the 8:00 pm is okay.  But we know that all the activities happened on April 28th from our spoiler witness.  One day unaccounted for.

I guess it has to have been an extended Pit Stop in Forteleza.  Lots of time to toss underwear about.  This was not where we expected one because we are sure there has to be one in La Paz.  And I don't remember there ever being extended Pit Stops back-to-back before.   :duno:

Gator, if you can find a decent route from Fortaleza to LaPaz in under 3 flight segments, then:

1. Take it and
2. Let me know.

You will spend a great deal of time, even more than I have and Chateau apparently has. If a good 2 flight segment route in a time of day logical for the teams were available, I would have found it. I didn't.

apskip,

I am pretty sure we are on the same page.  The flight graphic on last night's episode leads one to think it was a direct flight.  The TAR producers had enough good footage that they did not need to say that the flights went from city A, to B, to C, to La Paz.

That does not help you excellent flight detectives.  :plane:

hey, let me help narrow your search on the minaret. Kazakhstan is a Muslim country. Except for a very small amount, Msocow would not be littered with minarets. I don't recall seeing any there, but I did not get all over this city of 10 million people. I advise focus on Almaty.

EDITOR'S NOTE - I took my own advice. There are 3 mosques in Almaty, but none matches. I also applied it to Moscow, where there are no mosques. There are only 8 in all of Russia and none of those matches(except I don't know about the one with no picture).

patlini, that was true before 1947 when the partition of the primarily Hindu parts into India and the primarily Islamic parts into Pakistan happened. Since then there are not very many mosques in India.  I might have seen one or two in travelling between or in most of the major urban areas. Here is a list of what it purported to be all 16 mosques in India(a trivial number for a country of 1 billion population) including two mozques in Delhi(which don't match):

Jama Masjid  India Delhi 1656
Mecca Masjid  India Hyderabad 1694  
Moti Masjid  India Delhi 1660  
Sidi Saiyyed mosque  India Ahmedabad 1573  
Mubarak Mosque  India Qadian 1883  
Hazratbal Shrine  India Srinagar  
Jama Masjid  India Srinagar 1400  
Cheraman Juma Masjid  India Kodungallur 629  oldest mosque of India, second oldest Juma Masjid of the world.
Malik Dinar Mosque  India Kodungalloor    
Jama Masjid  India Kalbadevi (Mumbai) 1802  
Haji Ali Dargah  India Worli (Mumbai) 1631  
Babri Mosque  India Ayodhya 1528 – destroyed on December, 6th 1992
Sir Syed Masjid  India Aligarh    
Masjid-ul-Jamiah  India Tamilnadu  
Adina Mosque  India Firozabad (West Bengal) 1373  
Cheraman Juma Masjid  India Kerala 629

The minaret in the shot looks like it could have been built prior to 1947.  Barring the extreme case that minarets were torn down after 1947 I'd say searching India is a good idea at this point

I tried about every combination that I could think of ..some samples off the top of my head  :umn:
just "minaret"
minaret search every place they are going or have been, yes even South America!
mosque with square minaret
minaret on Church
minaret on castle
sphere mosque aka minaret
..ball topped  :lol:

I love this one in Egypt, just for the fun of it :funny:,  so maybe its trickery like the movie studio in Morocco  :funny: ?

Of course you can't see mountains that far away due to the curvature of the earth. It is physically impossible. According to an authoritative source, "Due to the curvature of the earth, the line of sight for devices not mounted on towers is limited to 16 miles (26km)." 105 miles is almost 7 times further.

Thanks, Slowhatch. one thing I learned from the National Geographic video you recommended is that thte cholitas fight on Sundays. That would be April 27 and Chateau cites the evidence of the date in the newspaper that AR13 teams visited the cholitas at el Alto Mulitfunctional Arena on April 28, which is Mopnday. That means that all fighters and maybe the crowd would have to have been paid to participate.

I suspect the crowd was recruited by TAR and signed waivers to appear on TV.  You may have noticed other people, especially at airports, with their faces digitally smudged to hide their identities. No signed waiver, no face on TV.

