The Rat That Got Away

This chapter describes the new life for Allen Jones and Connie Boyer in Luxembourg. Connie and Jones found Luxembourg's culture to be different from France's, and they liked it. In more ways than one, they felt right at home. They also were glad to discover that Luxembourgers spoke English. With a population of only 400,000 people and the farm-based economy shifting toward business, good relations with other nations were essential. To help ensure this, the people learned four languages: Luxembourgish, French, German, and English. Playing and coaching with Amicale Steinsel was very different from playing and coaching in France. Most of the players on the team were amateurs; only the coach and the one American player got paid. The team had come in fifth out of twelve teams the year before in the Federation of Luxembourg Basketball, and his job was to take them to a championship.
