How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Recommendations

Greek Casita- Torrox Costa: Their New Year’s Eve party was a great success, with live music provided throughout the night by a capable duo of guitarist/singer and cajon player.
This was no buffet (although there was a self-serve fruit and cheese table), all 4 courses were served individually. All tables had pita bread, cuke slices and tasty tzatziki dip, plus water and wine bottles. The first course at 8PM was a huge Greek style antipasto full of sliced meats, cheeses, Greek olives and stuffed grape leaves, with an Ouzo shot on the side. We had some time for digesting and dancing before the second course, a cheese filled potato dish pastry reminiscent of a soft Knish, one of my favorite NYC foods. For the 12:30AM main course I opted for the very tasty grilled herb-feta stuffed octopus; it arrived with a delicious sweet/lemony greens veg on the side.
This was certainly the most food I have been served in a restaurant meal, and I am sure I have left out some items, so much food! I was not drinking, but the wine and water bottles on the tables were replaced promptly when empty. The courses were spaced out so there was plenty of time to socialize and digest. A nice relaxed, enjoyable evening indeed, and unlike any other event I have attended in the area! We even took a break at midnight (between the 2nd and 3rd courses) to walk to the beach as some patrons launched Chinese lanterns toward Morocco. As I had a lonely dog to attend to I skipped the dessert, said goodbye to my new friends, and headed home at 1:30AM. Naythan/Torrox Costa doctorlaptop@protonmail.com
