How to run, test, try Openstack on a Public Cloud like AWS, Azure, etc.?

I want to play with Openstack and only have access to public cloud machines like AWS, Azure, etc...(Also have free trial credits on those) Would be open to Rackspace Public, etc. though...

AWS won't let it happen (VMs don't run inside of VMs there)..I think. Tried Juju and just a VM for each service on AWS (Cinder&Nova compute fail). AWS Nanostack fails.

I can fire up an ubuntu instance on Azure and tried devstack (installed but VMs fail to start), cloudhyd (same problem), dodai-deploy fails to start the openstack services, vagrant/virtualbox (ala Openstack Cookbook 2nd ed) - vagrant hangs

So many fails...
