(In this column, globetrotters Divine Lee and Victor Basa look back on their travels and regale us with their fun, intriguing, exciting, and often wacky stories.)

D: I have always been a fan of dynasties and family sagas. So it’s no wonder that when I was younger, I would gladly skip watching Disney movies for Spanish teleseryes. I think I got my overdramatic streak from it (yes, I’m the type who would run to the E.R. screaming and shouting, as if my life depended on it…and this was for only a bad case of eye stye). During our last trip to Russia, it was pretty obvious that I’d be learning more about the Romanovs (Who knows, maybe I am related to the “lost” Anastasia?), but one thing that caught my attention during our tour was another clan: The Yusopovs. The Yusopovs were not royalties like the Romanovs, but with their lifestyle, heritage, and fortune, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have got nothing on them! Let’s start our story by touring their palace!

V: I first heard about the name Yusopov when I was searching for places to visit in Russia. Upon further research, I learned that the family was involved in the brutal murder of the Russian mystic and claimant of prophethood, Rasputin. The Yusopovs were a Russian noble family that descended from the Khans of the 10th century, but they were more known for their incredible wealth and philanthropy. Although they weren’t royalty, they had immense influence and power. Browse the gallery for my travel notes!

Divine is one of those people that no matter how under the weather they feel, they’ll still go to work and be more bubbly and hyper than you could be after downing a few glasses of diet mtn dew.  Here is a little collage/postcard I put together on a rainy, under the weather kind of day when she proposed we take a few photos to test out a new flash I got.

I positioned the flash a few feet away from Divine, lower than eye level to remove any shadows that cause eyebags in the picture.  At first I was just supposed to take a few straight up photos and post them, but I opted to go the more personal route of making a collage since I believe they take a little more time to make and oftentimes have a scrapbook feel that makes one feel all warm inside.  Hope you like it!

D: V loves taking photos of people. And nagrereview kami paguwi. haha! So i told him, why don’t you blog the people na bet bonggels ang look?

So finally! Sa wakas sumunod nadin! Para naman masight ng tao ang mga photos nila! Kung may fierce followers ako (yes, tuloy pa yun, upgrading lang kaya delayed) eto naman sya. V SPOTTED. So mag bihis na lagi… V is watching!

Much love,

D + V
