Moomba

I had a ball at today's Melbourne Moomba Parade. Despite the inclement weather conditions at daybreak (torrential rain and ominous black clouds) the weather held out and nary a drop fell on the 60 participating groups and 200,000 audience.

off we go:

The Melbourne Hare Krishnas did what they're best at - singing and dancing in the street, chanting the Hare Krishna Mantra. I led the chanting and felt the usual 'frisson' as we bounded down Swanston Street.

The audience response was very encouraging, with waving cheering and singing along with the mantra, which is almost a household name.

animation:

After an ebullient hour we pulled in to the park adjoining the Yarra for a group photograph, and then bussed home, tired little teddy bears, for lunch.
