About this blog / Acerca de este blog

¡Hola! This blog is to help us coordinate an exchange of pictures and whatever else from España. Especially if you have a very large number of photos to upload, I recommend putting pictures up on Picasa Web Albums and then posting a link on here, but you can also upload photos directly to the blog. I'm not sure if there's a space limit for pictures directly on the blog or not, but I don't think so. Buena suerte y mandenme cualquiera pregunta que tienen.
