did we say goodbye too soon?

to Monsieur de Lesseps, that is. 
As we sail 'down' the Canal to Ismailia (where we disembark and take a stroll), then we see the house which he had built.

"This is the home that Ferdinand de Lesseps the man who built the Canal used to live in.  I often go for walks down ___.  It's only about a hundred yards from our office.  I found these postcards at the office & send them for what they are worth, which is not much  __________"

  1. Ferdinand de Lesseps must have been very tired after building the Suez canal. You would think somebody would have helped him!

    I noticed the writer used the term yards instead of meters. I get confused as to who is on the metric system and who is not!
