Hi Ruben,

You are on the right track :thumbsup: but have a look at the instructions again. Instructions are very specific in what they ask and must be followed exactly.

Your syntax is all correct, but not what the challenge instructions ask for.
First, the final return you have (return location) is not need, nor is it asked for. The instructions do explicitly say that each case (including the default) should return "a tuple containing two Double values", but you are attempting to print them instead.

If you delete that final return statement and fix up the code to match the instructions (return instead of print) the challenge will pass.

Other than that... Great job!! :)

Keep Coding! :dizzy:

Hi Ruben, From what I know, you could create 2 variables named lat and lon in the function. Then in each case, you assign the values for lat and lon. Ex: case "Eiffel Tower": lat = 48.8582; lon = 2.2945. For default case just assign 0. The return syntax should be outside of the curly braces of switch command. Then you should return both lat and lon in the end. Hope it helps!
