123-year-old Carmelo Flores Laura is not only the world’s oldest man, but also the oldest living person to ever be documented according to Bolivian public records. Laura inhabits a straw-roofed dirt-floor hut in an isolated hamlet near Lake Titicaca at 13,100 feet and is impressively able to walk without the assistance of a cane or glasses. Laura credits his longevity to ample walking and only eating barley, no noodles or rice. The native Aymara has outlived most of his children with his remaining child aged 67. Having never been farther than 50 miles from his birthplace, Laura leads an austere lifestyle without the use of electricity.
