Connaissez-vous le village de ODLOT ?

The Philippines.

One day I send a mail to a friend in Nice and she responds Odlot. My traveler was there in his little paradise.

On his return to France, she had brought some bags of sand in his luggage. My surprise was great to see one of them such a density of foraminifera.

This is turning one of these urchins that I realized "he was going to eat my foraminifera" . The rascal was unforgivable. I photographed in the act. We do not eat “Calcarine”.
