    To Tdol!
    The best hinges are sold in Moscow. If you ever need another hinge buy a tour to Moscow.

    Basically, a hinge is a hinge. I don't think I'll travel to Brazil or Moscow to find one.

    What would you travel to Brazil or to Moscow for? Vacations? Business?

    Both. I've never been to either place. The closest I've come to Brazil is Aruba. The closest I've come to Moscow is the Ukraine.
