Tough Egg

Yooo all! I am back on the blog!

After three lovely long holiday months, we came back in time for Soleine's fresh start of Grade 4 of the American School of Antananarivo (ASA).

In a way my blog's silence nicely represents the country's silence. Nothing has happened during our absence. When I left, the Malagasy soap series called Presidential Elections had entered its fourth season. The first three seasons had gone by with elections being postponed three times.  They were then planned for July 26, but...postponed again to August. In August they were pushed back to October and December, and... well, let me stop here. 

These elections seem to be a very tough egg to crack.

Just like the one I found this morning by our chickens Tola and Chicky. Take a look at this !It goes to show: you can expect anything to happen in Madagascar!
Has anyone ever seen a sculpted egg like this? It's real!

p.s. Hugo, are you still reading my blog. SOS: have you ever seen this? 


  1. It's good to have you back :-) love getting small facts and updates from Madagascars. Keep them coming ;-)

  2. Hi Suzanne,

    Yes, I am a faithful follower, and no, I have not seen an egg as badly deformed as that one. There was probably something going on with the part of the assembly line that lays down the calcium on the egg, like inflammation or over active. It usually is a one time occurrence. Often in young birds. You will have to see if you get any more like that.
    On a personal note, we are back in Canada. We drove back with our four dogs. We made it safely and without any problems with the exception that our orange Xterra died in Tucson, and we had to get a new one.

    Cheers to all,
