To link in with the previous post on travelling by bus from Brazil to Bolivia through Paraguay, here is a short piece that I submitted to the World Nomad’s Travel Writing Scholarship 2012 competition:
It’s not my finest moment but it’s done now. Submitted. End of.
The biggest challenge was keeping it within the 2,000 character limit (and that included spaces) whilst still capturing enough detail.
I don’t know if it makes any difference how many people read and comment on the piece or not… some competitions seem to work like that… but of course, as ever, I’d love feedback from you (and if it’s really bad or super constructive, maybe do it on here instead!).
Not to self: never do things in a hurry.
