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

Diplomatic pouch only so no liquids above 16 ounces and some other restrictions. But Amazon will take 2 weeks or so after arrival to your pouch address not bad. - Sep 3, 2017
We used the pouch but the peace corps volunteers receive mail and packages through the Sierra Leone mail system. Most things arrive, some don't. All are delivered to the main post office in town and they have to be picked up from there. - Sep 9, 2014
