This person has a longer history on twitter, so it passes the initial test.

Amazing Race is in Salta!! So cool!
7 minutes ago

Salta is in Northern Argentina in the foothills of the Andes and is Argentina's 8th largest city with about 475,000 people. This one intrigues me. According to her blog, Kristen is on a two month trip (so far) across South America.

Looks solid to me  :tup:

Cool town too!  This speaks well for EVE as the first destination airport.
Almost one week after the race started? I kind of find it hard to believe.

It started 4 days ago... And normally they're doing three or four legs in that continent.
But it may be their last leg tho in South America  :duno:

The last time they went to South America, information was hard to come by. I'm not too surprised. We did find a local newspaper article with a picture and perhaps that will happen again.

Is it just me, or Phil likes to wear the same top clothing? The pic below is from S16 at El Boliche Viejo :lol3:

I know we've got a sighting of teams on a plane to Buenos Aires, but I'm struggling to see the logic in it. If teams landed at Miami at half 6 in the morning, they'd likely be on a morning flight, which would get them in late in the evening. I'm sure teams aren't racing in the dark, so there's bound to be an HOO at that time of night. But surely they wouldn't do that on the first leg? It would render having separate flights meaningless.

Unless we really do have a THIRD flight somewhere.

Maybe they bring back...they always did HOO in 1st leg until S15.
And I think  this can explain timeline:
1st leg:NOV28
2nd leg:NOV30
Now in 3rd leg...

It could work, if upon arrival in Buenos Aires, they'd needed to get sign-up times for the 1st task in the morning.

HOO's, sleep outsides. all very common first leg tactics.

Since we are getting some evidence of a second leg in BA, I am now wondering about an outside BA leg as the first one...this would be a good time for a bus ride somewhere...

Recoleta is one of the most famous neighborhoods in Buenos Aires! a lot of backpackers visit there daily and there are many hostels in the region, then is not so unlikely to appear more photos soon

between the places for tasks or even for the pit stop, I can see the Recoleta Cemetery which is where is the tomb of Eva Perón

but in fact, all the neighborhood is a very known for the great culture

And the Salta information???... can we trust that or you think we can't confirm it?

After Argentina i think the possible destinations could be Brazil, maybe Peru, ... mmm Africa?, or maybe New Zeland if they are going to the west direction.

I like the idea of a visit to Salta. It looks like a place TAR would go to. Confirming Salta will be difficult, but I'll keep checking into it. The woman (who seems to be genuine) that tweeted about the Amazing Race being in Salta made a later tweet saying

Make one little tweet about Amazing Race and get all kinds of spam.

So, I expect she won't be willing to elaborate further.  :(

The one guy's picture from Paraguay was in the daylight and marked as seven hours ago. Brenchel checked in in the dark. Hard to tell their placement.

I was thinking about that and maybe they were filming some shots or images to show the city or maybe a task, or the place of the pit stop, not the race itself  :duno:

With the sighting in Salta last night and in the Buenos Aires airport this morning I think they could have made it to Paraguay by seven hours ago. But I think you are right about that picture.

How do we know they checked in in the dark?  In the pitstop photo we have, it looks like Brenchel in the bottom left hand side?

The picture from Foursquare mentions Danza Paraguay. I thought it might be a dance troupe, but it's a style of Paraguayan music also called Paraguayan Polka. I'm sure our Paraguayan members know more than I do, but here's a wikipedia link describing it.

They could have made this flight based on the time that guy saw them in the airport (he said his flight departed at 7.45)

(PZ) TAM 704
(EZE) Buenos Aires, BA, AR to (ASU) Asuncion, PY

DEPARTURE                               ARRIVAL

8:45 AM - Thu 01-Dec-2011    10:35 AM - Thu 01-Dec-2011

If it wasn't that, they waited a long while and got on this:

(G3) Gol Air Transport 7471
(EZE) Buenos Aires, BA, AR to (ASU) Asuncion, PY

DEPARTURE                                       ARRIVAL

2:35 PM - Thu 01-Dec-2011    4:25 PM - Thu 01-Dec-2011

Ok....in this shot it show the dancers getting ready for the racers. Their costumes correspond to the local dance called "Polca" but the dancing that they have to perform it's called "Bottle Dancing"

You can see the dancers all dressed up here:

and here's a example of the "Bottle Dancing" (Youtube)

I'm very impressed with the dance. I can't figure out how the bottles stay balanced on her head when she leans at times. That's not going to be easy for a beginner to do, so I foresee some trouble at this roadblock.
