Words from the participants

I can’t believe our team won! It was great to be able to make friends with fellow Taiwanese.

I enjoyed bowling with a lot of foreigners. I was able to talk with a person I had happened to meet a week ago at ica. I think it’s good that ica has these kinds of events.

It was my first time bowling. The bowling ball was heavier than I had thought.

There is bowling in Nepal, but I’d had never tried it. This is my second time bowling since being in Japan. Bowling with the same group of people, we were able to have a fun time and get along.

There are two kinds of bowling alleys in Aleppo, Syria. One kind of alley has a big cafe, and it’s a bit expensive. However, friends can have cake?or coffee and bowl. You can go bowling after work or study. For junior high school students, it’s open until 10 pm, but for adults it’s open until around midnight. Everyone can have fun because if you’re too tired you don’t have to bowl. You can simply have a cup of coffee. The alleys without cafes, we use for school events, etc.
