MykReeve posted a photo:

The courtyard of the Mohammed Ali mosque in the Citadel in Cairo. In the centre of the courtyard is this ablutions fountain, beyond which you can see a clock tower shrouded in scaffolding. The ornate clock in the clock tower was a gift from King Louis-Philippe of France, in exchange for the obelisk that stands in Paris’s Place de la Concorde.
this is so true
