What is the homology groups of the torus with a sphere inside?

I'm trying to find the homology groups of this space X in this link below:

http://tinypic.com/r/bymmd/6

The easiest part is H_0(X)=Z, because X is connected. In order to find H_1(X) I think the easiest method is finding its fundamental group, but I don't know the fundamental group of this space, it's my first problem.

My second problem is to find H_2(X), I don't know how to triangulate this picture and I don't know how to use Mayer-Vietoris in this case.

I really need help here, any help or comment would be appreciated.

Thanks a lot
