This woman is 103, but that didn’t stop her from offering me coquito (Puertorrican eggnog) and tostones (fried plantain)…well more like forced me to because she didn’t want to drink and eat them alone. She has very poor vision, which is no surprise for her age but that didn’t stop her from demanding that she looks beautiful in her pictures.
This is the face of a woman who can recall very specific moments in her life with excruciating detail.
We can only hope that at 103 we are still capable of frying our own tostones.
BTW, this is my great grandmother and if i’m lucky, I have inherited some of those long lasting genes.
