Not sure exactly what it means, but the two people who have run expat/retirement web sites on Northern Belize have left or are leaving Belize.
Margaret Briggs, who ran (and still runs) wwww.localgringos.com, recently sold her house in Corozal Town and moved to New Mexico. A while back, she was the victim of a home invasion in Coro and often spoke and wrote about increased crime and other problems for expat residents of Corozal. Margaret worked as an archeologist in Belize and had lived in the country for a number of years. I believe she had QRP status, but possibly it was permanent residency.
Rick Zahniser, who operates the www.belizenorth.com
web site, is leaving Belize in early October, moving to Arkansas. A couple of weeks ago, his house in Coro was burglarized while he was asleep, and his computer, musical instruments and other valuables taken, and he says he has had an unsettling experience with the local police after reporting the crime. Rick moved to Belize I believe in 1999, or around that time, had his permanent residency, and after a short spell in Colorado a while back had moved back to Coro about a year ago.
I imagine there are a variety of reasons, including personal or family issues, for the departures.
Both web sites are excellent and are a great window on expat and QRP life in Belize. Sorry to see them leave.
