High & Abroad on my Birthday: The Petronas Twin Towers

Your author on the bridge We spent close to twenty minutes up high, looking at the hills in the distance and the city below. It was a pretty amazing experience, especially considering I had never been so high in a man-made tower, let alone the tallest building in the world from 1998 to 2004.


Tropical Metropolis

We took the bus from the AirAsia "discount" airport to KL Central Station, and then took the above-ground metro to our hostel, the Reggae Mansion. We settled in at the rooftop bar with a few beers, and, for the only time during our entire stay, some reggae music. The clouds broke and we admired the Kuala Lumpur Tower as rain splattered around and Bob Marley skipped on the speakers.
