    THE FRENCH LINER 'FRANCE' PUT IN TO DAKAR FOR CHRISTMAS. THE LINER IS ON A?

  • Description

    THE FRENCH LINER 'FRANCE' PUT IN TO DAKAR FOR CHRISTMAS. THE LINER IS ON A WINTER CRUISE WITH MORE THAN 1,000 TOURISTS ON BOARD. MANY WENT ASHORE TO SEE THE CHARMS OF SENEGAL AND ITS ISLANDS.

    THE SHIP WAS PAYING HER THIRD CALL AT DAKAR IN THREE YEARS. AMONG THE ARRANGEMENTS MADE TO ENTERTAIN TOURISTS ASHORE WERE TOURS AND HUNTING.

    THE 'FRANCE' BECAUSE OF HER DEPTH HAD TO ANCHOR OFF DAKAR, NEAR THE ISLE OF GOREE. THE ISLE, NOTED FOR ITS BEACHES AND UNDERWATER FISHING, IS TO BECOME A HOLIDAY PLAYGROUND UNDER A NATIONAL TOURIST PLAN.

    THE NEXT STOP ON THE CRUISE: FREETOWN.
