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.

Torrox Spanish History Group: We will be meeting on Tuesday the 4th February at 11am in El Parquesol. Our next Speaker will be Nigel Partridge who will continue with the theme of the Arabs. Nigel’s talk is called “Islamic Spain 711 – 1492”.
At our meeting on Tuesday the 7th January we had a short AGM and discussed future meetings. It was suggested that we could have a quiz just before Christmas at the end of the year and also a discussion or debating group for one of the meetings where members could send in their particular area for debate
We also discussed future coach trips and some members would like to visit Santa Fe which we could incorporate in going to the Lorca Museum in Fuente Vaqueros as well as the farm where he spent his later years.
I presented a talk on the “Rise of Islam” explaining life before Islam and the life of Muhammad and I then described the chaos that arose with Muhammad’s untimely death as to who would take over as the new Leader of Islam and gave a brief overview of all the Caliphs who followed up until the 715AD when the Ummayds were in control and when in 711 the Arabs crossed the Straits of Gibraltar, making their way to Iberia.
The next part is being taken up by Nigel Partridge!
If you would like to know more about the Torrox Spanish History Group then please email me at patricianerja at hotmail dot come or just come along on Tuesday.

New Cafes, BLQ 79 (East side), Torrox Costa: Two adjacent cafes with outdoor covered terraces have opened. One is called the Portabello Cafe, who’s propritor and chef, I am told, was previously cooking at Richi’s Pollo Asador at BLQ 77. Hours are 8:30am-9pm. Offering typical Spanish breakfast items in morning, then later tapas and plates, with full bar. The other cafe, with no sign with a name outside, just a menu board, opens later and closes depending on customers, offering drinks, cocktails, tapas and snacks. I have seen them doing a large Pallea on the weekend. They have pop music playing and 60’s posters on the walls. Both are far off the streets, with their terraces placed in the large lawns between BLQs. If you want a place to chill out away from the traffic and crowds, these two fit the bill!
