An American at Allenby Crossing - Part 3

As we wait, I watch the tired crowds move from line to line - old men and women, little children releasing pent-up energy and playing tag.  A young woman moves slowly with two hand crutches.  Her legs are uneven.   It is getting late; I can sense that it is dark outside.

An American at Allenby Bridge Crossing - Part 2

Finally, we enter the Israeli border which is graced with a green lawn surrounded by dusty hills (Amazing, what one can do with 80% of the aquifer that sits under the West Bank).  We collect our suitcases and get in line to collect a new luggage tag.  After receiving our tags, we enter an outdoor line where we wait to show our passports so that we can enter the building. Then, we join a new line to go through security and check our luggage.  This room is air conditioned!
