This cap is taken this from one of the earlier promos in the season. Thanks to Alen, I've been able to track this down as Tigre Hotel just outside of Buenos Aires

Comparing this with the image on the FB page, looks like this is the Pitstop?

The teams were told to find the most dramatic bookstore in Buenos Aires :)

El Ateneo Grand

This cap is from Sally & Tyson looking for the bookstore.



The intersection of Santa Fé Ave. and Callao Ave.:

Haven't seen the episode yet, but I wonder if they have used again La Martina - the PS of TAR7 leg in Bs. As. - for the RB.

The location of the Roadblock is the "Estancia Las Betulas", in the outskirts of city of Luján, at 44 miles distance from Buenos Aires. You can see in this picture the same building that appears next to the horse with the clue when Grant is describing what teams have to do:

The location of the Detour "Tango" is in the "Pasaje de la Defensa", in the neighborhood of San Telmo.

And, of course, the song that the band is playing is "La Cumparsita", from composer Gerardo Matos Rodriguez.

And this cap is from the RB.

Does anybody recognize the carriage in the corner of #64?

Comparing this with the image on the FB page, looks like this is the Pitstop?



Same PS and same way of reaching it than TARLA3 Buenos Aires leg.

Only difference is that TARLA3 was next to the deck and TARAUS3 is on the terrace.
