Hi Federico Isabello

Overall, the code is correct, except in the copy above, there is a spacing issue for the second line indented. When I copy/paste the code above, the spacing is 3, but needs to be 4.
As for the challenge, it's just not quite what the task instructions ask for. The task wants only ONE space after the asterisk for the list, but you have two.
Just fix those up and the rest is good to go.

Nice work! :) :dizzy:

Thanks Jason!
