Old man from Bolivia - level 2
A man from Bolivia claims that he is 123 years old. If that's true, he is the oldest living man in the world.
But it won't be easy to prove that he's the oldest man in the world. He does have a baptism certificate, which says that he was born in 1890, but it is not an official document.
He has spent most of his life in a small village. It is located 4000 metres above sea level and it lies close to Lake Titicaca.
The old man's lifestyle is traditional and he keeps himself healthy by taking walks around the village.
Difficult words: claim (say), baptism (when they put water on baby's head) lifestyle (way of life).
