Bethlehem (300), Sun 19.5.13, Morning
Translation: Yael Bassis-Student
On the road I watch a stream of workers, buses cabs etc.
People report that today was "ok", and "The entire month was ok".
There are hardly any people inside the terminal. Within a few minutes a new group arrives. Like at every other rime, passage is done in groups rather than a constant stream .
Passage is swift and there are no jams. Here and there might be a problem with finger prints or a certain document. In the end all go through.
07:15 Three windows are open.
07:25 The hall is vacant. Two windows closes down.
07:35 A new, large group arrives when only one window is operational. I say something and the military police officer says :"I'm going in right away to let people through", a second window opens and passage runs quickly.
07:45 All had gone through, one window remains open.
End of morning service at checkpoint 300.
