In Kabul, young Afghans bowl at The Strikers, Afghanistan’s only bowling alley. Strikers, Afghanistan’s only bowling alley, opened last fall in Kabul. People took to it quickly, and it is mobbed on weekends. Though Strikers’ opening last fall was the country’s introduction to bowling, most of the bowlers now are Afghans, not expatriates. Strikers was started by an Afghan, not a foreigner. It was built with Afghan money, not funneled-off international aid.
