    I have just got back from the honeymoon with a ring on my finger and a slight sunburn on my shoulders, I have to admit, New Orleans is Amazing!

    The wedding went perfectly - great weather despite a 50% chance of rain and 30% chance of thunderstorms, a gorgeous boat cruise, and an alcohol fueled after party.

    New Orleans is a great city, it looks a bit rundown, but it's character and friendliness are pretty top notch. The food was great, and we to get us upgraded twice in to a luxury cottage in the city centre.

    It has takena  year to get this all through immigration, and we still have a fair bit of money to spend, and paperwork to fill in, it all seems worth it though!

    Now back to writing, and wasting time in the forums of course!

    Thanks for the well wishes, there are wedding photos which I will at some point manage to sort through!

    I am not an american yet, I still need to apply for a change of status, which will cost around another $1000 to submit another application.

    It's all fun and games though!

    New Orleans is an amazing city, if it was not for the heat, which seems even hotter than austin, I would be moving there like a shot!
