yonation, here's a hint: the sentence about the storm contains nearly all of the info you need to figure out the combination.

Great sense of style. It's way too short though. I've got a hunch the the dude in the train's this Cheiro guy you're looking for.

is that sarcasm, that it's difficult? i liked this a lot, but the only thing there was to figure out was the safe, and he even tells you straight out that it's in the telegram. cake.
