Doña Trinidad

She came in, asked what we were doing and wanted to leave again. Ushered in by the daughter of Dona Olga, another elderly from Samaipata, she had no intention to stay for a photo. After asking her again and again she decided to sit down and let Martijn take a portrait of her, and even seemed to enjoy it. Dona Trinidad is one of the Indian women who live at the campo (rural area) of samaipata. She told us she was 98, others said they thought she was about 75 years.
