Could you kindly help me with this sentence?
Despite outward appearances, He lives a life of total self-sufficiency and order. It's not possible to say that despite being an untidy guy...., because later he is described as a well groomed person. Does it refer to the situation or atmosphere around? I forgot to add that this person has got stuck in an airport for about 16 years. Does it refer to the bustling of people at the airport?
Thanks a bunch
