Challange not loading... did I do it right?

Hey there, This challenge is encountering an error when testing my code. I'm assuming my code is wrong lol otherwise it would work... What did I do wrong here?

far_away.py
def far_away(timedelta):
    return timedelta + datetime.datetime.now()

Hi Matthew!

The challenge hung for me, too, so I had to reload it.

Then I got: Bummer: name 'datetime' is not defined.

So I added:

import datetime

above the function and it passed.

This passes:

import datetime

# Your code
def far_away(timedelta):
    return timedelta + datetime.datetime.now()

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!
