3rd December The commentary on the Press Photo below says " "At home" in Munich: is Peggy March and she likes everything that is really Bavaria. Being fond of Bavaria, she also visits the well-known Munich "Hofbrauhaus", in order to have there a genuine Bavarian lunch with beer and bretzels (our picture). The blond American has made up her mind to leave the USA and to settle in Old Germany. She has chosen the metropole on the Isar River as the home town of her choice and has her flat in Schwabing, the well-known artist' quarter of Munich."

Moves to Munich, Germany. London was the first location considered in Europe but was ruled out because of potential flight disruptions due to fog. Munich just felt right despite not being the centre of the German music industry (but it was the centre of the German film industry). Peggy and Arnie had a large apartment on Klopstockstraße 1 in Swabing - the artist centre. Peggy buys her first car a Fiat 124 Spyder in white with a black cloth roof. She wanted a sports car - it was broken into in Munich and suffered from a carbon monoxide leak and was Peggy's last Fiat.
