Hi Mateo,

If you are running python on your local machine, then in your command prompt you would type:

>>> pip install pytz 

I'm not sure if you are familiar with virtual environments or not, but Treehouse has a helpful video on setting one up for Python: Setting up a local Python Environment

These are helpful for keeping all of these package installations contained within a specific project, rather than installing everything globally. It's not absolutely necessary, but it can be very useful for making sure each project you are working on uses only what it needs.

Hope this helps.
