Boating on the Bojo
The Bojo River has been a lifeline for the people of Aloguinsan, a sparsely populated area of Cebu Province in the Philippines. In recent years, Cebu became a tourist destination when locals started offering cruises along the Bojo in small, outrigger-style boats like the one seen in this photo. But even with this new industry boosting the local economy, Aloguinsan remains an out-of-the-way spot - larger towns and cities nearby attract more visitors.
However the remoteness of the Bojo has always been part of the selling point and those who take a ride down the river get a taste of the quiet life in the fishing villages along its banks.
