At one time he owned seven pubs in the city, but now in his 60s he has scaled down to two, of which The Joyce is his personal favourite.The pub is very much a focal point for the expat community in Prague.And when a British friend came to visit us five weeks later and asked before she travelled, if she could bring something with her that we needed, we immediately asked her to bring more adaptors!For nearly a year after our move to Prague, every one of our electrical appliances that we had brought with us from the UK, worked perfectly well with a UK plug inserted into an adaptor and then into the appropriate continental wall socket.The eventual resolution of these problems does illustrate a marked contrast, both in work practices and costs, between the UK and the Czech Republic.
