There are LOTS of creepy crawlies in tropical places. (Well, there are lots of animals in tropical places, so it just goes with the formula.) I was reading the blog of someone who lived in the Costa Rican rainforest. Tropical paradise, right? Supposedly you should always look ahead when you're walking, because it's easy to walk into a spiderweb and then be covered in golden orb spiders.It must suck to be arachnophobic down there.
