(Contributed by Gary Taylor) - "me and the wife was returning home to Manchester England via Johannesburg...Istanbul...starting from Maputo Airport, I understand Maputo is a poor part of Africa, I dont have a problem with that, and im a guy we dont really we?..anyway I needed the bathroom..but couldnt find it?? so I asked this African guy who worked there.."excuse me..but wheres the toilet?"..he looked at me like I was an Alien..."the john?"..I said...still no answer...the "restroom"..."I need a pee"...still nothing from this guy! I improvised, I got my index finger and placed it between my legs and waggled it about! I guessed this guy is either gonna get me arrested for trying to pick him up! or hes gonna realise I need a pee? I looked at the guy and his features changed dramaticly into a huge grin!..was HE a faggot I thought?..he started to laugh out loud..ALLELUJAH..I thought he understands me, or was I using my little finger for directions? I thought? but NO he pointed me into the right direction,...phew! that could have been very dangerous for me I was thinking as I ran to relieve myself, after that escapade I think I could fly from ANY Airport in the problem! just as long as I know where the toilets are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

From an african country you cannot expect better.The personnell is friendly though sleeping in the building might not be allowed - no experience with that...The guys with their guns dissapeared by now - the total situation of the country has changed drastically over the last 8 years!"

(Contributed by ?) - "As you would expect, this airport has no place to sleep at all. It is a small, old un-airconditioned building with many guards with large guns who keep the area free of loiterers. Crime is also reputedly to be high, so sleeping in this particular airport is certainly not recommended."
