I don't understand this challenge
import datetime import pytz starter = pytz.utc.localize(datetime.datetime(2015, 10, 21, 23, 29)) to_timezone = datetime.timezone(2015, 10, 21, 23, 29, tzinfo=None) starter.astimezone(to_timezone)

First, the challenge asks you to create a function, so
to_timezone should be a function, not a variable. Next, it says the function will receive a timezone as a string as an argument, so the function should have one argument. Then it says to use the given timezone that is being passed in to convert
starter to this timezone using
def to_timezone(tz_string): tz = pytz.timezone(tz_string) return starter.astimezone(tz)
