Saina means phoenix (Simorgh or 30 birds), the same legendary bird whose house is on top of a high mountain and all the birds wish to go to the top of that mountain and join her. I also like constantly to move and travel. For this reason, my mom always tells me to blow like a wind.

Mr. Partou, Saina’s teacher, asks the children in the class to write a mysterious travelogue.
