By the Numbers
One of our longest-running and favorite series on Matador, By the Numbers pieces take a quantitative snapshot of place or experience that leaves room for the reader to use his or her imagination to fill in the backstory.
Take this example from Ecuador by the Number: “”Hours spent traveling on buses: 168.
Nighttime bus hijackings: 1.”
