Dakar Returning to Africa?

Sure sounds like it could happen. The head of the Dakar is now talking about discussions his organization has been having with countries in the East and South of Africa. Sad that given the continued instability and lawlessness of areas in West Africa the ASO is considering countries like Egypt and South Africa, a country where terrorist attacks on tourists are quite common (in one case) and another that leads the world in instances of rape (in the other).

If you are talking about getting the Dakar back to where it rightly belongs, anything short of starting the even in Western Europe and ending it in DAKAR is a cop out. And if you are not going to return it to its traditional route I say keep it in the lands of parties that last for months and beaches inhabited by the best looking women this side of a Victoria's Secret catalog...
