NOTE:  When ordering from Les Chemins du Baroque, know that the web site is in French, with the English option being under construction.  If you are ordering from the USA, in the "PAYS" window you will select "Etats-Unis d'Amerique".  Paying by VISA or Master Card you will select the "Par CARTE Bancaire" option.  Your $US will be converted through the VISA/Master Card  transaction - isn't the technology great!  EURO dollars are valued just slightly less than US dollars ($1 EURO equals about $0.9 US - this changes minutely daily), so your $ US cost total will be just slightly less than the displayed $ EURO amount.  There are approximately 6.56 French Francs to a $1 EURO.  Some language helps for the "linguistically challenged":  Prenom = first name, Nom = last name, No = address number, Rue = street name, Code postal = zip code, Ville = city, state USA, ...other words will be contextually understandable.
