7:00 Shaked checkpoint
Gates are open, but we're inside a surreal mute photo. About 20 people stand quietly by the carousel, 2 soldiers sit idle inside the shed, an herd of sheep couching by the gate, the only thing that makes a sound id the generator.
7:10– A motion begin, The donkey and the herd are inspected and go through. Workers still wait.
7:15– The first worker gets out to the Seam Line zone. It turns out that today the computer 'refused' to work.
