One good way to do this is to split the string on the '/' character,
which creates a list of strings
>>> string1 = "aaa/bbb/ccc/dd"
>>> parts = string1.split('/')
['aaa', 'bbb', 'ccc', 'dd']
Now you just want to get the last element of this list; python allows
you to index with -1 to get the last element, -2 to get the second to
