Reihan Checkpoint
07:00 –
“Good morning.  Crossing will now begin.” 
There are very few people and they cross quickly.

07:05 – The first people begin to come out.  There are two windows operating in the terminal and the clerks are men.  Later we try to assess the relaxed mood of the people coming out of the terminal. 
People smile and tell us, “Things are going quickly today.”  “Things are good today.”  From the entrance we hear the usual rebuking voice calling, “Sakker el baab!” (Close the gate!)

The gardening and sham continue in this place.  The bucket above the well has been changed to a blue plastic container.  We saw a new shooting position next to the bus stop located on the road (to the east) next to the vehicle inspection facility. 
16 vans are waiting for passengers to the seamline zone.

Shaked Checkpoint
It is quiet and empty.  There are concrete blocks in the middle of the road.  Are they new?

We left at 08:40.
