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

The Spaniard Javier Colorado has crossed the Amazon River in a canoe. The Amazon is one of the longest rivers in the world and he crossed it with only one canoe that was five meters long. He personally made the canoe which he was going to travel with. His route was 3000 kilometers and he suffered many storms during his journey. The best part of the trip was the spectacular landscape and the worst part was the wind, since he was afraid of capsizing. What an interesting adventure!
