Habla gate #1393

13:50

The gate is open.  On the left stands the commander with a rifle at the ready.  It is very hot.  Four people are in the queue.  A fifth joins them and then they all cross.

14:35

We went into a poorly stocked grocery shop in Kosin.  On the floor is a mattress which is, apparently, used by the owners.  According to them the army patrols the town during the night.
