How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. 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, each pic submitted may actually be many more pics combined. https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Subsidies now available for buyers of sustainable vehicles: A grant of 5,500 euros is now available for people buying an electric car, financed by the Andalusian Energy Agency with funds from the Spanish government. There are also subsidies for plug-in hybrid cars, battery-powered motorcycles and small lorries and vans which use alternative fuels such as gas.
