short and sweet

Our internet is STILL down, so I my postings will have to suck for a bit while I hurriedly type and post in this cramped internet cafe. I promise to send interesting stuff very soon.

I believe it is a cockroach...or a relative of one. Apparently you cant smush cockroaches here or their eggs will fly everywhere. Instead you have to spray it and trap it under a cup until it dies. horrible, I know. So far nothing has penetrated my trusty mosquito net though!

the cockroach reminded me of life of pi. you should use it to catch fish, thats what I would have done. I hate those things though. Can you bring one back though...for a pet?
