Hi Mike

Alice beat me to it with those refs. The 1998 Wassmann & Dasen paper contains a detailed account including mapping of directional axes at the eastern tip of Bali, which does cause various reocnfigurations of the system you described.

In South Bali, north and south are kaja and kelod respectively; on the north (Denpasar for example) of the island (Singaraja for example) it is the opposite; east and west however are the same (sunrise and sunset don't change directions based on whether one is on the north or south of the central peak(s).
I have never spent enough time in the eats or west ends of the island to know what their system is (since applying the standard Balinese system would make, for example, Kaja (mountainward) ALSO the direction of sunset.
