Peach already said there is no Fast Forward.
Could you share a picture of the other person?

There is NO FF.

I believe the person you are referring to is this one (from the caps), who seems to be the demonstrator of how to make a poo pie.

Yes, this is most likely a demonstrator because in the previous caps, Kisha and Jen can be seen watching this person.

Do you think this man is significant? Could he be a cluegiver or promo filler?

There is a pretty extensive discussion of the holy men on the preceding two pages....

I'm sure these two images are from the same place as this image:



From this site:  http://www.heybrian.com/travels/india/varanasi.php

It says Priya Hair Dresser backwards just like the other image and the letters in the other sign also match up... or in a mirror image wise.  I didn't spend time trying to identify that temple, but it should be easier than finding  a hair dresser shop. (I can try reading the other signs, but them being mirror imaged is a little hard. The store next door is something Gents Parlor)

It's a Shiva temple as there's a Nandi (the bull) outside.  I am sure it's just a stock scene, but no harm in pointing it out.

I found the location on Google Maps, but I'm not sure how to post it?

It's Guru Brihaspati Mandir, Varanasi

I believe I found a match to this shrine - it's described as a durga shrine (however no closer to finding where in varanasi it is located!!  :umn: ):

I am wondering if this could be replica of some sort located on a varanasi street - if you look at the red pole to the right , you can make out          S T O R E  from top to bottom....

Raina!! That is an awesome find!! Does this help in any way? I flipped it...




And which is the Priya Store? ???

For the Google map...at the top right hand corner of the map there should be a LINK button..try copy pasting that here between
Code: [Select]
[html] [/html] and see if that works.

I am glad to know we get to see more of Varanasi than poo...but I am thinking that finding one holy man on one street is pretty miraculous!

I tried embedding it, but it didn't work, but I see that you guys got it.  It feels silly now that I know where it is, because there are so many images of that intersection and that temple. 

In the "Durga Shrine" image it says "tores" in Hindi on the other side of the pillar.  The "sa" is cut off.  I wish I could read the top of it!  (It of course says "stores" in English, so this information is useless.)

In the image that I linked, there's a big banner sign pointing toward Shri Jaipur Murti Bhandar... a place that sells murtis.  But that to me looks like an actual shrine.  There are small ones like that in a lot of places everywhere.  Sometimes people get them made just so they can preserve their building from road expansions or what not since religious places cannot be overtaken by an Indian type of eminent domain.

caper that is a wonderful find! :hearts:

I don't know whether it is a replica or not...I need glasses today because so far I am not seeing a bull or the store letters though.

Here is the shrine, all rights to Bull Lore.

If that helps!  You can even see the Gents Parlor sign in English this photo.  Seems like a busy road.
