0730 -0800 Shaked-Tura checkpoint 
When we arrived the herd of sheep came down toward us - apparently we were late by a few minutes.

Heavy traffic to both directions: There is a big wedding today in Daher-el-Malec (the village close to the checkpoint, on the side of the SeamLine zone) many people are coming or leaving. We spoke with some of those waiting for their peers or for transportation. According to them passage today is relatively swift.

What would you say about the flotilla? no one wants to say anything, they appear pleasant and courteous but also tired of the situation. A soldier came over asking us in a polite manner how we're doing and whether we had observed any problem today.

08:10 - 08:45 Rihan-Barta'a checkpoint 
Heavy traffic on both sides of the gate but streams along without delays. People report of passage of a only a few minutes.
The Cypress trees at the checkpoint are already very tall..
