The monk brother continues: “And these people, do you know them? So you take pictures with people who know you, but you do not know them?” In fact, he had no idea who I was. He told me he had been here for 52 years without TV. And through this brother, I revised my resume. And he wondered why I was known, and why people were so interested in me. How did I get down to earth? Gad Elmaleh said.
