Three spiritual figuresThe day before yesterday the manager of the Bali Beach Hotel said that he had seen three holy men in his lifetime.
He saw the Dalai Lama from a distance when he came to Indonesia. He also saw the Pope from a distance.
Then he said that I was the third spiritual figure he had seen. Only with me he could talk and take pictures!
