Gente Vieja a Casa

Hard as it may be to visualize, some day she'll be old and gray...and with plenty of company:
MADRID – In 35 years Spain will have the oldest population in the world, according to a United Nations report published on Thursday.
The number of people over the age of 60 will be 32 percent of the world population in 2050 – a larger proportion than the number of children.
“There is a dramatic change happening which is going to affect the development of the world,” said Somnath Chatterji, coordinator of the global study on ageing and adult health, carried out by the World Health Organisation.
