still on the road here in borneo.  ive left the diving behind to my great regret but at least my knee is feeling better now that im not swimming for 4 hours a day.  diving's version of swimming is using your legs at all times so my knee was pretty wiped out at the end.  we've bussed it a little bit across borneo and have come to the conclussion that all the towns on this little island are pretty shabby.  we'll just be diplomatic and call them rustic and leave it at that.  im now in a little town where the orangutan sanctuary is.  went in today to watch the feedings....they come in from the wild swinging on ropes to a platform to eat their bananas and sugar cane.  it was very cool to watch the interactions between the different members of the society.....they are definitely a window into ourselves when you watch them.  it was pretty peaceful until a troop of macaques showed up and then all hell broke loose as they tried to steal the food out from under the bigger but more peaceful orangutans.  the big dominent male definitely put on a show.....baring his teeth and having sex with various members of the tribe while we all sat and watched....its good to be king!!  borneo is hot and it really wiped us out today as we sat in the sun and watched these guys run amok.  tomorrow its back on the bus and off to a national park for a few days of camping.  the girl im with is still a pain in the ass so im really interested to see how she handles the camping bit.  she left the orangutans after 20 minutes because she was "hot and feeling a little feint".  wish me luck
