By the way, here's a route of the 10 mile walk I did yesterday. It was a nice walk, not too much traffic except around the Montlake bridge and the 520 overpass. I hit the Burke-Gilman trail for part of the way back after leaving the University. The zig-zag walk through Capitol Hill was great. It's one of my favorite areas and offers lots of inspiring view of the Space Needle and Puget Sound, especially refreshing after the hill-climb from Montlake.
On the way, I listened to a great episode of This American Life about inmates at a high-security prison as they rehearsed and staged a production of Hamlet. It was fascinating listening to murderers acting out a play about murder, and one critic said it was the best version of Hamlet he'd ever seen. Here's a link to the episode.
I parked the scooter in the neighborhood at the top right and walked clockwise. At the bottom left is where I hung out at Starbucks for a bit to fuel up and play on the internet.
