At the Post Office

One typically finds a main post office centrally located in each city, with one or two smaller branches located in each suburb. There is usually one post office per village.
Since there are no mailboxes, nor personalized delivery, one must pick up the mail at the post office. Ghanaian post offices are set up so that one can pay utility bills at various booths, as well as buy stamps, purchase money orders and take care of all other mail-related functions. It is understood that valuables, even as incidental as compact discs, should never be sent through the mail.
