And on the extreme opposite of the vacation spectrum sits a Japanese tourist in Mexico City who has become a media sensation for staying at the airport for the last three months. “I don’t understand why I’m here,” Hiroshi Nohara told a Mexican reporter. “I don’t have a reason.” So far he has survived on donations of food given to him by well-wishers along with a steady supply of snacks and drinks from businesses who want the free publicity dealt out by the daily television news reports on the man’s life in the airport. “He’s a calm person, a nice man,” said an airport janitor. “He just sits here and eats all day. ”Mexican officials plan to simply wait until March when the man’s visa expires, as they can’t force him to leave until that date.
