Muy Linda ?

When we were in Guatemala all the staff at the hotel would come up to us and say


"Muy LINDA!"....to Abby


...I had no clue what that meant had to wait to look that up when i got home!



Means "Pretty" in Spanish...


Must be hell to be told your pretty all the time ;o)

Perhaps they were saying "Muy Linda"? Mi linda would be 'my pretty' while Muy linda would be 'very pretty'. Either way...life would be just so rough when that is what you heard all day!! (: Besides when it's true what else would you expect!!!!
