(Personalized information is indicated by parentheses.)
- (Child) had waited such a long time for the circus to come to town. (He) had always dreamed of seeing the lions, elephants and clowns. Now the time had finally come, and (Child) was going to see that in the town of (Hometown), (his) dreams can become a reality.
