Just let me know if I should check another train connection for you. I
told you about Milan because I looked at that example previously when
talking to some ambassador from there (sorry, can't remember who...might
have been Gianluca) who complained that flying to Amsterdam would be
cheaper than flying to Basel - and I found out that the train for Basel is
as "cheap" as the flight to Amsterdem.