On the minaret, this is crazy huh? I'll laugh my ass off if its something we missed in Bolivia! But that turns up nothing, for me anyway so who knows.........

I tried about every combination that I could think of ..some samples off the top of my head  :umn:
just "minaret"
minaret search every place they are going or have been, yes even South America!
mosque with square minaret
minaret on Church
minaret on castle
sphere mosque aka minaret
..ball topped  :lol:

I love this one in Egypt, just for the fun of it :funny:,  so maybe its trickery like the movie studio in Morocco  :funny: ?

I love your Egyptian minaret, puddin.  Maybe it denotes a certain sect of Islam.  Just to confuse things, I found this picture described only as "One of Almaty's mosques".   :angel:

Too bad we can't see the top, but a few of the features are similar.  At least we know that some minarets in Almaty have roofs.   :lol:

WHY are we talking about this in Leg 3? ???

But I think that could be another view of the Almaty Nur-Daulet Mosque, Boingo--I think I saw it labelled somewhere.

Posted in speculation :lol:

This shot was taken 105 miles from Delhi:

soooo.. you're saying that you can see this mountain 135 miles away in Delhi...  :ascared

I'll defer to our resident expert, patlini... is this true?  Can you see mountains while in Delhi?

no mountains in delhi.... just mountains of good food  :funny:

 :lol:  ...sonofabitch...  (:;)   puddin, you had it right with your Egyptian minaret....  :ascared

 :jumpy:  found it! .... I believe it's the Egyptian Islamic Center (mosque) in Almaty. (that would explain the Egyptian architecture of the minaret).   :snicker:  ...sonofabitch!  :knuckles:  :groan: :res:

Oh well, another myster solved... what's next?  ;)

Boingo, it is logical that the mosque should be in Almaty and not in Auckland, Delhi, or Mosscow. However, I can't match up your information with any of the 4(up one from yesterday) mosques in Almaty. Here is the revised list:

Islamic Places in Almaty, Kazakhstan 
Masjids 
Masjid in Otegen Batyr, Almaty, Almaty Region
Phone: 8252-24944
 
Masjeed_Gornyi_Gigant, Almaty, Gornyi Gigant
Phone:

Masjid Tastak, Almaty
Phone: 3272-559609

Almaty City Central Masjid, Almaty
Phone: +7 3272-308002
 
My problem is that none of the 3 of them that have pictures match your photo. Which of the above is the EIC Mosque(none appears to be named that)?

 :jumpy:  :jam:  :yess: Nice job!
According to the map (http://expat.nursat.kz/?1530), the area behind Nur Mubarak/Nur Mosque (http://good-times.webshots.com/photo/2831548180101015314qTpTXC)/Egypt Cultural Centre is described as Al-Farabi Kazakh National University and "Botanic Garden (http://expat.nursat.kz/?532)." She looks a little sad in the confessional; maybe they're out, or maybe it was just a long day.

Brilliant Boingo!!  Wonderful!!  :jumpy: :hearts: :jumpy:

Places of religious worship are also being built in Almaty. Alongside a number of newly erected mosques and Orthodox churches, special mention should be made of the Egyptian Islamic Center and the Mubarak Islamic University - the Egyptian Government's gift to Almaty.

Is this it?

As regards the cultural cooperation between the two countries, Kazakhstan is the only country in central Asia where there is an Egyptian cultural center and university at the same time, in Almaty there exist the Egyptian Cultural Center and Noor Mubarak University for Islamic Studies, where Egypt funds the salaries of the professors staff through Ministry of Awquaf, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Al-Azhar Al-Sharif and Ministry of Higher Education). The university offers educational and training services for 850 students in a number of specifications: (Islamic Studies, Arabic and English languages, Arabic and translation, and religion).

Egypt offers to the Kazakhstani universities, including Noor Mubarak University, 22 Egyptian professors, and offers 6 scholarships for Egyptian students for the PhD.

The confessional is here about the 8:30 mark

Dallas: when I ask my mom to step it up, she does, shes able to push herself, there's times where she needs a break and uh, and I wouldn't expect her to go all out all the time
