Florianopolis

Florianopolis, what a nice sounding name, I must confess to wanting to go there if only on account of the name.  It is the capital city of the state of Santa Catarina in southern Brasil.  Santa Catarina is a 52km island connected to the Brasilian mainland by the Hercilio Luz bridge.

I have another reason for wanting to go there but more about him and figs later.
