I’ve returned from my expedition. I’m confident that our new friends are safe with Sy.
We had a clear shot all the way to the bridge, helped along by their knowledge of a drainage channel that we accessed before the mouth of the passage. Though the water within was high, it kept us out of sight, letting out on the river walk that is below the street level. From that point, a short walk brought us beneath the towering bridge. I watched from this side while they navigated the catwalks and girders in the underside of the structure.
They waved before plunging into the drainage channel on the other side.
Tomorrow we will head into the city, dressed in sackcloth.
