Seattle's underground is really interesting. If you take the tour, you will learn about the city's history of making terrible decisions with regard to public planning. Suffice it to say that after years of a bad sewage system and several fires, the city finally decided to build a new sewage system where the streets were, raising the streets in the process anywhere from 8 to 36 feet.
However, it was years before they actually raised the sidewalks! Can you imagine climbing up a ladder (sometimes 36 feet high) to cross the street and then climbing back down to continue walking? No wonder Microsoft's software is so convoluted. They certainly come by it naturally.
The light downunder the ground is beautiful--especially from the purple glass in-laid into the sidewalk in places-- and it's all very peaceful. I'ld advise you to take a good camera along so you can capture better photos than these in such dim light.
