    Capital Search

    Hidden in each sentence is a World capital city. The capital will be found as a string of consecutive letters within the sentence. If you are a world traveler, you should not have too much problems finding them. Good Luck!

    1. In December, linen products will be cheaper.
    2. Pour a bath for the dirty child!
    3. Hush! A noise is not allowed here!
    4. Only a partial image is necessary.
    5. I wore a turban as Saudi Arabian law required.
    6. "Drop the anchor", a German captain shouted.
    7. He had the lyric air on the radio many times.
    8. The fossil is bony so it can't be too old.
    9. To increase it's strength a vanadium compound was added.
    10. Joe put Reg in a very tight predicament.
    11. During the wars, a wounded soldier survived.
    12. Remove from us cattle that are ill!

    Spot on Leif, you are correct!

    Sorry if I was mis-leading here. It is a capital city though...I suppose that is what I was after!

    10 and 12 are correct! <img src=/S/trophy.gif border=0 alt=trophy width=15 height=15>

    Capital City? Ha! But I guess you have never been there. Mind you, it is better than <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Saskatoon</span hide>.
