Jacob’s Sister

Jake worked next door at Bikes on Wheels.

Victoria and Jacob

He was always very comfortable in Toronto. Before I moved here.

But then when I moved here I was very anxious. Overwhelmed by the city. Not so happy.

Always having my brother around, I had that family in the city. He was that familiar face.

Cafe Pamenar

We would hang around Kensington.

The first time I walked into Cafe Pamenar, someone recognized me. I remember him saying “oh you’re Jacob’s sister!”.


It was so welcoming.

I realized you can have a small community of friends and family in the big city.
