+        <p>
+          The <code>duration</code> logical type represents an amount of time
defined by a number of months, days and milliseconds. This is not equivalent to a number of
milliseconds, because, depending on the moment in time from which the duration is measured,
the number of days in the month and number of milliseconds in a day may differ. Other standard
periods such as years, quarters, hours and minutes can be expressed through these basic periods.
+        </p>
+        <p>
+          A <code>duration</code> logical type annotates Avro <code>fixed</code>
type of size 12, which stores three little-endian unsigned integers that represent durations
at different granularities of time. The first stores a number in months, the second stores
a number in days, and the third stores a number in milliseconds.
