She is 128 years old!
Koku Istambulova, a resident of Chechnya (128 years old). At least that's what it says in her passport. And even if we assume that, due to some confusion with documents, her real age is 10 years smaller, it still becomes uneasy - is it possible to live that long? Yes, and staying in the mind?
However, reality shows that yes, it is possible. Even despite the absence of any medical care and benefits of civilization. It turns out that almost half of her long life Koku spent in that period of life, which is called old age.
I know that many of my readers imagine old age as something implausible. Something like schoolchildren imagine adulthood: I will eat as much as I want sweets and not go to school!
Some men, for example, seriously believe that if they manage to live to 80 years, then the most severe competition among women will develop. Guys something less remains! Then my classmate Lyuska or colleague Masha is running after me. Then she will cry ... So they live, anticipating retirement.
Others declare that by old age they will accumulate substantial capital (or will receive it by inheritance) and will lower money in the company of young grammar-girls. Every day is new! The fact that not everyone in such a respectable age will be able to even see the high-school girls, they forget.
Still others believe that they will certainly meet old age somewhere in the mountains, either by running or on a surfboard. They see themselves, of course, gray and wrinkled, but still mighty and full of strength. And then they are offended that young people are not giving up their place in the minibus.
Women see themselves in old age with a bunch of plastic surgeries that have made them real beauties, in the manner of Christie Brinkley. In expensive clothes and high heels. Running around the boutiques with a flock of the same girlfriends. In fact, old age is often completely different, and you don’t feel like wearing heels at all.
