Where's Heather?

Wonder Valley's own artist, Heather Johnson, is riding her motorcycle to the other end of the Americas. She's made it as far as Playa El Cuco, El Salvador. From Heather:

Decompression Day.

Stunning beaches with huge swells. Walled, razor-wired compounds. Lush, uncut jungles. Guys with iguanas on sticks. "No guns" stickers on store windows everywhere. Love hotels. Cows walking freely at 4pm (sharp). And wise, calm, beautiful people who have seen more tragedy than I can comprehend. This has been my El Salvador. 

Tomorrow - Honduras and two border crossings. Today I stare at blue-green waves. — at Playa El Cuco El Salvador.
