DigameXtra user tip! How to get around the “3 pics max per For Sale ad” submission rule!

Want to include more photos than the submission rules allow? Use collages to post more pics per post. You can combine several of your pics into a single collage pic by using this free (you need to provide email) online tool. So by using this tool, your 3 pics submitted may actually be many more pics. See this example where I put four pics into a single photo. Following this example you could post 12 pics total but only send in 3 pics. https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Samothraki Greek Restaurant- Torrox Costa: I would like to recommend this newly reopened cafe to everyone who enjoys Greek food. I am on a very restricted diet (pesco-vegan/keto, lost 16kg in 2 months so far!) yet they made every effort to cater to my needs. The classic Greek salad starter was perfect. My second course was a prawn/veg casserole with that wonderful fragrant Greek seasoned tomato sauce, very distinct from it’s Italian cousin. They have a full bar and as Summer approaches they are expanding the menu. Coming soon are new exotic seafood specialties and authentic Gyros. Great food and service, a winning combo!
Location & Contact: Paseo Maritimo, BLQ 80 bajo. This is a few steps up the path between the blocks, on the East side of BLQ 80. Tel 642 585 049

Join our rescue dog foster group! Whilst a rescue dog is waiting for its forever home it is essential that the dog can live with people in a real home.
Small but active rescue associations CORAZON BLANCO PARA LOS ANIMALES and APISMAM of Oscar del Bosque need temporary homes for rescued dogs that are waiting for their forever homes.
In a foster home the dog feels secure, gets good care and learns skills of a home dog. The time in a foster home can be from a few days to a few months. You can decide how long you can offer your home to a foster dog. The dogs that need homes are coming in to the associations almost every day. They are different breeds and different sized dogs.
See our DOG gallery in Facebook:   https://www.facebook.com/Coraz%C3%B3n-Blanco-Animal-271942700300734/
Come and join our dog foster group! Open your door and heart to the dogs that need help.
Please contact Sari Karhapää on email or via Facebook. Thank you.
