Morning

 

 

 

 

 
 
 
 
In general: Few crossing, exam recess in schools, some of the Christian denominations on holiday.
 
 
Sheikh Saed
 
Only a few very young pupils crossing without special problems.
One of the secuirty staff shouts at a driver not to park up the hill but to move on another 50 m.  This driver, it turns out, is there in an official capacity, he's the parking attendant.
 
 
Zeitim Terminal
 
Here too we found few people, and crossing was quick.
 
 
Wadi Nar
 
A truck loaded with a tractor was being detained when we arrived.  The passengers were having a long dsicussion with the border policeman.  We were unable to understand the reason for the delay during the time of our stay.  All the other vehicles crossed without interference.
