If you’ve been to the year-old Marlins Park, it’s impossible to see much evidence of the Marlins’ glorious past. the most esteemed pieces of hardware – two World Series trophies – are in storage. Sure, you can see the home run monu- ment, complete with water cannons and jumping mechanical fish. there’s the Bobblehead Museum in the main concourse, the retractable roof, the fancy cor- al-lined fish tank behind home plate, and the girls dancing atop the swimming pool bar at the clevelander, in deep left field.

Exotic encounters with orangutans await in this island adventure.

“You’re going where?” they ask in unison.

“Borneo,” I say.

Amusing responses from dear friends erupt. “Can’t you ever go anywhere normal?” And my favorite line: “I love redheads!” referring endearingly to the reddish-auburn fur of the indigenous orangutans.
