Today the Postman has to deliver the letters to six houses - the A, B, C houses on the left and the X, Y, Z - on the right. Unfortunately, the houses are not linked with each other by direct paths and thus, the Postman's route has to pass through around other six houses - marked with the numbers 1-6 on the diagram. The Postman starts at house A in the upper left corner and wishes to finish his route at house Z in the lower right corner - where he knows he will be treated with a cup of coffee after all the letters are delivered.

What is the shortest route the Postman has to choose in order to deliver all the letters to the A-C and X-Z houses?
