Ifugao tribe elderly in traditional costume at Banaue rice terraces
An elderly man wearing traditional Ifugao tribe costume met by the Banaue rice terraces in Philippines. He had a great, vibrant personality and said that the secret to his longevity is smiling. The man, like many others in the region, spent all his life working at the rice terraces until his body could no longer bare the physical load.
