I know this has nothing to do with the D.R. but, after reading about the Chinese govt. helping the Dominican players coming to Beijing I thought I'd post this. I am in China now came here to get married. My wife is Chinese. HOWEVER, it is not easy here. YES, the people are friendly, cities are clean but, bring lots of cash for the games. It is very hard to use international credit cards here. Most major hotels take them but, almost no where else. Also most ATM's don't accept them either. Neither do most rest. I had to get extra cash and spent over an hour in the bank lots of paperwork. Beijing is a modern city lights and water all the time. I am staying in an apt. in Jinan and it is the same. Just a thought bring CASH.
