Most enjoyable, perfectly spoken and easy to follow. Thanks. But what is a "menina"? It's not in my Larousse dictionary . . .

Hola Garry

Glad you enjoyed this reading exercise!

"Menina" is originally a Portuguese word meaning generally "girl", but in Velázquez painting "meninas" refers to the ladys-in-waiting that are in the picture surrounding the princess.
