Hare Krishnas taking a dip in La Gomera

A busload of members of the Hare Krishna cult, apparently Spanish-speaking and from mainland Spain, arrived in Valle Gran Rey in La Gomera's southwest last Saturday and caused quite a stir. Many visitors and locals were attracted to the scene of chanting Hare Krishnas taking to the sea in the rock pool of Charco del Conde, commonly and aptly known as 'baby beach', where they formed a circle standing in the water. I didn't even know that Hare Krishnas still existed in such numbers...
Many thanks to J. and E. for the images. Music by 'Gong'
