Here are some pictures from when my parents visited. Having spent quite a bit of time in Chicago this summer, they knew exactly where they wanted to go: Devon and Little Village (Villaita). Devon is the Indian/Pakistani/Bangledeshi strip north of the city and Little Village is a long Mexican stretch just east of Cicero. Seemingly gritty, they seemed to be bustling with families, even late at night on this unseasonable warm weekend. (80F late in the fall in Chicago–wtf?) Anyways, enough yammering, here’s the pictures.
