Madagascar is a fascinating island home to 30 million people. It's also home to bizarre, volatile politics that virtually nobody knows about. Now, you will.
You might like our dogs as they hail from Madagascar. We bred Malagasy Cotons de Tuléar during Covid. Ours have direct connections to Madagascar, the first ones being brought to the U.S. in the 1970s by Dr. Jay Russell. Still fairly rare in this country, Cotons are a truly delightful breed. Check them out! (And thanks for the good read!)
A fascinating read on Madagascar. The modern day aspects regarding Russia are instructive. Did the lemur bite you when you tried to rescue your camera cord?
The only person I knew who was born in Madagascar was of mixed Yemeni and African descent. There has long been a Yemeni community in Madagascar, descendants of sailors and merchants who migrated there from Yemen. And now there are new migrants who fled the civil war in Yemen.
Typhoons and cyclones are essentially the same things. I think there may be a regional distinction in that typhoons are typically in the South Pacific. Hurricanes however, spin clockwise and cyclones spin counter-clockwise both due to the Coriolis effect of the earths rotation. Potato-potato you say but there is a distinct difference in how each affects weather. That’s as far as I can get on memory.
