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

Yesterday something rather peculiar happened to us. We were in the center of Seville and it started to rain very heavily. So as to not wait for the bus, we decided to take a taxi. What a bad idea! To start with, the taxi arrived 20 minutes late and the taxi driver was very unfriendly. Besides, he did not know the route well and that's why we got lost in the city. But that was not the worst... The taxi did not have enough petrol and the car suddenly stopped in a street. Two hours later we arrived home.

Getting that for you now...
