Man Enjoys Permanent Residence in Mexico City Airport

imageFor no discernable cause, a Japanese man, Hiroshi Nohara, has decided to spend over three months (and counting) living at the Mexico City airport. He subsists off of fast-food donations and is becoming something of a local celebrity, with near daily news reports on his well-being broadcast from the airports’ food courts. He flew into the airport on September 2, ostensibly on a layover; instead of using his already-purchased ticket home to Tokyo, he stayed. He says he has no real reason for hanging out in the airport, but he seems to be enjoying himself and the notoriety he’s gained. Perplexed airport officials say that although he smells awful, they can’t make him leave until his visa expires in March 2009.
