Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

Just a few days before San Isidro starts, all the people from Madrid are euphoric and they are not in the mood for much work. No matter how much they explain how they celebrate this day, you should go discover it in person. On this pilgrimage, donuts and lemonade will be distributed so that attendees calm their hunger and thirst. Also, they will play live music and they won't stop dancing. You only need to wear comfortable clothes or go dressed as a chulapo. I'm not the type to make plans but I am really looking forward to San Isidro. Don't forget that this fiesta is very cosy and cheerful.

Clever stuff happening!
