Tired of Barcelona,

Rome

London? Try

exotic Ypsilanti

By Eric Zorn

Y PSILANTI. SURE, you think, I'll
never get to go there, but these
days, this old town, rich in tradition and
beauty, is more accessible than ever for
.the vacationing student looking for new
and exciting travel possibilities.
In response to the budget Laker Air-
ways discount flights to Europe, the
Greyhound bus company has held its
one-way fare to Ypsilanti (directly
from the Michigan Union) to under $2,
affording the prudent spender a whop-
ping discount before the holiday is even
underway.
Once one arrives at the quaintly
small downtown bus station, then the
true advantages begin to manifest
themselves. What a fool you were to
think of wasting a wad on Europe when
something better, yes, better, was right

national centers of Greek revival
residential architecture. Not only that,
but the Historical Museum, jammed to
the doors each summer with tourists
like you, has had several rooms
developed to represent 'a home of the
Victorian period.
M ONUMENTS? Ypsi has 'em. Try
the infanious city water tower,
designated as a National Water Lan-
dmark by the American Waterworks
Association, and if you think Amster-
dam has one, you can guess again.
Perhaps you are one of those insuf-
ferable art buffs? Hanker no more to
grace the portals of the Louvre in Paris
when the Still Art Gallery is only spit-
ting distance from the Sesquicentennial
Hall where you can spend many en-
chanted afternoons.

fascinating institutions of higher lear-
ning: EMU is buttressed by Cleary
College to the south, and Washtenaw
County College to the northwest; you'll
have to be sure to bring your camera
and plenty of film.
What else can you do in Europe? Eat

ridiculous that you thought of spending

Karonias Palace, Casa Nova, and
Perkins Cake and Steak House are all a

down the road! You would have stayed
in grungy youth hostels in the seedy
parts of big cities, sleeping in the same
room with hairy people froni other
countries who don't even speak
your language? Enjoy! Ypsi has
plenty of modestly priced, clean ac-
commodations, and when you turn on
your own private television set, all the
actors are speaking English.
You want historical sights and
museums? Ypsilanti, named, of course
for Demetrius Ypsilanti, hero of the
Greek war for independence, has long
been regarded as one of the inter-

For fast paced excitement, the flea
markets are open every day, a walking
tour of historic Eastern Michigan
University (EMU) isoalmost always in
order, and downtown boasts the Art I
and II Erotica Museum. No cheesy red
light districts here, but a "museum"
calculated to instruct, elevate, and
amuse.
In England there may be Oxford and
Cambridge, but they are miles and
miles apart, and practically impossible
to tour in one day. But in Ypsilan-
