You try it once and you are addicted. It might sound like a cliché and I might be exaggerating, but to me it seems to be the case.
Dakar has completely changed my life and has brought to me new perspectives that I did not even dream about 5 years ago. Even if it is just around 15 days per year, Dakar has become a part of my everyday life and has changed my future plans, my friends, hobbies and has started to be my job, so it is fair enough to say that Dakar is a lifestyle, at least in my case.
