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 Peru.

From Heather:
Peru. It hasn't been kind, exactly. I've been ripped off, others I know have been ripped off, a dear friend's motorcycle has been unjustly confiscated, and I may have some infectious parasite that's liquefying my poop. 
That said - this kind of @#$! keeps me from wanting to return home. I've relied on Planned Parenthood for basic care for a good chunk of my adult life, during all those many-numbered artist-with-crappy-day-job moments when I lacked health insurance. I am not looking forward to facing the stupidity and short-sightedness in our political system and culture that allows something like this to happen. Sigh... America...
