The Librarian

A chance encounter at the small branch library where Jorge Luis Borges worked. (Map this!)

Purely by chance we met a man who holds the same position that Borges did at the Miguel Cané. Or was is pure chance? Is there such a thing in the universe, or is everything pure chance? Either way it was a very, very interesting experience, especially in hindsight, when we have had time to reflect upon it.

Ricardo del Ponte is a loveable, if eccentric gentleman. If we ever return to Buenos Aires in the future, it would be interesting to see how he developed his interest in Wagner and Medieval literature. On this trip we have had to be ready for that special moment – it comes when you least expect it and are the least prepared.
