Waiting in the Airport
We flew to Zurich and met our travel companions Patty and Steve there.  They were coming from NYC.  Bill and I arrive a couple of hours earlier than they did and hung around in the airport.  Bill snoozed in a chair but I wandered about and got some cash out of a machine so we would a little local currency.  It turned out we didn't need it.

Once our friends arrived we made our way to the train.  We got settled on a train to Milan over/through the alps.  It was a bit rainy.  We all snoozed a bit.  except me.  I took some disapointing pictures.

We arrived in Milan at rush hour in a cold rain.  We had to go to Milan to get the key to our appartment.  We found a place to check our luggage for a few hours and tried to get a cab to get the key.....  Not only was it hard to get a cab because there were so many people getting cabs.  the cabs were tiny and we are 4 largish americans. 

Finally we settled on Patty and Steve going a cross the street to a cafe and waiting while Bill and I took a cab to get the key.  While in transit Bill tried to figure out how to tell the cab to wait for us.  But as it turned out that wasn't necessary since I went in and he stayed in the car.  it was pretty clear.  So we got the keys and made our way back to the trainstation.
