if you have the cash, you can always get a simon gift card....they work just like visas.....i think you can get them at malls.....you just give them the amount of money you want on it, and they give you a visa.....it's like a "prepaid credit card"
Do you have the money? I'm paying for my own ticket and trip translating theatre plays (and I guess the alliteration is having effects on me...). Get the odd jobs that appeal to the rich guys. Also make sure nobody else is doing it so you don't have any competition and can charge whatever you want. I charge 300 dollars per play.
