so what time is it anyway??

So the Swiss are also known for their clocks. and watches. and precision. and punctuality. But apparently something went terribly wrong today. If you click to enlarge the picture, you'll notice that the two clock towers are showing different times. The tower on the left is part of the Fraumünster Church, which is also home to a series of stained glass windows designed by Marc Chagall. The one on the right is St. Peterskirche, and at 9 meters in diameter, its clock face is the largest one in Europe. For the record, St. Peterskirche was showing the correct time and Fraumünster was off.
