tub/shower with window

I have tiled the walls of my shower/tub combo. The 5ft wall has a sunken window on it. I am putting bullnose tile on the inside edge of the window frame sill area. The edge where the flat tile (bullnose with tilt for runoff) meets the wall tile. This is a change of plane, so do I caulk or grout?

Id treat that same as a turning a corner on a wall and grout that joint.

The proper technique is to caulk that joint but most people, myself included, will grout the outside corners. Silicone just stands out too much on those.
