Multinational one purchase

I ordered volume 1 of the French graphic novel adaptation of Bujold's The Warrior's Apprentice from Amazon UK, it not being available from Amazon US, and reports on Amazon CA over on the Bujold list indicating delayed shipping. (No, I have no French, but, hey, I know the story well...and am a Bujold fanatic.)

Today the shipping notice arrived via email: items (Sold by Amazon EU S.a.r.L.):

1 La saga Vorkosigan, Tome 1... £10.65

Shipped via Deutsche Post DHL (estimated arrival date: March 10, 2010).

So, is it being shipped from Germany, or is Deutsche Post DHL doing business in the UK? Or perhaps in France--maybe Amazon UK is ordering from the French publisher and having them ship directly to the customer.

In any case, I found the dispatch of a French publication, by a firm in England, via a German shipper....amusing. And neat.
