'Anabta, Habla, Irtah (Sha'ar Efrayim), Ras 'Atiya, Wed 26.5.10, Afternoon
11:45 Gate 1392, Habla Agricultural Gate
We arrive to find the gate
closed, waited awhile, but still no one arrives to open it. We stop
by the nursery to inquire and find out that the army has changed the
hours to accommodate the Bedouin children who return from school on
the bus only at 12:30.
Vehicles lined up from both sides, moving slowly, a
back up of about 7 vehicles at both sides.
15:15 Sha'ar Efraim
A constant flow of people returning home, but no
lines or waiting, although only 2 booths are open, several
Palestinians tell us we should have been there in the morning.
