Thanks YY :)
Yes I do run the fan site, I joined up here because i wanted to share the sighting/tweet i found because the people here have been such great sources of info for all us JEJO fans desperate to know their progress in the race.

 :bigwelcome

Just be aware that there is another race in BA. Probably one called Peking Express.....or could be completely different deal.

Hey people!  :wohoo:

I'm new here, but not new to AR.
It seems to me you need someone to translate from Spanish and Portuguese.
I'm Colombian, I speak Spanish and Portuguese and a little bit of French. I live in the US, I've been reading some of your posts and, wow, you guys are amazing! great detectives!!!!

I was just reading some of the posts, and it seems that the guy talking about "The Alps" was actually referring to "The Andes", going from Chile to Argentina you HAVE TO cross the Andes. It makes sense to me.

The other thing, the AR latin America version is just about to end and one of the final couples is form Argentina so, many of those Spanish-Portuguese tweets are just cheering them and the other 2. So, I wouldn't worry to much about it.

I hope this is helpful, I'll be around!!!

:casey

The Amazing Race leaves Chile and goes to Bariloche, Argentina
http://bit.ly/50jTdu

Sorry if this already came up, and If this is not the right place to talk about this, please feel free to post it elsewhere.

But reading the above article, it states that the grandmother and grandaugher where eliminated after the tasks in Puerto Varas. Hopes this helps. If you need any other help with translations Spanish - english, I will gladly help.

I think this is what the above tweeter was talking about. Wether she is right or not I dunno.

The Mall Shopping Centre, Brunei Darussalam

Is this TARA? Doubt TAR 16 could hop from Bariloche to Brunei that quickly.

Would the race travel from South America's eastern side to southeast Asia? That seems like a really long trip and flights go through Sydney and the Phillipines, where I would think they would compete before continuing.

How about Centre Point in London?
Centre Point is a substantial concrete and glass office building in central London, England, occupying 101-103 New Oxford Street, WC1, close to St Giles' Circus and almost directly above Tottenham Court Road tube station. The site was once occupied by a gallows.[
St Giles's Circus is the intersection of Oxford Street, New Oxford Street, Charing Cross Road and Tottenham Court Road in the West End of London. The word Circus is arguably a little misleading as the buildings around the traffic intersection are not all rounded, as with for example Oxford Circus. The area is historically known as St Giles's, but can now be seen as the point where the corners of Soho, Covent Garden, Bloomsbury and Fitzrovia meet.

Now that sounds like something producers would have racers attempt to navigate.

My 2 cents is shes shopping at the mall and describes her shopping as the Amazing Race, she is Christmas shopping so?

Took a look at the twitter profile. She may be seeing TAR on the TV.
Yeah, she's not much in a hurry to talk about the team sightings. I doubt filming's happening there.

it's someone anxious about watching TARLA, the first part of the final leg is about to begin
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move
