We were brought to the docks in a tricycle (see below) where we boarded one of these bound for Boracay. This is a bumboat, and they zip between the islands like bees among flowers. They are motorized, but still have a crew of three or four to escort the tourists aboard and push off from shore with a long bamboo pole. They have virtually no keel, hence the wide braces.
There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.
