Driving and helping:

 

07:50 Bethlehem Checkpoint

Closureinfo-icon because of Rosh Hashana, and quiet because of Eid el-Fitr. Outside, one car waiting. Inside, one position open and a soldier sleeping. He is awakened by an older man, church worker, who passes quickly.

 

08:10 El Nashash

Few cars, no pedestrians.

 

08:30 DCO Etzion

DCO closed. Two youngsters arrive, apparently not knowing that it will be closed. They complain to us, then return whence they came.

 

09:00 Nebi Yunes

Because of the holiday, little traffic. The fruit stalls, that were closed during Ramadan, have opened. We visited a family of old friends and brought them a present for the festival. We enjoyed the traditional hospitality.

 

Beit Omer

The grocery store iis open. Its owner has returned from her pilgrimage to Mecca, and looks happy.
