a policeman walked up to us, and positioned himself about one metre away from us, watching us. After about 5 minutes, i asked him whether everything was okay. He told me that of course everything was okay, but his job is to protect the people here at this airport - Papa Whiskey

"There's a private lounge for 30 (or 25,50) they will accept both currencies. With sofas and drinks, tea and some nuts (all included in the price) it was an acceptable night. With a TV present, but not disturbing, at a low volume. We were alone in the lounge and had sofas to sleep on, got some blankets from the waitress and were able to sleep decently. The light was low and comfortable, but all the noise from the Terminal came in, since there were only walls and only a grid ceiling. Open connection to the Terminal and all its noise. It was accetable, though, perfectly possible to sleep. In the morning we had been left alone by the waitress, which was a bit weird. Inside the lounge we didn't feel the need for taking turns while sleeping (for security reasons). We left our bags between a wall and one of the sofas we were sleeping on, in a corner. Wifi was present, but neither my iphone nor the ipad were able to join the network."
