A backlit decoration behind the counter of a bar in Bangkok, Thailand.

Bangkok, Thailand. Wasn't that the venue for a fictional World Chess Championship?

A 1984 planetary hit started like this:-

Bangkok, Oriental setting
And the city don't know that the city is getting
The creme de la creme of the chess world
In a show with everything but Yul Brynner

The song's chorus started like this:-

One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster
The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free

With 336 views and 25 faves, the photo has something going for it. Cheers!
