Election Day coverage unlike anyone else
Last week, we launched our first piece from the magazine, a beautiful essay by Daniel Hernandez on the pre-Hispanic drink, pulque, that's getting a new life in Mexico City's bar scene. The piece is a great example of the unique perspectives we seek to highlight—a story that you're not likely to find in any other travel mag.
Today, our Field Guide was, appropriately, focused on voting. But instead of yet another bit of prognosticating, our lead essay featured the personal reflections of Jacquelin Kataneksza, a Zimbabwean writer based in New York. Her piece is by turns sobering and hopeful—and the kind of work we hope offers readers context and gives some additional meaning to their own Election Day actions.
Thanks to YOU, we are building a unique publication—a place that creates space for a lot of different vantage points and a whole lot of new stories. It's never been more critical to expose ourselves to different stories and experiences around the world.
Over the next few weeks, we'll be rolling out more of our Mexico City pieces, along side essays and reporting from all over the world. Please help us spread the word—and thank you again for getting us to this point.
