Lately our house has been flooded by unexpected visitors. I guess there was a party I didn’t know about! Sometimes they show up together and sometimes they prefer to show up alone. Now in the states, I was used to the occasional summertime mosquito, an ugly spider, or the ever famous ant trail, but I have to say I still haven’t gotten used to what I find in my home here.
Stick bugs, millipedes, and frogs have been the latest visitors, but we’ve also entertained snakes, lizards, a rat who saw our open door as an opportunity to come inside, birds, and let’s not forget the monkey who perched itself on our gated door (sadly, I wasn’t personally home to witness that one).
Now am I just the silly American who notices this strange posse, or is this really strange? I know this little tidbit doesn’t help some of your impressions of Africa, but I’m just sayin, “I’ve found it all a bit strange lately…”
