A Travellerspoint blog



Some of us went ten-pin bowling at San Marino shopping centre after work this evening; it was the leaving do of one of my colleagues, but I would have been really keen to go even if it hadn't because I love bowling and hadn't been bowling in any country apart from the UK before. To be honest there wasn't much difference between the bowling experience here and in the UK, apart from the TV screens between the scoring screens that showed highlights of Copa Libertadores football matches. There was a lack of large bowling balls for the European men of the party, too.

I had a good time and this continued to where we went next, a Lebanese shawarma restaurant in Urdesa. Guayaquil isn't known for its range of international eating options, but it does have several Middle Eastern shawarma places, mostly concentrated on a particular stretch of road (Guayacanes) in Urdesa. I had a 'shawarma combo' for $4.50 - a chicken shawarma wrap, a 'kippe' (a fried object with beef or lamb mince, herbs and what I think was potato in the middle and breadcrumbs on the outside) and a bottle of Coke. The wrap was very wide and contained lettuce and cucumber as well as herbs and still-hot meat. We were given complementary bowls of white yoghurt with our food so I put some in my wrap - delicious. The kippe was nice too, if more fattening. Definitely a place I will return to!
