Five countries, but only one option.

If you were forced to choose from one of the following five countries, which would you choose to live in? (And don't say "neither" - pretend you were forced to choose one to live in.)

1. North Korea.

2. Zimbabwe.

3. Somalia.

4. Afghanistan.

5. Uganda.

Which would you choose?

If I had money, North Korea. Presuming i'd be a lowly peasant I'd choose Zimbabwe.

Have been to all except Somalia. Uganda should not even be on that list, total outlier.

How on earth did you go NK? :holmes: I'd say Uganda out of all of the list though.

Uganda has violent uprisings and Ebola. I'd go with Zimbabwe anyday


...unless you prefer Ebola

There are a few tours you can go on to NK (obviously heavily restricted and you certainly won't see any labour camps or famine and I believe its quite difficult to get on them), though I did wonder how/why he would have gone to NK or Afghanistan, not saying he's lying, its just they're hardly tourist destinations

Kampala and Entebbe are both thriving cities. People are generally pleased to see tourists. The LRA/Kony lot have been irrelevent for a long time.

N. Korea is generally safe for foreigners.

Somalia WAS an utter anarchy, or as close as any state has come to (in my opinion).

Zimbabwe: You have Mugabe and you never know when he will flip. Inflation is crazy.

Afghanistan: It is obvious, is it not?

I like Ebola viruses blood coming out of every orifice on the body, along with my fingernails falling off and bleeding is on my to do list....

Personally Northern Ireland should be on that list instead of Uganda

You answered that exactly on my behalf, haha thanks. Yes you can go on tours. Contrary to popular belief, its not THAT hard to get on. Unless you are a known journalist (i.e. they can find you easily on net). And I did not get to see any camps or anything...

Hahaha yeah it could be.

If we are going to go on just pure violence rather than pseudostats then you should replace Zimbabwe perhaps by New York? I am not sure what OP is saying with his choice of states...

The word 'anti-climax' pretty much sums it up. It was interesting but as you said in your post you dont get to see the real DPRK, and although I knew that before going, I still hoped that I would see something. You can see its a poor state but you dont get the sense that its a failed state.
