Man of Torda: mystery, which is still

July 1954, the day was hot. An unidentified man just arrived in Japan, in the Tokyo airport. On view - the average European, but guard the airport for some reason he is suspicious.

While checking passports it turns out that the man came out of the state, entitled "Tord". Passport looks authentic, except for the fact that the countries called Tord never existed - at least in this dimension.

The man asked to go to a special room for the additional inspection, and asked to show on the map where it is his country. He unhesitatingly points to the place where is the Principality of Andorra and can not grasp why this map is not available Tord his home country.

According to the man, she should be here, and already at least a thousand years!

Representatives of the Customs discover the strange gentleman money in several different European currencies. In his passport mark made in a variety of airports around the world, including earlier visits to Tokyo.

Bewildered, the officials decide to take a strange man in one of the local hotels and expose the front of the door guard room of two people - as long as they fail to solve this riddle.

The company, in which the man, he said, is working for many years, does not have any idea about it, although a man proves his affiliation to it documented.

The staff, which, he said, must be booked in his name, also did not hear about it.

The Tokyo-based company, which was headed stranger "for their company", also shook his head.

On top of the puzzle, the number of the hotel where a strange man was under guard, mysteriously appeared empty. The man disappeared.

He just could not escape through the window - his number was high enough above the ground, and there was no balcony.

Nobody ever saw this man. The mystery remained unsolved.
