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

Yesterday I was with my friends on a very beautiful beach. It was in Cartagena de Indias, a city on the coast of Colombia. The sand was white and very fine, and the sea water was turquoise blue. We sunbathed on the beach, we ate some tamales and we drank raw sugar cane water. It was a very nice day but it was too hot and we didn't get out from under the parasol.

Clever stuff happening!
