Sahara

Day 33: St-Louis

Michael Palin - SaharaMarie-Madeleine remembers the day she and Jacob went to the tribunal to get married.

'They asked Jacob, "Do you want to be monogamous or polygamous?"'

Jacob goes on. 'When I said monogamy, the judge just looked at me and said, "Hold on. Are you crazy, man?" I said why. He said, "You're a man, you'll regret this."'

Marie-Madeleine heaves with laughter.

'And how long have you been married?' I ask.

'Thirty years.'

As I leave I tell them we have to be in Dakar next morning. Jacob grimaces.

Has he ever thought of moving to the capital?

He shakes his head dismissively.

'Never!'

'Why is that?'

'Dakar has no soul, no life! Pas d'âme!'
