Exotic (to a Westerner like me), alien, hard to get to. A challenge.
The seat of current conflict, a long and bloody history; the sort of place a wanna-be journalist might dream of visiting.
New Zealand in South America. A quasi-mythical place or a tax haven (depending on how you found out of its existence).
Familiar and safe, even to those who've never been to San Francisco (or even the U.S.).
So. Which of these places would your 2014 character most likely be found?

Uruguay! Because it is the hardest to say. Trudy would probably end up on a cattle farm that's going broke so she has to supplement her income with rodeo shows--but in pidgin Spanish.
Or something like that.
Luis Villalobos thinks he'd choose Uganda. In truth, and given his career in international tax, chances are small he'd be anywhere but Union Square. Or Uruguay. But highly unlikely he'd cross paths with Trudy in her failing farm; he'd stick to the financial center in Montevideo.
Under fences, bushes, shrubs--wherever Pedersen can watch but not be seen.
Sally-Anne, Mandy, and Guilie: Eww!
Susan: Yes, well. He's a creep.
And you? Uganda, Ukraine, Uruguay, or Union Square?
