    Default first post in 9 years!

    Dear DR1,

    Hi I am a 9 year veteran of reading dr1 and have been privileged
    to learn so much about the DR and the day to day life experiences.

    I felt it was time to add my experiences
    and engage others in the interestuing topics discussed on this great message forum!

    I have lived both in DR and Colombia and have a wealth of life experiences living in the citioes of Medellin and
    SD. These two cities are very, very different both with positives & negatives.


    In my first post, i would like to have fun and have fellow DR1 posters ask me the difference between living in Colombia vs DR and the differences in the people.. Im waiting to give my opinions!

    I wish Robert the best of luck in his new Colombian board.

    Welcome and let's have at it. So what is the difference between the DR and Columbia?

    I assume you mean the difference between Santo Domingo and a city where you live in the country of Columbia.

    I would personally be more interested in knowing the difference between NOT living in a city in Columbia versus not living in a city in the DR. Suburbs are fine.

    Medellin versus SD would be a good start!

    I am very interested in Medellin. What can you tell me about it? How do you get there--which airport is closest? Thanks.

    Egg on my face regarding Columbia/Colombia. etc..
    I don't expect I will ever visit there, but it will be good to hear about it form an experienced resident.
