That evening, an Falvy Family Conference was held on the back patio at our home in Domme. By a vote of 2.5 to 0, the conclave officially ratified the decision our readers may have already suspected: We would stay in Europe at the end of our vacation and accept the posting in Munich.
What swayed our decision? Was it Dean's fanatical devotion to his employer? Was it Lisa's determination to learn German? Was it Miles' apparent aversion to transatlantic flights?
Or was it the wine? Or the cheese? Or the sunset over the Dordogne that particular night?
Once again, we report. You decide.
