So far, you're the only respondent (thanks for that), so it's too soon to drop hints on a hint-sensitive subject. After 10 wrong guesses by atleast 5 individuals, or 100 views, or 30 days, whichever happens first, I will post the first clue.
At 101 views I hereby submit the first (and last?) hint that will probably giveaway the answer: Rhymes with Panama.
At this point, I'm convinced that if anyone can solve the puzzle, he (or she) has declined to do so. Therefore, I'm gonna put this baby out of it's misery now. The one hint I dropped was "rhymes with Panama." The name of the city is Manama, capital of Bahrain.
