I was standing near the Irache wine fountain. A group got out of a van, and the lady leading came up to me and said in Spanish, “I heard the fountain isn’t working; do you know anything about that?”

I pointed to the sign in Spanish and English that said they put in only a hundred liters a day and answered in Spanish “Hundred liters a day; maybe they ran out.”

She turned around a told a group (in English), “this nice gentleman explained to me that …”

Then the group took a bunch of photos, hopped back in the van, and drove away. Across the top of the van was stenciled, “The best way to see the world is on foot.” Emphasis mine, obviously not theirs!

Your delightful post recalls a memory from my first CF in 2004. East of Melide near Coto when exhausted I wearily stopped to eat a second breakfast in the patio of a rather chic, but friendly, casa rural. To my surprise a small van of tourists arrived and a few hyper-tidy ‘Sunday pilgrims’ with walking sticks, but no packs, noisily exited in order to sample the trail! Spotting my pack and shell they politely asked “How long have you been walking?” “48 days!” I answered. Stunned they dashed to the bar and never moved on. ... Chacun a son gout!
