This website is a living document of our worldwide research into the lives of elderly. In October 2017 there was an International Festival on Elderly in The Netherlands, accompanied by the publication of our book and documentary. Currently we are promoting our Istitute Aetatis.
Doña Simona is 77 years old and we met her walking quickly through the streets of Samaipata. She was on her way home to help her youngest daughter and granddaughter to make hamburgers to sell at the football stadium.
