*args is an array of arguments ignore this for right now
**kwargs is dictionary "key-value" mapping of keywords and their arguments
in this case, you can pass any arbitrary amount of named arguments to your parameters
and iterate through them. I'll explain this a little more when I start writing code

if you called, create_url(near="im", dates="jim")

Look at what my code says and see if you can figure out what the commented out
function calls will print
Then uncomment and see if you were right

see what you can do now is

a little more advanced would be to make it so you can call this from the command line
