07:20-07:40 Tura-Shaked

Pouring rain. The checkpoint is almost deserted. Very few pedestrians and vehicles cross quickly from one side to the other. A vehicle waits on the other side of the gate to pick them up in this inclement weather.

This is the olive picking season and it pays to arrive earlier, but is apprently today no one went to work.

 

07:50-08:20 Barta'a-Reihan

Here the rain has stopped. The checkpoint is as busy as usual, on both sides. for pedestrians as well as for vehicles.

Two stone benches were added to the sleeveinfo-icon - there is no end to the wonder heres.

People coming out of the terminal tell us that passage today is relatively fast and they didn't have to wait too long. To make things more amusing, today's exit from the terminal is through the turnsile which is not used often . People go straight to the usual turnstile and turn to the other one only after bumping into it and hearing us redirecting them.
