They drink wine. Walk everywhere. Take naps. But there's more to being alive – really alive – past 100 on Ikaria.

“i wan

a wife,”
 
vasilis giakas πells me πhrough πhe πrans-
lator. ∏hen, as if to advertise the goods, he whips off his sweater, grabs
a machete and starts whacking at tree branches to feed to his goats. Are
 you married?” When I nod yes, he shakes his head as if I’ve been wast-
ing his time. “When you return here,” he demands, “bring me a single
 woman. She must be tall, at least 150 centimeters [4-foot-11] and havedry-grass-colored hair, like you. I am strong like ∏arzan, but it is lonely 
out here in these woods.” I think I was just hit on by a 102-year-old man.
