Totten is visiting the five remaining countries around the globe still ruled by Communist parties: North Korea, Cuba, China, Laos, and Vietnam.
He has a Kickstarter campaign to reach the modest goal of $10,000 for the Vietnam trip.
If you like travel writing/journalism with an observant eye, some war correspondence and political/economic analysis as it relates to conditions on the ground, I recommend his work.
Donors will receive updates from his visit. It’s a solid pitch.

Michael Totten’s piece that revisits a Robert Kaplan piece from 1993, which is prescient: “A Writhing Ghost Of A Would-Be Nation”. It was always a patchwork of minority tribes, remnants of the Ottoman Empire
I just received a copy of Totten’s book, Where The West Ends, and it’s good reading.
