The Spanish edition of my “Falling Uphill” kids book “Cayendo Hacia Arriba” is being used by the Peace Corp in Paraguay to teach kids how to read and dream.
Scott was honored to be the Cultural Ambassador to Argentina by the US Department of State. He toured the schools to teach kids to dream by using his trip around the world on a bicycle as an example. And together they created the Spanish edition of “Falling Uphill: The Secret of Life” with all-new illustrations. 2000 copies were given away.
Students from Argentina holding their certificates of achievements and their copy of “Cayendo Hacia Arriba” the book that we created together. In my opinion, the celebration of the book is the most important step. It helps the students realize their purpose in life, take a step of action with their passion.

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.

Ambassador Vilma Martinez visited a school at “Fuerte Apache” to share an activity with the students and encourage personal and professional development among children who live in vulnerable conditions.
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.
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 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.

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.
