6:45 Olive Terminal
 
Very quiet, no lines, very few children.  The third lane is empty.
 
A young  labourer who was caught jumping over the fence asked for our assistance.  His ID was confiscated.  We didn't have much success.
 
Anata 7:40 
A routine day. 
In the transportation lot, the logistics of guiding the children through work well.  The little ones are on holiday until 17.4.  For high schools, it's exam time, with a holiday thereafter.
 
We counted 4 turnstiles in the pedestrian tracks, and an additional small one.  For some of these there seemed to be no logical use.  It seems that somewhere there are plenty of financial resources for fancy checkpoint architecture. 
 
Here too, few were crossing, and there were no lines.  Three tracks for vehicles were operating, one for public transportation.  Inspection was routine, and mostly fast.
