Lines of Wisdom

I met this 103 year old woman during my vacation with my family in Cancun, Mexico last July 2012. She is not even 4 feet tall and she was selling handmade hankie. My 8-year old daughter asked me if we can buy one so we can help her for her everyday life expenses by buying her product. I had a little chat with her in Spanish and there I found out how old she was. Its truly amazing, with her age she can sing while selling, and still have a very good memory recollection of her experience in life. Those lines in her face is truly a symbol of "life wisdom".
