If you are facing the sunrise where is south

To your right. That is correct, but how did you reason that out? Think of the compass. If you stand facing north, then east would be on your right and west would be on your left and you would be facing away from south. So, turn east toward the rising sun, now south is on your right, north is to your left and you are facing away from west. Same works for the setting sun (in the west). Face the setting sun, now north is on your right. Sounds complicated. The way I remember it is to put my right hand toward the rising sun. That way I am facing north--every time. Check it out with a compass.
