November 2014 - 1. When I got to immigration on arrival, there was 10 desks and 1 guy working, who was sound asleep. 2. Look back after you pass the desk - you will see they are all playing solitaire. There is often 3 people crowded around 1 computer too, as obviously they have no idea how to work it. 3. Don't try the toilets, terrible, plus you will have to climb over a mountain of random luggage that has been sent (without passenger) from the middle east, all wrapped in rope. 4. There are so many mosquitos, my friend actually contracted malaria from all the bites she got there. 5. Absolutely no climate control. Fan yourself with your immigration card while you wait in the giant line (see points 1 and 2) You would never dream of sleeping here - it just wouldn't even cross your mind.
