In October, I spent 20 days in the western Mexican city of Guadalajara, working on The A.P.’s coverage of the PanAmerican Games.

In addition to editing hundreds and hundreds of news stories and results tables every day for about 10 to 12 hours –and then writing some–, I also worked on a series of audio slideshows with the goal of enhancing our PanAm package with multimedia content.

It was offered to A.P. clients as part of the coverage, and many ran it on their websites.

Here are the three slideshows produced in this occasion:
