Thomas Friedman in Beirut

He said to NowHariri: "Friedman: Unfortunately, I was only in Beirut in this trip so I can’t say. I’ve been around, and certainly it feels like it’s on an upslope. I hope it is." He then said in the same interview: "Friedman: I was [in Lebanon] for three days, and I basically went out and travelled around and went to voting [stations] in Broummana and some other places, and just soaked it up with friends and contacts." Can somebody tell Friedman that Broummana is NOT in Beirut? Did you or did you not leave Beirut, or three-days-in-a-country expert. (thanks James)
