Check your weapons and cigarettes at the security, and head inside the black-steel door which leads you to Afghanistan’s first-ever bowling alley.The institution, located in Kabul, is a rare setting for the locals to have some pure fun, according to The New York Times’ Rod Nordland.
There is no alcohol served. The 12-lane business, called “Strikers,” hosts after-work social events for businessmen.
Strikers opened last year, but teaching a group of people how to bowl takes some time. It’s only now that the regulars are achieving respectable scores close to 200, Nordland writes. At $35 an hour, it’s not cheap, either.
Afghanistan is now the 91st country in the world to have a modern bowling alley.
