The bottom line is this; rivers flow down. They flow from a point of higher elevation to a point of lower elevation, driven by gravity. While we are used to many rivers flowing from north to south, this has nothing to do with the hemisphere or compass. I copy and pasted the following from Wikipedia. "A common misconception is that most, or even all, rivers flow from north to south.] Rivers in fact flow downhill regardless of compass direction. Sometimes downhill is from north to south, but equally it can be from south to north, and usually is a complex meandering path involving all directions of the compass. Three of the ten longest rivers in the world-the Nile, Yenisei, and Ob-flow north, as do other major rivers such as the Rhine, Mackenzie, and Nelson." See the link below for more information
