Poisonous centipedes + flying cockroaches = summer in Japan
I found this monster terrorizing the neighbourhood yesterday. I told him in no uncertain terms is he to enter my apartment this summer.
I am still slightly traumatized from the time one of these guys crawled into bed with me while I was sleeping, and then bit me on the arm when I rolled on top of him. My arm swelled up like a football and the bite was painful and itchy for a good two weeks. The wound healed but the terror of waking up in bed with one of these things will never go away.
Welcome to summer in Japan.
