Nancy's brother Robert? No a young soldier.
We both said, "He looks like a young Robert,"
It is BIG
The Milan train station is big ... it is still a wind tunnel as, like Zurich, there are no doors to close out the cold air, but it is big. In the main terminal there are at least three or four floors. Most house shops and restaurants. In fact, one of the restaurants and a book store were the two places where we retreated to find warmth. Also, a note for future travelers, the rest room (WC) in the restaurant is FREE whereas the ones in public areas cost and to my mind are expensive.
While eating a snack in the restaurant a young Italian soldier came in and took a seat. Because of his uniform I believe he may be a student in one of their military schools. I looked at him and said, "He looks like a young Robert." Robert is Nancy's brother's name. She looked at him and agreed. She zoomed in on him with her camera and took the photo.
We had about a three to four hour layover in Milan both going to and coming from Spain. To keep warm we had to keep on all
our winter gear - long underwear, sweaters, down coats with collars turned up, earmuffs, head bands and hoods both over our ears and head and gloves. We were surprised to be so frozen inside the two train stations!
