Israel's gone onto Summer Time now. So we're one step closer to summer, yay! This is the Clock Tower in Jaffa. The Clock Tower was donated by the residents of Jaffa and the villages of Judea to mark the 25th anniversary of the reign (31 August 1878 to 27 April 1909) of Sultan Abdulhamid II. The cornerstone was laid on 1 September 1900 and construction was completed in 1902 or 1903. Have a good weekend everyone!
