Me and my partner Ales are from the Czech Republic, currently living in Prague with our daughter Laura. I am a laywer on maternity leave and Ales is a freelance architect. We are travelling to the US to visit Ales's sister and her family and join them for Thanksgiving and the christening ceremony of one of her little boys in Alabama. We thought it might be a good idea to see more of this part of the country and visit New Orleans. This will be our last stop and we will be going back home on November 30.
