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.

PLEASE READ!: If you use a non-Spanish phone number please type it  exactly as it is dialed from Spain.


What’s On

Tell them you saw it on DigameXtra!

Bandits in Archez: The Bandits will be playing live at the newly re-opened Restaurante La Peña in Archez this coming Friday 6 March from 8.30pm, indoors of course at this time of year. La Peña is down by the river near the new Ayuntamiento. Keyboards, guitars, mandolin, saxophone and vocals by Rod Jones and Mitch France. The first set of acoustic oriented songs have been sent away for analysis and have been scientifically proven to aid digestion. It gets a bit livelier after that!
To reserve your table call Juan on 657 905 067 or just come along for a drink.


New Rotary Club in Nerja: The local Rotary district is seeking to expand into the Eastern Costa del Sol and as part of its initiative is looking to form an international club to be based in Nerja. This new club will be sponsored by the Rotary Club of Marbella-Guadalmina.
This new club will be looking to recruit in an area running from Almunecar to Rincorn de la Victoria. It wants to attract current and former Rotarians living in this area as well as people who would like to serve their community through Rotary the world’s largest service organisation.
The Club is currently meeting on the first and third Fridays of each month in The Curry House, Avda Mediterraneo, Nerja at 1400hrs for a 1430hrs meeting and lunch. The next meeting is 6th March. Further details through nerjarotary@gmail.com or telephone +44 7881 740144.

Warning – Thieves on Torrox Costa: On Saturday night I was out having a meal in a restaurant on Torrox Costa. I had placed my bag over the back of the Chair. I had my husband beside me and two friends opposite me. A group of 1 man and 2 women came in and sat behind us. They told the waitress they were waiting for a friend. After about 10 mins they got up to leave at the same time the waitress asked if my bag was ok. As I took my bag off the back of the chair they ran out into a waiting car and sped off with out lights. Of course they had removed the purse from my bag. I did not feel a thing. The Guardia Civil said they are operating along this part of the coast. Without the full number plate there is not much the police can do.
