Warning: this blog post is not for the squeamish! I’ve become somewhat numbed to the shock of seeing so many bugs and animals in the house since coming to India, but the I thought the bug that I saw the other day deserves a special mention.

I’m quite used to seeing ant super-highways snake their way round the kitchen wall, I’ve killed more cockroaches than Rentokill and peacefully shared my living space with lizards but this beast of a bug that I discovered on my bedroom wall the other day…I don’t know what the hell it is but it was fricking massive!

The following morning my housemate proceeded to kill it. By accidentally stepping on it with their oafish feet. Incredibly they claimed that they didn’t even notice this giant size bug!

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Dunno, but it's a bloody big!

And while I’m writing a topic about bugs, who knew that cockroaches could fly!

    Was considering come over again but just changed my mind! I thought the mozzies were bad enough but that would traumatise me for life.

    Mission accomplished!

    Err, I mean, I’m almost positive that there won’t be anything worse than this, mum!

    whoa. That is one ugly bug. I probably would have put a hole in the wall from throwing things at it. But stepping on it with my bare feet – uh, no.

    and, yes – flying cockroaches are sent straight from hell. Snakes, ants, beetles – no problem. Spiders and cockroaches – ack.

    I guess you just get used to them when you’re outside the US. I like the Indian people, but I don’t see myself moving there anytime soon. Of course, if Obama stays in office….
