Petronas Towers, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Malaysia, 1998

The Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Entrapment, this time, and this was taken from the Skybridge on the 42nd Floor. We did get to the top of the towers which is truly stupendous, but for the life of me I can't find the pictures. Shame.

Interesting story: As we were climbing up a concrete stairwell that led to the hangar where the window-cleaning gondola was stored right on the very top of the towers, we came across an odd bulge in the wall that we had to manouvere our way around. Our guide explained that it was, as far as they could figure, an error on the CAD design programme that was used to create the plans. Then again, he might just have been pulling our legs.
