The place looks empty but opposite, on the other side of the road is a "campsite" with a sign "PIZZA" written on it.  We see kids, tents and food containers scattered around.

Both main entrances to Ramin (above checkpost) are blocked.  The only entrance is via the checkpost and a very circuitous route.
The checkpost itself is quiet and very little traffic.We have a friendly discussion with the soldiers and leave at 09.50

The junction is quiet with very little traffic.  As usual, it is extremely hot.  A friendly talk with 2 of the reserve soldiers develops and they are curious to learn about the organization.
