Freeform Writing Exercise B2
About "pero", this is how this sort of sentence is expressed in a more natural way in Spanish, using "pero" at the beginning -because in English you don't need that, we have given the "literary" note so that you realize you need to include "but" in your Spanish sentence.
About adding "mucho" to the sentence for "tardar mucho tiempo", that word was missing from the hint, so it is now saying "to take long = tardar mucho tiempo"
