Morning
7:00  Sheikh Saed. A few children going to school.  3-4 adults with blue ID cards  and nothing else crossing.  The new  construction  makes it even less accessible  to come through.  We keep wondering about the fact that the Supreme Court has not made a decision  about the fate of this little neighbourhood,  that seems so cut off and lost. A very nice Druz  B.P. soldier  shares his genuine  pain about these people with us .  It is heart warming.
 
Abu Dis The usual two bored soldiers who do not answer our greetings,  and one man who is on the list  are all we meet.
 
Ras Abu Sbitan (Olive Terminal). Hardly anyone around at  about 08:00.  We are told by the few drivers there that we have to come at 06:00 to see the true traffic at this terminal.  So we decided to go earlier  next time.
 
Wadi Nar .A few cars going south are waiting in line.  Many more about  20-24  are waiting to go  north.  As soon as we arrive  a lieutenant  who is there as well as two B.P.  start  releasing the traffic and in five minutes  the area is clear. 
A very  regular shift.
