Bugs back...
I'd heard a lot about Japanese insects before I came here. About the Japanese hornets with a wingspan of 3 inches, Japanese red caterpillars (you really must watch this), orb spiders (aka my worst nightmare), but when I got to my room I was happy to find it free of any kind of bug at all. Then I noticed a gnat.

Tonight I came home to this beauty (not actual size), and promptly, and safely, relocated it to the outside of my apartment.

At this rate from a gnat the first night to a beetle the 2nd, I don't want to think about what's going to be here in 3 months...
