I'm planning a little trip to Rio and to Buenos Aires. I will be in Rio for carneval, and then onto Argentina. Any suggestions on good places to see and eat - especially in BA, since I will be there the longest - would be appreciated. Also, anything specific I should look into getting while there. Any good local brands or craftsmen to pick some interesting things up from?

Most watches in fact DO use movements from the same manufacturer - ETA.

I picked up a nudie plain belt for $77 in Stockholm. 1-1/8" wide, I believe, and a very simple buckle. Edit: Here it is, they charge a premium in the US though...

Picked up a pair of Epaulet smiths a while back. They fit great everywhere except the waist, where they are just SLIGHTLY too tight. Can I expect them to expand in the waist, or not really?

On a positive note, I was slightly overweight beforehand, and came out of the ordeal...
I went through the same thing a few years ago - I got all my recommenders a book pertaining to the subject with a personal connection to me (as well as a handwritten note on the inside of the book).
Not sure if this one has been posted yet - black UK7.5 Lowndes with one bid of $200:
I like this a lot!
