Following is a survey of the places where The Chess Drum has traveled to show the world the universality of chess. Regardless of where one travels, there are going to be chess activities.
While The Chess Drum has brought to these pages many high-level events (including six Olympiads), the best stories in chess were on non-chess visits. These places include Cuba, Kenya, South Africa and Vietnam. These communities did not have the best resources, but they made up for it in passion. It is my hope that we can add to this roster in the coming years!
