Blood Alley – Intersects with God Street. Curry Gardens sits on one of the corners of said intersection. Yes, it’s repetitious but only if you read the other one first.

Bay of Mante – Site of a famous shipwreck. Possibly.

Klatch – Land of deserts and some jungles. Also the source of the phrase, “Pardon my Klatchian.” The country of Klatch is on the continent of Klatch.

Shades, The – A section of Ankh-Morpork that is darker (in more ways than one) than it sounds.

Forbidden City of Ee – Miraculously preserves the first pizza created on the Disc. We’re not sure why. May be related to the Lost City of Ee.

Hakrull River – In Krull, on which Terpsic Mims and Death fished one day.
