In My Dreams

Communist tourism may be a fringe business

  


  but it can be a good one. Mao Zedong’s birthplace, in Shaoshan, Xiangtan, and Deng Xiaoping’s, in Guang’an, Sichuan, have become shrines.


  Or, tired of the usual sightseeing in Vietnam? Try trekking and crawling through the Ho Chi Minh Trail, the infamous military supply route through which North Vietnam armed the communist guerillas against the south and the mighty United States. It’s estimated that more American bombs were dropped along the 1,600km route during the Vietnam war than the entire second world war.


  Down on his luck since his disqualification as a legislator more than a year ago, “Long Hair” Leung Kwok-hung was going to try his hand as a communist tour guide – to Cuba. It was not entirely frivolous. Rather the business plan was more serious than most of his antics and proposals in the Legislative Council in the past two decades. And it wasn’t going to cost taxpayers anything Annie KO.


  Who in Hong Kong could claim to know more than Leung, a self-styled Trotskyite, about Cuba, or at least its late communist leaders who launched the revolution? The guy still wears his signature Che Guevara T-shirts after all these years. Sadly, the plan didn’t quite pan out.


  I could imagine sailing on a yacht along the route that took Che and Fidel Castro to launch the revolution that overthrew Fulgencio Batista, the corrupt dictator propped up by the Americans. That was the Latin American version of Lenin travelling by train to the Finland station.
