When on holidays in Sardinia two years ago, I met this incredible woman after I had already learnt that quite many people in Sardinia healthily grow to a 100+ years old.
In the streets I really saw many more elderly people than I would at home. What struck me even more is that they mostly walked around without any walking sticks or walking frames. They met no matter the heat, men sitting on a bench chatting excitedly with each other, neighbouring women talking to each other from one window to the other or in front of their houses. Couples coming down to the Piazza to meet others and see what’s going on.
They may also still be working eight hours a day at the age of 90!
