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

Diplomatic pouch. We've sent a few items to Europe via local postal service and the price and speed have been adequate. - Dec 27, 2017
Diplomatic pouch. I'm not sure about local postal facilities. I sent something to Tblisi, Georgia in the local mail once and it was received fine. - Oct 30, 2016
Pouch. - May 18, 2014
I use the U.S. diplomatic pouch. Things from Amazon.com take about 2 weeks to get here, sometime less if we are lucky, and sometimes more during busy times of the year. There is no local mail delivery service, but you can rent a mailbox at the post office for a nominal fee. International mail delivery service from the States takes about 4-6 weeks IF it gets delivered at all. - Feb 2, 2011
Dip pouch. Local mail service is a joke. - Sep 8, 2012
Pouch - takes up to 3 weeks each way. - May 23, 2012
Very slowly, if not through the diplomatic pouch. - Sep 19, 2009
