Don't judge me with your eyes, Platero. I had the best intentions helping the lost walkers on their way.
I know there is a shorter route, but that couple seemed sympathetic and I had the impression that their restaurant was still filled up.
Thanks to the detour I made them take, they get a nice view over the valley, walk past the cherry trees - currently in full bloom - and can see the foal grazing in the meadow since yesterday.
Admit, Platero, they'll enjoy it more than just turning right at the end of the road to get there.
