  1. Great to see the dates and titles of the next episodes published. I will look forward to them, as I always do, on every second Monday- Australian time.

    Enjoyed this one of the robbery via the sewers. Great descriptions. Eeewww.

    Passing through Nice in May, so I will have to see if the bank is still standing.
