I find it almost impossible to believe that D did not witness the 
processions in Corfu Town - after all, it seems pretty conclusive that he 
attended the Spatharis Karaghiozi performance(s) along with Stephanides. And 
if he didnt do festivals, what was/were his source(s) for Ste 
Marie-de-la-Mer?
