Travel Photo: Pink Pump-boats

Today, I will be featuring a photograph I took shortly after my arrival in an island off the coast of Southern Leyte.

Where in the world is this?


I was mesmerized after seeing these nicely painted, colorful pink pump-boats in Limasawa Island, at the tip of Southern Leyte. Pump-boats are lined up on the shore in Brgy. Lugsongan where I stayed for 3 days. Being a small island, pump-boats in Limasawa are used for transportation and fishing. Based on a local tale, Limasawa comes from two Visayan words, lima and asawa, which literally means, five wives.

"Your life is an island separated from all other islands and continents. Regardless of how many boats you send to other shores or how many ships arrive upon your shores, you yourself are an island separated by its own pains, secluded in its happiness." -Kahlil Gibran
