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.

Coronavirus In Spain, Update: Spain’s Health Ministry predicts coronavirus epidemic will last between two and five months.
A total of 2,109 infections have been registered in the country so far, with the number of deaths from the Covid-19 disease at 49. Under ideal circumstances, if all of the measures being taken to control the spread of coronavirus work perfectly in Spain, the Health Ministry believes that the Covid-19 epidemic could come to an end in the country in two months. But this outcome is so idyllic that the experts consider it to be highly unlikely. “In the worst case, it could last four or five months,” said Fernando Simón, the director of the Health Ministry’s Coordination Center for Health Alerts and Emergencies. Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, Simón confirmed the latest number of confirmed infections in Spain at 2,109, and the number of deaths at 49.

Dispute over ‘illegal’ parking fines in Nerja: The Autonomous Motorhome Platform of Spain (PACA) has officially denounced the Council after receiving more than 50 complaints from mobile home owners who have been served what the group calls ‘illegal’ parking fines.
The fines relate to parking in certain ‘prohibited’ areas or for parking for longer than the maximum stipulated period of time. But PACA President, Jesús Gallardo, argued that the majority of the 100-plus tickets issued, with an average amount of €50, were imposed ‘illegally’, and will be appealed against.

Brexit Hotline

The Spanish government has a hotline to answer all queries from Brits living in Spain about the implications of Brexit, in English. Callers can ring 060 when in Spain or +34 902 887060 if calling from abroad and an automated system will offer the choice of either Spanish or English.
You will then be offered a choice of information on the different issues.
The service also offers the option of speaking to an operator for those requiring further information or with a specific query not dealt with by the automated options. Source: https://www.thelocal.es/20200218/spain-launches-dedicated-brexit-hotline
