Sorry, Adrian, wrong continent.
That was Caz's first thought after the clue.
There's part of the riddle that can take you straight to the place without solving all of it. BUT which part? :lol:

Just guessing, Adrian, but are you sure, do you think it might be a country further to the sun rise than your's?

I'll put the answer on later tonight, but one last clue

If you've found the source of local knowledge you hav'nt got to scan far on google earth to find the place, the riddle tells you in which direction Although you can see the place you may not see the LINES

I was going to leave it till later, but i'm going to watch last 2 episodes of LOST, so here it is

In this faraway dark place lies the source of our local knowledge
Africa is known as "the dark continent" and in there is a country called CHAD.

from there the sun rises
the sun rises in the east, so east of Chad

on two new lines, one white and one blue
new is crossword teminology for an anagram of (usually) the next word, so anagram of LINES is NILES so you now have "The White Nile" and "The Blue Nile"


these merge into a different line
again, "different" means an anagram of the next word, LINE, so again you have NILE. The White and Blue Niles merge into a single river just called "The Nile"

it is at this point the General drinks his gin
Where the two niles merge is a city were General Gordon (Gordons Gin) lost his life defending against the Muslem people,

That city is KHARTOUM
