When Catie Keogh, Executive Producer, invited me to be part of 24/7 Chicago on NBC, I was elated! It felt like one of those big steps on the stairwell to Travel Show Paradise… and it was! There’s just something pretty fly to seeing your face on television. Not to mention that I was able to structure this segment as if it were a travel show, since, in a way, it is. I have been fascinated by the variety of cultures there are in the city of Chicago, and one that has become extremely near and dear (especially) to my taste buds has been India.
In the following segment, I am joined by Smita Shah, who is, among other incredible responsibilities, the Committee Chair for Delhi, India in Chicago’s Sister City Program. We take you on a journey through the Indian culture on Devon Avenue- learning hasn’t been this much fun in a long time. I hope you are encouraged to visit Devon Avenue for yourself- that was the goal. If you have any ideas or suggestions for future segments, I’d love to hear ‘em!
