The Sulekha listing probably refers to A.B. Nair Road, but they got the telephone number right, so I'll go with Juhu Church road, which puts his shop at the intersection mini-mall.

Well, here's my stab at Mumbai. I tried Yahoo but couldn't get it to work; let me know if I left anything out.

Looks like the delivery addresses consist of three buildings centred on the same courtyard: Prem Bhavan, Satya Bhavan and Colaba Court on Jamshad Baug. The problem is: where is Jamshad Baug? :duno:
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

If someone can get those delivery places exactly located in GE I will be able to make a time estimate for Kynt and Jenn at the Roadblock.

The two address slips are below. Apparently the two buildings are part of a (Parsi) development called Jamshed Baug. This building address and this Wikimapia entry puts it across from 4th Pasta lane (lat long here). My map  has been updated accordingly.

Just wanted to add this fwiw , good job Slowhatch~

Reality TV World:  Then it looked like your taxi driver got lost on the way to the tailor shop from the newspaper stand.  Is that what happened there?

Kynt:  He took us to the completely wrong place.  The clue said, "Go to Saint Andrews Street," or something.  He took us to Saint Andrews Road, which is a completely different place...
Vyxsin:  He took us to an actual church called Saint Andrews I think or something like that.  It was some kind of crazy.

Did the racers drop their bags at a nice place for a change? The pitstop conf. matches the furnishings at the Marriott just a few blocks away from the tailor shop (the source photo, labeled "Juhu Hotel," should not be confused with the 2-star Juhu Hotel a few doors down).

Ohhh--very good stuff, Slowhatch! Bet that took some looking!

Darn--Since they rent out Dariya for events, I kinda hoped they went back there!
