Sharing my story in Argentina

As the Honorary Cultural Ambassador to Argentina, here I am sharing my story with an elementary school in Corrientes, Argentina, the same place I got stuck in the mud for 5 days.

Certificate of Recognition

I’m very excited. This Thursday the Ambassador to Argentina will be visiting some elementary schools in Buenos Aires to read the new Spanish edition of my children’s book. The kids will be receiving their own copy of the book and the certificate of recognition pictured above.

The making of the book

Here is my new book on the floor of the print shop waiting to be bound. It’s the Spanish edition of the kid’s book, “Falling Uphill: The Secret of Life.” I needed to hover over the guys at the print shop because it just wasn’t getting done on schedule. Aah! And the books need to be on an airplane to Argentina the next day!

My most popular story in the Americas

My most popular article about my bicycle ride around the world. It appeared in almost every country from Argentina all the way up to Canada. Quite probably millions of people saw this story.

Cultural Ambassador

While traveling during a time of war, I always thought of myself as the bicycling ambassador, and now I’ve been honored by the United States Department of State to be the Cultural Ambassador to Argentina for the 2011-2012 school year.

School book signing

The ice cream social and book signing celebration for “Ruby the Red Worm” drew over a 1000 people. It was one of the most overwhelming, amazing and fulfilling moments of my life to see the dreams of so many students coming to life.

An elephant-sized lesson in recycling

This is a great, life-sized example of just how much stuff we consume. Now multiple this by every school in the country. Wow! That would be about 137,000 plastic elephants.
