Concerning the hay bales........there are only 7 teams left. If they each had to carry two bales to the milking station....there are plenty of bales in that tent. Production would only need to have 14 hay bales there if all teams did that side of the detour.

Just a reminder on flights........we know teams were in the airport in Kolkata the afternoon of Dec 2, procurring tickets and teams were all at Kingfisher Airlines. Connections from Kolkata to Varanasi are as follows:

Flight from Kolkata to Delhi......evening of Dec 2.
Kingfisher flgiht at 2055 arriving in Delhi at 2348.

Connecting flights from Delhi to Varanasi.........arriving in the morning of Dec 3.
IT231     0930-1045
9W723   1030-1145 (there is also another flight at this time on Indian Airlines)
SG114    1420-1605

This information might help in analysing the shadows in the screencaps.

I don't know if we're still looking for the location of this cap or not:

 

But I think I have it.

Looking at this image http://www.flickr.com/photos/31439843@N05/2965979468/sizes/l/in/photostream/
and then this image http://www.flickr.com/photos/31439843@N05/2965089331/sizes/l/in/photostream/
and this one:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/la_imagen/2317368372/sizes/o/in/photostream/
and then this image in Panaroma which gives the approximate location:  http://www.panoramio.com/photo/48696286

Would place the shrine approximately right here:



(Sorry if I did that wrong!)

Very sorry to hear about all the bad storms. Hope everyone stays safe and gets their power back.

Wow, I didn't notice that before, gator!
It looks like sumo wrestlers to me.

They are Kushti wrestlers - refer back to slowhatch's info at top of page 9!  :tup:  (you can see the wrestlers in almost all of the ring pics - except the pic of K/V - However I think the wrestlers are actually behind them, out of view of the camera)

Seems like they are keeping Gary and Mallory kind of low profile in the previews so do we really have any type of status on them for this leg?

 :waves: Nice find on Tulsi Ghat, caper! Was there an address for it? My guess for the small arena--and it's only a guess--would be in the open area behind the mandir.

It seems like they almost always keep them kind of low profile in the previews :P. Hard to get much from it though.

The akhara seems to be geotagged here:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/sekitar/4678817833/
and http://www.flickriver.com/photos/sekitar/4649021533/ (one's google maps)

We saw Gary and Mallory doing the gobar task (chaan in my language) and Mal's sitting while waiting for her father to complete the roadblock?  There was also Mallory's reaction while crossing the river.  They're also the only people we saw a post leg interview from.   Is there any way to identify the pit stop location from that interview?

The photo on the left is from a pano (maximize, then look to the left). The photog has tagged it as being across the river from Dasaswamedh ghat, so maybe the hay shack is a little south of that spot.

My speculation:

In detour  A teams  must make 25 traditional fuel patties out of buffalo manure, then slap them on the wall to dry in the sun..... :



Gary and Mallory and Kisha and Jen make  out  "patties"  or meatballs.....  

one team makes a costly blunder  :

These aren't patties.......these are too  flat...
