Big Bug

I found a bug, quite literally. This big bug was crawling around on the sidewalk when I went to the cafeteria a few days ago. I have the impression that insects around here tend to be bigger than in Germany.

Black bug with white spots and long antennae

It’s surprising how many animals I see around the city: lizards, toads, and of course cats. On warm and dry summer days the crickets make a lot of noise, but I’m getting used to it.


  1. If you see that bug again, put something aside it everyone is familiar with, e.g. a match, a coin – or a ruler if you have one handy.

    • You have a point, although the bug was a bit camera shy, so putting an object next to it would’ve been difficult. The body was about 2cm long.
