As Huyen and I walked through Bangkok she would often get really excited to see some sites. However, she wouldn't really get excited at the sites the average tourist would get excited for like The Grand Palace or Wat Phra Keao. Huyen would get excited for the little BIRDS.

On the second day she literally yelped, "Look at the birds!" and ran over to a group feeding on the ground. I asked her, "Are you seriously this excited about birds?" and she said, "There's no birds in Hanoi." In defense of Hanoi, there are some birds here but they are few and far between. Huyen said that the birds in Hanoi get eaten so there aren't that many. In Bangkok (and in Myanmar) there were birds everywhere in the cities.

Here's some pictures of Huyen with her favorite tourist attractions:
