Bethlehem (300), Etzion DCL, Sun 29.1.12, Afternoon
Etzion DCL, 15:30 pm: no one is waiting in the waiting hall and the soldier girl behind the window is cooperative, telling us that it was quiet all day, only some 30 people since morning and at this moment there are 3 people inside. As we turn to leave, a couple and a man arrive and are let in immediately.
Bethlehem Checkpoint 300, 16:15 pm: it takes the workers less than a minute to get to the other side. We go to an observation spot of the vehicle Checkpoint but, contrary to reports, there seem to be no unusual checking procedures.
