No global village for Adobe?

As a fan of Adobe Lightroom I was very pleased to see version 2 released and planned to buy an upgrade right away.  I went to the Adobe store, only to find out that I have to pay US $129 to buy the upgrade from the South African store while it costs only US $99 from the US store, but I can’t buy there.  That’s crazy; I want the download version not the box version so it’s not a question of shipping or higher logistics costs.  In fact I will probably end up downloading from the very same site that US customers will.

So why the price difference?  And where’s this global village I keep hearing about?
