    Just checked and apparently they do sometimes weigh on check in. Even if you wear suit wear a jacket or overcoat with big pockets.. YouCAN doit jeffmac! Fast dry underwear and socks (wear one carry one) and a couple of shirts. Kind of clothes you need to wear might make the difference.

    Is this 'business casual', or are you wearing a summer suit on the plane (because if you wear it, they can't weigh it...)?

    Trip to Brazil- PANIC!

    OK, I need somebody to talk me off of the ledge here. I am going on a quick business trip to Brazil next week and I am having a bit of a light travel panic attack.

    Leave on a Monday, fly overnight, business Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. Overnight back Friday night and collapse in a heap at home Saturday afternoon.

    Here is the hassle, I am flying on TAM Airlines and they have a 5KG bag weight limit! I can take one carry on and a "personal item" and I have to carry a piece of electronic equipment that weighs about 2KG on the plane to demo. I have to have a computer as well (MBPro 13) so that will tie up most of the weight in my personal carry.

    So, here is where I need some encouragement. Can I pull off a 5 day trip on 3KG of weight?

    I am willing to limit myself to one pair of shoes, but I am open to any great ideas on weight and packing management and could really use a "You can do this Jeff" from the choir here...

    Also, any great restaurant recommendations? Sao Paulo mostly but one brief day in Rio...
