Sleeping on the Job

Northern Cyprus:

If you are wondering where is the worst security measures at an airport, then you will be hard pressed to find one to challenge Ercan Airport in the Turkish Northern Cyprus.

We once travelled to Istanbul via Ercan Airport and having cleared passport control, we proceeded towards luggage inspection and saw some people who were circumventing the whole process and walking round the X-Ray set up.  Being conscientious, we insisted on pushing our hand luggage through the X-Ray machine and walked through the human detector.  On the other side, there was a solitary security officer sat behind the screen that revealed the contents of the luggage.  Upon close inspection, we realised the security officer was fast asleep, quite literally!
