Good deal!

Brazil is also one of the biggest backers of Java (Brazilians go to
JavaOne regularly).

The Brazilian National Health Care system has been called the largest
Java EE application ever built - yes, even bigger than eBay ;-)

Brazil has the fourth largest number of Java developers in the world
after the United States, India, and the entirety of Europe. This is an
impressive number that helps to make up the estimated 4.5 million Java
developers worldwide. In fact, Brazil has the only Java User Group (JU)
that is a member of the Java Community Process (JCP).

To round it out, Brazil is home to more leafcutter ant species than
anywhere else...

I cannot wait to go to Brazil, probably next year....
