    if continent[0] == 'A':


#Bummer: AssertionError: '* Asia' not found in 'Asia\nAfrica\nAntarctica\nAustralia' : Hmm...not finding the correct items in your output

At the bottom of your code is the information you need to fix this: #Bummer: AssertionError: '* Asia' not found in 'Asia' Notice the message is telling you there is an asterisk and space missing before the continent name.
