TOGO ( République Togolaise )

Officially the Togolese Republic (French: République Togolaise), is a country in West Africa bordered by Ghana to the west, Benin to the east and Burkina Faso to the north. It extends south to the Gulf of Guinea, where its capital Lomé is located. Togo covers an area of approximately 57,000 square kilometres  with a population of approximately 6.7 million.
Togo is a tropical, sub-Saharan nation, highly dependent on agriculture, with a climate that provides good growing seasons. Togo is one of the smallest countries in all of Africa. The official language is French, with many other languages spoken in Togo, particularly those of the Gbe family. 

This is my first Registered Airmail cover from Togo, came with beautiful yummy fruits and blue UPU barcode label. From Togo, registered mail with blue barcode label is not easy to get and expensive too. The cover posted on May 26, 2016 and I received in my hands on June 20, 2016. Thank You Manzi for the perfect cover.

After a long waiting got two covers from Togo from Muhammed. He said they won't accept Philatelic stamps for sending registered mails and we need to pay 3000F extra for getting blue UPU label for sending letters as registered. But I have seen a number of covers with Philatelic stamps from Togo, so I can guess why he said so. Anyway now i am happy with what i got back, will try again with other friends who are more trustful and has clear knowledge about Togo Postal service.
