Vesselin Vesselinov

Jorge Luis Borges was born in Buenos Aires on August 24, 1899. He has been awarded the International Literary Prize and the Jerusalem Prize and is also an honorary member of the National Institute of Arts and Letters. He has been curator of three fine arts museums1

The museums forbid the disclosure of their names. The objection is based on the fact that the number of visitors has increased after Borges' death. The increase, however, has nothing to do with the museums' expositions. The new visitors have uniformly asked to see the room where the former curator had been working, thus disturbing the normality of the business day. Curious phenomena has been noticed: all new visitors are short , balding, middle aged men of the silent type, with blond mustaches. The museums' staff is under the impression that the new visitors are actually one man. What cannot be explained is how it is possible for one man to visit the three museums at the same time, given that they are located in different countries: Argentina, France, and the USA. Also, crowds with blond mustaches have been observed sometimes visiting the museums, thus deepening the mystery: Is it possible for one man to create a crowd? Until the mystery is solved, the museums' names cannot be published.
