Skinned goats, phantom love and the providence of prostitutes By Joe Bageant
A fellow expatriate told me recently when I left Belize, Central America, which I now consider my home: “America is a sticky place, Joe, hard to get out of again, even from a short visit. The everyday money and business stuff alone will trap you like fucking flypaper.” And that keeps ringing in my head during this current return to sell my house and fulfill my promotional obligations for the book I just published here. Which could take months.
