Toronto
teems
with'
activity

- By Doug Feltner
On the northwestern shore of Lake
Ontario lies the modern metropolis of
Toronto, a skyscraper and restaurant-
filled jungle, teeming with activity.
Toronto has something for everyone
and facilities to cater to the mildest
bookworm to the wildest reveler.,
For those who feel homesick for an
educational institution during the long
summer holiday, the Ontario Science
Centre and the Art Gallery of Toronto
may serve to quell the longing.
THE SCIENCE center is a vast com-
plex, and most of the exhibits allow for
tourist participation.
Two sights not to miss are the CN

tower and Casa Lomo. The CN tower is
the tallest free-standing structure in the
world. The view from the top is fan-
tastic. The tower features a revolving
restaurant and, for fancy people, the
f world's "highest" disco. Be prepared
for a steep fee.
Casa Loma is a gaudy chateau-type
castle located majestically on a high
hill. A drive around the structure is well
worth the time, but don't bother going
inside-it costs money.
THE NIGHTLIFE IN Toronto isn't
overrated and features a number of
wild bars and pick up spots, some great
topless joints on Yonge Street, and a
massive cinema complex that features
18 separate theaters.
Great restaurants line the streets and
provide limitless culinary adventure.
Frank Vetre's on Carlton Street is
highly recommended for beer and piz-
za.
Shopping is one of the more colorful

Toronto activities. The Eaton Center on
Yonge Street is a huge mall with
clothing, record, food and drink shops.
A massive market and excellent liquol'
store are found in the Center's
basement.
One of the most pleasant things about
Toronto is its cleanliness-those who
visit from Detroit or New York may
have trouble believing just how little
dirt litters the city.
The tidy armosphere extends even to.
the public transportation system, which
is itself one of the most efficient mass
transit systems in the world.
A final warning: Toronto becomes
less and less appealing as winter ap-
proaches. The overall "hum" of the city
seems to die down to a "dilute drone.'.
Be forewarned, however, that the
drinking age in Canada is 18, allied with
a 10 p.m. deadline for over-the-counter
alcohol sales.

interested in experiencing some of the
country's culture opt to live on kibbut-
zim. The self-contained, communal
living area houses a few hundred people
to close to one thousand.
The kibbutz system is based on the
ideology of equality, and all members
are expected to share the work load.
Visitors who stay at the cooperatives
(referred to as volunteers) help the
regular members pick fruits and
vegetables in the fields, milk cows,
cook meals, or do factory work.

Bicycling, movies, and swimming
serve as entertainment for kibbutz
members who, for the most part, stay
within the confines of the kibbutz
grounds.
Most Israelis are intensely proud of
their land and willing to help "lost
Americans" thoroughly see the
beautiful country.
"The land of milk and honey" is the
perfect place to capture the past
without leaving the present-a time
machine of enchantment.
