Buenos días, ¿cómo amaneciste?


Explanation:
Good day, how did you awaken? (literally) ...or how did the sun rise for you this morning?

or in American, Good morning, how are you doing today?

Impress them with that! Good Mexican expression, but understood everywhere I think. Have fun!

Hey people!


Explanation:
I think Wanda is addressing us, not asking how to translate "good morning".

Am I right, Wanda?

Good luck! :-)
