You can get to the backside of Molokai Island in various ways, but none of them are as easy as taking the Tube in London, Diamond Lane in Los Angeles, or the train in Tokyo.

You can travel them on the backs on horses, by light aircraft, or if you are really hardy, by swimming.

But there is a 2-lane swimming pool tucked away among the greenery of the northern coast of Molokai, surrounded by the foliage of a tropical island, complete with an old-school analogy pace clock and a single lane line and the familiar lane lines that strip every other competitive swimming pool in the world.
