Python Introducing Lists Using Lists Continental

iterating continents

How do I extract the first two items from this list to print them alone? I thought it would use a pop method, but that doesn't work.

I attempted this code

for continent in continents: print("" + continents.pop(6), ("" + continents.pop(5))

The instructions say "Print a bulleted list of each continent from the continents list." There is no mention of "first two items". Just print them all, one each time through the loop.

And don't forget to include the asterisk ("bullet") at the front.
