Expert Answer:

Helen felt her childhood fantasies fulfilled when she went to visit the World Fair in the year 1883.  She visited the Midway Plaisance which seemed like the stories of Arabian Nights to her. It was full of novelties and interest. She visited the India she had read about represented by bazaar, idols of Shiva and the elephant gods. The pyramids mosques and processions of camels represented Cairo. The lagoons of Venice, Viking ships, The Cape of Good hope with its diamond mines were some of the other things that caught Helen’s fancy. Electrical buildings, the anthropological departments, ancient Mexico and the Mummies of Egypt were encountered by Helen at the fair. She had the permission to feel the exhibits at the fair. This made her experience even better. This is how Helen enjoyed her time at the World Fair.
