Also, in detention, I ran into the award-winning French photo and video journalist Mani.
Mani had been on the Rabaa side of the demonstration, trying to film.
Mani, 40, hails from France but once studied in Damascus and is fluent in Arabic.
After Tellawi finished his report, with the tire smoke still billowing, Mani kept filming.
Mani pans past Tellawi and traces the smoke to an alley below, where a tire is engulfed in flames.
The northern island was called by the natives Ikana-Mani, a word which signifies the fish of Mani.
Mightily grew and flourished the Wolf that was to be the devourer of Mani, the Moon.
Jotin's mind began to picture Mani at her task, blundering and struggling, and yet patiently going on night after night.
But try as hard as they can, Mani keeps them from finding the way back to earth.
Hearing that Mani had wept at the mere thought of going to her father's house, Jotin was so excited that he sat up in bed.
