Not so windy in Wellington

Inside a blue whale heart

Today we cross Cook Strait from Wellington and begin our journey on the South Island. Fortunately, Wellington hasn’t lived up to its reputation as ‘Windy Welly’. It’s been nothing but clear blue skies and bright blue sea.  As the crossing point between the North and South, most travellers move quickly through the city but it’s worth lingering. We spent a day at the amazing Te Papa museum, crawling inside a blue whales heart and seeing the only Giant Collosal squid in the world – you see the fun we have!!

We're not far from Antartica now!!

    Hello

    At first, let me introduce myself. I am an editor at Chunjae Education, which is a Korean publishing company. I currently am making a book set, Way to Go.
    I found your web site (https://onebigfieldtrip.wordpress.com/2011/03/09/not-so-windy-in-wellington/#respond) while doing research for the blue whale, and thought your image(“Inside a blue whale heart”) might be appropriate for inclusion in our book concerning the blue whale.
    I am specifically seeking your permission to use this image:

    I really hope to include your image in our book.
    With your permission, we will notice that it is yours and is used under your permission, and we will send you the book soon after published as well.

    Thank you for your time.

    Kindly,
    Kyounga Park

    • Hello, thank you for your email. You need to contact Te Papa museum in Wellington to ask their permission as the whale heart is their exhibit. Good luck with your book.

    Hello

    Thank you for your kind reply.
    I’m sorry this reply is too late.
    It took a few weeks for me to ask Te Papa museum permisson to use your image in our book and get their official permission to do it.
    They does not have a similar image to your image that we would like to use, so I asked them to use your image instead of theirs with their permission.
    Finally, they said they would be able to provide permission to include an image of their blue whale heart in our book if you are able to supply us with file suitable for publication.
    To our great delight, your image (https://onebigfieldtrip.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/s8301736.jpg
    ) is suitable for publication.
    So, as mentioned previously, we really hope to include your image in our book.
    We will notice that it is yours and is used under your permission, and we will send you the book soon after published as well.
    Please let me know your home address.
    Thank you again for your great kindness and thank you in advance for your help.

    Sincerely
    Kyounga Park
