This crossing point is actually going from one country to another yet without leaving the city. As with normal borders there are two passport controls. There was a queue both sides when we crossed and it took about 20 minutes to go each way. Don't...More

It's a border crossing. You stand in line, usually in the baking hot sun for someone to grumpily look at your passport. There is a green zone with disused buildings right in the heart of the city. It's all very sad to be honest. Don't...More
