Why la and not ici

We were asked to translate from English "nights when you are not here."  The answer is "les soirs ou tu n'est pas la."  I don't have accents on my keyboard."  Why "la" and not "ici"?  Is "ici" a correct alternative?

Hi Carl, 

The word 'ici' is given as an alternative for 'là' in the exercise. I am afraid they are used very loosely in French. 

As for accents take a look at the Kwiziq page which should help you out.

In the meantime,

Bonne Continuation!
