7:00 Sheikh Saed
 
Crossing without difficulties.  In the parking lot beyond the checkpoint, lively traffic of vehicles and young people.
 
Silwan
 
The dig has been covered, but there's no sign of laying pipes elsewhere.
 
Garbage galore; but surprisingly a green municipal truck appears, rinses the edge of the road, and someone sweeps alongside.
We call the municipality with respect to the garbage, promises are given to collect and provide dumpsters.
 
Olive Terminal
 
Preparations for the wall are advancing, the infrastructure is visible.  One of the workers says the wall will be built up to the checkpoint and there will be a detour road connecting Ramallah and Hebron.
 
Cliff Hotel
 
  The soldiers' explain that the wall will extend beyond the hotel because of a High Court ruling, and we  will leave the place. We told them how beautiful the place had been in the past.   They believed that the building had been under construction.
