living in the airport

An amazing story that sounds awful to me.

Mehran Karimi Nasseri is an Iranian refugee who lived in the departure lounge of Terminal One in Charles de Gaulle Airport from 8 August 1988 until July 2006, when he was hospitalized for an unspecified ailment.

During his 17-year long stay at the airport, Nasseri had his luggage at his side, and spent his time reading, writing in his diary, or studying economics.  He received food and newspapers from employees of the airport.  Contrary to what many believe, he has never been stuck in the transit area and was therefore free to move.
