I think winter in Tianjin is on the decline. The cockroaches in my dorm are peeking out more and more often. One just poped out and reminded me to mention it. 不好

We can totally understand the cockroach issue. Except, it’s 30 degrees here and humid and they are still out in full force! Not only those, but we also have huge spiders to worry about too. The last one Rick killed was about 6 inches in diameter, not a word of a lie. They are the nastiest things I’ve seen.
Well, we are looking forward to snail mail!!
Six inch diameter!? Ewww. I’m hapy to report that there’s nothing that exciting here. They just peek out from under the bed or my desk from time to time.
When I first arrived the bugs creeped me out, but a few traps and clean kitchen habits had an immediate effect. They pretty much went away until now when I’ve seen only a couple peek out from under furnature over the course of a couple weeks. It’s a good reminder to refresh the traps.
They’re unwelcome guests, but thankfully they’re not too big of a menace around here — literally and figuratively speaking.
It’s actually not so terrible. In many parts of the world cockroaches are as common as fruit flies. When you keep your house clean and your food sealed they really aren’t a big deal. Their just strange since the Vancouver region of Canada, as you know, doesn’t actually see the little critters.
