Sorry, I have more travel photos this week.
I was fascinated with Kuala Lumpur's Petronas Towers after seeing it in the 1999 movie Entrapment. In 2002, my dream came true when I had a chance to travel to Malaysia's capital of Kuala Lumpur and take a tour of the Towers' Skybridge. I arrived to the city at night and saw the Towers lit up from my hotel window. It was a breathtaking sight and I couldn't believe I travled halfway around the world to see it.
At that time, it was the tallest buildings in the world. I had to lie on the ground so I could capture the whole building with my camera.
Even after more than a year following Sept. 11th, I felt anxious visiting such a tall structure. Soldiers with machine guns were still seen patroling its interior. Tourists were allowed to take the elevator to the building's Skybridge which link the 2 Towers together on the 42nd floor. We were allowed to stay up there for a maximum of 15 minutes before we were ushered into the elevator to make room for the next group of tourists.
