Provide the address via csv or paste it here

Copy link

Missing this between 32 and 33
url = url + API_KEY

Copy link

I am a newbie to Python, I copied the above code, and replaced with my own google Map API on it and also the file path, it seems still not work, could you please provide a sample csv file to have a try?
