The southeastern Mata Atlantica region of Brazil also has a wet summer, dry winter pattern, but this doesn't mean that the ground is dry in either area. It just means that there is dramatically less rainfall during the winter. It's much cooler, and the sun is lower in the sky with shorter days, so as far as I saw in either location, the ground wasn't dry during the winter. It was nothing like what the ground looks like here in southern California during our rainless summer months.
