Aguilera, Claudio

"The sky is still dark when a young boy leaves home for school. He has a long path ahead: nine kilometers--over five-and-a-half miles--through the mountains and rain forests of Chile. But the boy doesn't mind. While he walks, he can count butterflies and lizards, and he can think about where the 15,000 steps he takes every morning could lead. Nine kilometers could bring the boy across ninety soccer fields, up the world's ten largest buildings, or into a classroom at last..."
