Tonight, it’s rumoured the The Amazing Racers hit Dakar. Cool. I got a really bad nosebleed there once. It would be interesting to see if Gorée Island factors into the race somehow. However, involving the main processing site for the slave trade in a game show might be construed as lacking in taste. It could end up being the Pit Stop at the end, seeing as racers would have to navigate Dakar traffic to catch the ferry over to the island. And one would assume Youssou N’Dour will stand alongside Phil to greet them on the Amazing Bathmat.
*No, I do not remember any Wolof phrases. I had to look it up
