Subject: Re: Eurail queries
Hello Alan,

It should be fine for someone else to buy a Eurail Pass for you and send it to you; in fact, you could order it online and have it addressed to you care of your friend. Also, although only non- European residents can buy the pass, it is possible to buy it in Europe. That is addressed in the FAQ at http://www.eurail.com it's sold at Eurail Aid offices at a 15% higher rate.
