    An Alphabetical City

    The word, D E G E N E R A T I V E contains six consonants -- D,G,N,R,T and V -- which are in alpha order reading from left to right. Can you name a major city somewhere in the world whose name also has six consonants in alpha order. The name can only have six consonants, and none can be repeated.

    Here's a hint - but don't look so fast. See if you can get it without the hint... <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>I knew you'd look! The answer is the capital of its country.</font color=yellow></span hi>

    Without looking at the hint, I got <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>the capital of Romania: BuCHaReST (in Romanian, it has only five consonants: BuCuReSTi, also in alpha order)</font color=yellow></span hi>
