Sup Travellers?! On August 31st 2014 Leandra Becerra Lumbreras from Mexico celebrated her 127th birthday making her the oldest woman documented to have ever lived. 

The keys to her long life are reportedly "sleeping for days on end," never getting married, fighting and get this ---CHOCOLATE!!!. 

Metro reports Lumbreras's granddaughter Miriam Alvear told Mexico's El Horizonte, "She was always a woman who fought. She was still sewing and weaving until about two years ago." 

Lumbreras also reportedly fought in the Mexican Revolution as leader of the all-female group the Adelitas.

The tragedy of Ms Lumbreras long life is that she has already buried five children and several of her 20 grandchildren, the last of whom died in 2013 – aged 90.

She also has 73 great-grandchildren and 55 great-great-grandchildren.

Congrats to Lumbreras on making 127 years. I wish her many more birthdays. Maybe she can get to 200 years. You knew know, anything is possible. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
