How to determine direction of river on a topographic map?

There is no compass on the map, I understand that rivers go from high elevation to low, but in what direction? (N. S. W or E type of idea)

Thanks
Edit: could you give me an example? Because the river that is required for me to determine the direction is in a small town, the more appropriate name would be a creek

Tijuana answers:

Look at the contour lines to determine the higher ground to lower elevation. That will determine whether the river flow is N or S or E or W.

The Mississippi River is E of the Continental Divide and runs from N to S to the Gulf of Mexico.

The Potomac River is E of the Continental Divide and runs E to the Atlantic Ocean.

The Columbia River is West of the Continental Divide and runs W to the Pacific Ocean.

The Colorado River is the principal river of the southwestern United States and northwest Mexico. The 1,450-mile (2,330 km) river drains an expansive, arid watershed that encompasses parts of seven U.S. And two Mexican states. Rising in the central Rocky Mountains in the U.S., the river flows generally southwest across the Colorado Plateau before reaching Lake Mead on the Arizona–Nevada line, where it turns south towards the international border. After entering Mexico, the Colorado forms a large delta, emptying into the Gulf of California between Baja California and Sonora.

What is the best Mexico tourist city close to Tx border …coming from Dallas Tx?

I am planning a trip in end of July to Mexico. I would be travelling by road from Dallas TX. What is the closest Mexican tourist spot? Does someone know how much time it takes from Dallas to get to the Mexico border? I have read people recommending Monterrey. How far would it be from Dallas?. Any info is helpful. Thanks.

Tijuana answers:

None of the border towns are good places to visit. Monterrey would be the closest and best choice. See map below. It is about a 9 hr drive. You will need to get a car permit at the border , and Mexican car ins.

Linda asks…

How do I know which bus to take in Mexico City?

I’m in Mexico City and trying to figure out how to get around the city on these green buses. I see them everywhere, and there are signs in the front windows, but they never say exactly where I’m trying to go. I know from talking to others that these buses run the same routes on a regular basis, but no one can explain exactly how they know.

Tijuana answers:

My friend, even for the ones living in Mexico city is hard to understand this chaotic transportation system.
The subway is a better option, in most subway stations you will find a map that shows you the routes.

The “micros” ( Thats the nick name of those buses ) usually shows you on the winshield some points where they are going, but you will need to know if some of this poins is near from where you want to go.
If you speak spanish, then you can be able to ask the driver, but if not, belive me, it´s better to take the subway.

Get in any “Sanborns” a Mexico City’s tourist guide, they are very helpfull.

Wellcome to Mexico Amigo !!
