Photographer's Note

This photo shows the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur.

We visited the towers, during an 8-hour layover, on the way to London last year.

The steel skybridge connects the two towers on the 41st and 42nd floors.

It is the highest 2-story bridge in the world.

It is not attached to the main structure, but is instead designed to slide in and out of the towers to prevent it from breaking during high winds.

The bridge is 170 m (558 ft) above the ground and 58 m (190 ft) long, weighing 750 tons.

My son's Top Trumps skyscrapers card also says that the towers have 88 floors, 78 elevators and 32,000 windows!
