I am on a reread of the series and I remember a small detail which bothered me the first time through. At the end of tBH Cutter, Spite, Pust, and the rest are heading out on a boat toward Genabakis then suddenly in TTH they are pulling up to a dock in Darujhistan. Isn't Darujhistan landlocked? I know there is an inland sea Darujhistan is located on but every map I see does not show a river connecting it to the coast? Or is the answer simply to go with it and realize the unspoken answer is "by warren, stupid".

This isn't the first time it's been implied that Lake Azur has some passage to the sea.

Chapter 7 of Gardens of the Moon has this bit describing the Darujhistan waterfront:

Quote

Ahead and below glittered the Lakefront, the merchant trader ships from distant Callows, Elingarth, and Kepler's Spite hunched dark and gloaming between gaslit stone piers.


And this part from the Epilogue showing Kalam, Fiddler, and Crokus leaving Darujhistan for Seven Cities seems to indicate there is a river to the sea on the western shore of the lake near Dhavran.

Quote

The tradecraft hugged the southern shore, making for Dhavran and the river mouth.


Maybe that river south of Mengal on the Genabackis map needs to be extended to Dhavran.
