06:55 - Rihan-Barta'a checkpoint
About 150 people waiting for the opening of the terminal at the Palestinian car park area.

There is not a single car.

At 07:00 the cry "Hamsa Hamsa" (enter in groups of five) is heard. The security grumpy patient less personnel stands at the entrance. Some women turn to us asking if we could bring them a big tape recorder. We've promised to look into that.

At 07:30 all went through.
Rutie wanted to take a photo of the big dice in the checkpoint park. She is told that it is ok for us to write but not to take pictures.

07:45 - Shaked-Tura checkpoint

Very few people cross. All appears quiet and tranquil. Indeed?

08:15 - We left
