it's so rainy that very few passengers are out there. at Abu-Dis the border police are patroling from inside the jeep, surprised to see us on such weather, and don't bother to check every single person. there are cars going for both directions at a-ram and Qalandya, but again very few walking passengers. it seems that even some coloured IDs are treated less strictly today. all in all, very quiet and very wet.
