So how did the name "Dakar" get transfered from Africa to S. America ? btw - I do understand the rich history of the Dakar race in Africa organized by the French. Wouldn't it be akin to transfering "The Isle of Man" to Vashon Island, WA, USA ? ? ? Hmmmmmm . . . . . . . Feel free to shyeeit in this thread as I've come to expect it here . . . . . What say ye ?
