Amelia in Africa

Barley Hugg, Location Historian

Reaching Africa was a big part of Amelia Earhart’s trip.  On June 9, 1937 Earhart flew the short distance from St. Louis to Dakar.  That city may sound familiar to some car racing fans out there.  The Dakar Rally is a desert car race that usually ends in Dakar.  It used to go from Paris, France to Dakar.  Well, Amelia Earhart used a plane and pretty much started in Dakar.  Her route was Dakar, Gao, N’Djamena, Fasher, Khartoum, Massawa, and finally Assab.  Let’s take a short look at those cities.
