Albany - The best part of America is Southern Hospitality. That's what some visitors from The land Down Under say about their visit here.

A group from Australia is touring the state through the rotary exchange program and getting a taste of what life in America is like. Jason McCoomb says the best part of his trip has been the people. "Everyone has been so generous cause we're staying with host families everywhere we go and everywhere we seem to go it keeps getting better. We're all a bit biased, but actually Albany's been, it's up there with the best at the moment, so it's really good," said McCoomb.

The group is visiting for five weeks and staying in host homes while they are here. Later this week, they'll visit tornado damaged Americus.
