In this Bite you will use the requests library to make a GET request to the ipinfo service.

Use IPINFO_URL and parse the (2 char) country code from the obtained json response.

Note how we mocked out the requests.get call in the tests, you can see another example of this in our Parsing Twitter Geo Data and Mocking API Calls by Example article.

Querying APIs is a common need so this should become second nature :) - enjoy!
