We just arrived in our last city and hotel. It’s called Dong Xiang and this is the Dong Xian International Hotel. Huge place with massive amounts of staff, we have 2 translators, 2 floor translator service ladies, 2 maids, and 2 bellboys all just waiting for one of us to open our door. This is one of the nicer places we’ve stayed in over here.
We flew into a city/airport about 1 hour 30 minutes away and it was a beautiful newer airport that had KFC…we talked them into buying us food, chicken sandwich with fries, pepsi, and hot fudge sundaes. Wow did that taste good. That really hit the spot.
We play tomorrow afternoon vs. Brazil, then the next afternoon vs. Australia and finally the last night vs. China. Apparently this is a huge and nice arena.
We’ll update you with the next game results as soon as we can. Cheers!
