Helloooo Race fans! Last week our teams traveled to Chile, and this week continue to travel the Chilean countryside, and it is truly a beautiful place to be - even if today's race is a little overcast and rainy.
We start off where left our racers last week, at Valparaiso, Chile, with Jeff and Jordan (Team JJ) in the lead. Teams are allowed to begin this leg of the race exactly 12 hours after they finished the last leg. Team JJ finished at 3:21 pm, so they begin at 3:21 am. and travel back to Santiago, Chile where they then board another bus for a 500+ mile trip to Puerto Varas. Sounds simple enough, right? WRONG!
Team JJ gets to the bus station first, but it is not open yet and we get some amusing footage of Jeff trying to communicate with the Spanish speaking locals using what I can only describe as Spanish sign language, to find out when the bus station opens.. It opens at 5:00 am and the other teams begin to arrive as well. This is what we call and equalizer, when all team positions are re-set by being at the same place at the same time.
