How is it to be senior in their respective times? How did they become what they are? What is their level of income, their habits in terms of consumption, their relations with family, to work, what are their activities? How is their health as they get older, what is their life expectancy?

  • Their adulthood: work, hobbies, family life, husband, holidays, personality;
