Miriam of Kalalayi

This is Aaron's aunt Miriam. She is 79 years old and takes care of herself completely. She never had children so she is on her own. She makes her own food, collects her own firewood and is 100% self sufficient. It is sad to see but it is part of their culture. At least Aaron allows her to live on his compound as she is safe there.
