In the Kurdish village of Anda in southeastern Turkey is Haji Musa.
He says he is 130 years old and remembers everything he has done — even seeing Turkey's founder Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.
"I saw him twice...” he tells Rudaw's Mehdi Mutlu. “He came to Kadikoy three times and met with the soldiers."
Musa served four years as a conscript in the Turkish Army.
"I served in Kadikoy and Istanbul," explains Haji Musa.
Even the famine of the late 1920s and 30s, Musa recalls.
"Yes, there was nothing to eat at all, only flour," he told Rudaw's Mehdi Mutlu." No, there was hunger and famine. There was nothing. People left their homes. They migrated."
Haji thanks God for prolonging his life and "I never worried myself."
His wife Aunti, 110, explains how they came to be married.
"He was a handsome guy and all knew that," she boasts. "It's just fate and destiny."
She was asked if she would permit Haji Musa to remarry if she were to die.
"No, I won't," she replies, explaining that they we will die on the same day: "one of us in the morning and one in the evening."
