    Default What happened to Colin Robinson

    Poster on DR1 had just moved to Cabarete. Made a few humorous posts. Last post was in June searching for morphine for his wife. Since then, nada. New screen name or simply gone from DR1 or from DR?

    Colin and I became good friends while he and his wife were here, but they never moved here. They were only visiting, although their were considering making a move.

    We watched several World Cup games together, and we had a great time out on the town, and at Whirlybird's and Charlie's place in the campo. Unfortunately, they went back to England without making a firm decision about a move here. I am keeping my fingers crossed, but I am not sure if or when they will return.

    He and his wife are good people, and I will miss our exchange of ideas and barbs.

    Ok. One of his threads was titled "Emmigrating to the dominican republic". Didn't realize it was a work of fiction.

    Colin & Tina were here to look at property and investigate all aspects of moving to a new country with the intention of moving here to live in January of next year.
    I second Catcher's comments, very nice people!

    A thorough search of Colin's questions and comments would imply that, unlike many others who do choose to immigrate to the DR without doing their due diligence and researching totally what life will be like in this 'paradise' with all its advantages and disadvantages, he came with his 'other half' and spent some time living as a resident.

    They, as a couple, did not stay in an AI as tourists who never really get to see the real DR nor did they just 'pop out' to view possible properties to purchase but they made it their task to make friends with locals, both ex-pat and Dominican and truly research whether the DR is the place for them to live when they 'up sticks' and choose somewhere to settle for their retirement.

    Despite the title of the thread previously mentioned, I don't think the idea of 'fiction' comes into Colin's thinking - everything he does and says is very much for 'real' in our experience with him and his charming wife.

    I completely agree with Whirleybird. I certainly wouldn't call taking a look at a potential place to live a work of fiction, by any stretch.

    I might call their search a work in progress, but hardly a work of fiction. In addition, I do not understand the reason for using such a characterization. I do not recall Colin or Tina making any announcement that they were planning any immediate move here, nor do I recall them making any other promises of any kind to anyone.

    I hope that Colin and Tina do decide to move here, but it is no one's business but theirs and theirs alone,. Referring to their visit as a work of fiction is more than just a little over the top, in my opinion.

    Reading his posts, I also thought he was settling down in the DR (Not contemplating the move)
    Too bad, cause he was very entertaining.

    Who cares, it's the freaking internet, maybe he got kidnapped to Boca Chica and is eating pulpo on his front porch reading this valuable thread.

    What ever happened to Jrzyguy and his seafood salad stories or Laurapasani and his Moca Mami?

    People moooooove on.

    Are we sure he hasn't been censored? Could be in the penalty box for posting fallacious intentions
