Otto occasionally is described as standing under a sunshade.
Ankh-Morpork also has a lot of fog, mist, and general air pollution, being an early industrial city. Possibly the trolls and vampires don't need to use much protection in a city where you can only tell it's spring because the birds are coughing in rhythm and the slime on the river is a brighter shade of green.

Upon my oath, I am not a nit-picking man! :) But I did love this book despite some negativity in the earlier posts in this thread by some people. I finished reading it 3 days ago, loved the way I felt I had to second-guess all the recriuts right up to the point where you actuall discover they are female! Where I was concerned, I was almost certain Leutenant Blouse was gonna turn out to be a woman (my opinion was swayed by his "washerwoman disguise", I thought for sure then he was going to be revealed as a woman then, also when it was revealed he couldnt actually shave himself). Jackrum was my favourite character in this book, and I was very is-he-isnt-he a woman right up to the revalation too, the vision I had of him / her in my head was just too manly to be a woman I thought, so I was very suprised, Upon my oath!! :lol: :lol: I love his saying / catch phrase :lol:
Also I am an abomonation unto Nuggan, for I have red hair!! :o :oops:

Definitely one of my favourites - although I wasn't sure to begin with. :)
