I think if you know some bbCode or about html you could do a better job, but dont worry about it, put the text over every pic and everything is ok, if you need to translate something that you don't understand use google, it will help you. If you need something in spanish always can pm me! :D

 

By the way the correct way is México without accent because in english doesn't exist.

I live here and never saw anything, you only know what tv/web show you, you really don't know what's happening!
