iOS Build a Weather App with Swift Simple Data Structures Loading Files From A Directory

I keep getting the error, Don't forget to instantiate the dictionary with the contents of the plist

Loading files from a dictionary

plist.swift
import Foundation
if let plistPath = NSBundle.mainBundle().pathForResource("CrazyInformation", ofType: "plist")
let dictionary = NSDictionary(contentsOfFile: plistPath) as? [String: AnyObject]

// Add your code below

I had this same issue. This worked for me:

import Foundation
if let plistPath = NSBundle.mainBundle().pathForResource("CrazyInformation", ofType: "plist") {   
    let dictionary = NSDictionary(contentsOfFile: plistPath)
}

(there's an opening curly brace at the end of that first "if let" line that is hard to see)
