    The airport man




    Yesterday Ahmed left his home for the first time in eleven years. But his home is a very unusual one- he has (1) spent the last eleven years living in an international airport. Ahmed had no family in his own country, so eleven years ago he set off to search (2) for his sister who lived in Scotland. He hadn’t heard from her for (3) long , but he had an old address. He never (4) traveled Scotland, however, because while he was (5) waiting for connecting flight, all his documents (6) had stolen and he had to ask for new ones.(7) if he has nowhere to go, he stayed in the airport. After a (8) few weeks, he was still here. He became (9) called As ‘sir George’ and all the airport staff liked him. Eleven years (10) later his documents arrived and he was free to go . But he no longer wanted to!
