security asked me to leave, but I stayed. About noon the security was back and asked me to leave, ready to hand me over to the police. - Olvar
"I arrived in early afternoon. I had a train to Cassablanca in two days, so I planned to try to sleep at this airport, sitting down in the lobby. People asking me where I am going, was I poor etc. security asked me to leave, but I stayed. One in kiosk offered m food and something to drink, juice. At night, some cleaners offered me a madras to sleep on. So I did, and slept well right inside the doors... About noon the security was back and asked me to leave, ready to hand me over to the police... I hurry went outside to an expensive taxi. Only transport to Rabat- Sale is expensive black taxi, or special hotel coaches. But no regular airport transport."
