Yes, the Milanese rae certainly very industrious. In fact, they are the European version of the Japanese i.e. they are so hardworking! Most of them tend to work continous hours from 9.00 a.m. to as late as 7PM-8PM. I should know because I still see my fellow Italian colleagues at the office even at this hour!
I thought only the Singaporeans and Japanese are workaholics. :-) Kudos to them. It is these people that make Milan the richest city in Italy.
Suffering from withdrawal symptoms because you can't log in to VT?
Fear not! Here's a list of cybercafes that I obtained from the tourist promotion office. I hope this list is not outdated. Blame it on the Milano Tourist Office if it's outdated. ;-)

'It's incredibly easy to get caught up in an activity trap, in the business
of life, to work harder and harder at climbing the ladder of success only
to discover it's leaning against the wrong wall.' - Steven R. Covey
When you walk around town around noon in summer - and you think the shops will open again after a short lunchbreak... you are wrong! They are closed all summer!!!!
