We wait for the gate to be opened. The soldier telephones the battalion commander to get authorization for opening the gate.
Shift change. Very few vehicles. They pass without inspection.
There are no queues in either direction. The cars don’t come to a full stop despite the addition of a red fluorescent cord across the width of the road beside the big STOP sign in English.
A very hot day.
