After breakfast I needed to get to my hotel, but I wasn't sure if I wanted to go via taxi or walk. Google maps said it was a little over three miles, and it was cool weather, so I figured I'd start walking. Unfortunately I also had my suitcase and backpack full of stuff. Anyway, I set off.
My start was in the upper left, and hotel destination is in the circle at the lower right. It wasn't that bad, but it started to get a little hilly. I couldn't see an open cab though! Finally I caught one unloading at Broadway, so I had walked about 1.3 miles, according to Google maps.
I noticed that the gas prices were "only" $2.99 for unleaded! That's only $0.20 - $0.25 more than Austin. I thought gas was more expensive out here. I remember when I visited San Jose for previous ELSA job gas was at least 2x the TX price.
