How do you send and receive your letters and package mail? Are local postal facilities adequate?

Bulgaria Post is cheap, but they take forever. DHL and TNT are good options, but they are expensive (about 80 bucks to send a document envelope to the U.S.). - Jun 3, 2011
I have access to the US Embassy mail so it's very convenient. - Oct 30, 2009
All the major courier companies are here (DHL, FEDEX, UPS, TNT) although they are expensive. Bulgaria Post is less expensive but it is SLOW. - Feb 9, 2008
