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 Olga is 83 years old now and have been a widow for 40 years. By herself she managed her little shop, while raising her children. She is still managing her shop today, and whenever you are in Samaipata pass by on her cornerstore to get some nescafé or soda. She will be there.
