#atozchallenge: Uganda, Ukraine, Uruguay, or Union Square?

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). 

Union Square
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.

Union Square.

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?

Thanks for the visit, and happy last full week of A-to-Z-ing!


  1. Where's Utopia? Where the dogs are obviously. But I guess this western gal would choose somewhere different eg Uruguay .. I believe it really is beautiful - like U?

  2. I am not a writer but I'd pick Union Square SF b/c I worked a couple blocks from it in the Financial District for many years.

  3. Union Square for me, too. At least then I can visit, using the excuse of Research! :)

  4. Union Square for me too. Although both Uruguay and Uganda would be exotic....

  5. The students at Olympus hail from all over the globe, one of the main characters is from South Africa (Tariro), so Uganda wouldn't be too far fetched a visit.
