‘Balsa’ Ride

With the decades-old hanging bridge recently decommissioned so the city government of Iligan can build a more sturdy bridge, residents of the coastal barangay of Tambacan (left side of the river) ride a “balsa” to cross the narrow Tubod River going towards the old public market and vice versa. Passengers pay three pesos a ride after enduring a long queue. MindaNews photo by BOBBY TIMONERA
