P.O. Boxes



To many of us, a P.O. Box (post office box) is an optional way of receiving mails. We rent it from the post office if - for some reasons - we don't want our mails to be deliverd to our door step. But I was surprised to learn that in some countries, particularly those in the Middle East and Africa, a P.O.Box is a must as there is no home delivery there. That's what uncle Wiki says. I don't know if it's still the case. Can anyone tell me?

Eki, that's funny. Just yesterday I went to open the P.O. box and thought that I should take a picture of the long rows of them.
Your shot is so artistic.
My village and many other towns in Israel have the system of no home delivery of mail, just a centralized block of post office boxes, usually at the post office but not always.
Glad you liked my vowels post. I'll try to find you a link with audio.

I know that is true in Ethiopia. Usually one person in a neighborhood has a PO Box, and all the neighbors get their mail from them.
