Attribute Error with PYTZ

I have installed PYTZ successfully and have duplicated Kenneth's code (below) and I get the following error:

AttributeError: module 'pytz' has no attribute 'timezone'

import datetime import pytz

pacific = pytz.timezone('US/Pacific') eastern = pytz.timezone('US/Eastern') fmt = '%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S %Z%z' utc = pytz.utc start = pacific.localize(datetime.datetime(2014, 4, 21, 9)) print(start.strftime(fmt))

Do you have a file named pytz.py in your working directory? If so rename it.
