Argh, I missed a day. Oh well. Today's answer is, of course, Khartoum.

Khartoum, Sudan.

I should have gone with my first reaction on the question about Machu Picchu because Inca was correct, but I wasn't confident enough.

Khartoum, Sudan?

Khartoum, Sudan. And the only reason that city exists is because the White and Blue Niles merge there. Otherwise, it's just another spot in the eastern Sahara desert.
