Things that go bump in the night

It’s not long leggity beasties like this that bother me here:


It’s the powerful electrical storm that raged for hours last night- lighting up the sky and shaking the door of my bunkhouse
The problem is that I have to walk 15 km through another predicted storm today
Something I’m not totally wild about

But on the subject of spiders
I think this one was a tarantula. The one that scares me is the Brazilian Wandering Spider that has a habit of turning up in packs of bananas in suburban homes across england.

It’s allegedly the most poisonous spider in the world. It can kill you. Or  Leave you with rotting flesh.

It can also give you an erection that lasts for seven hours which then leaves you impotent.

Which seems just plain cruel
