Towards 1987 Svetlana speaks more and more about her financial struggles, being sixty-one and unemployed is difficult and her 18-month trip to USSR has alienated her completely from the small circle of friends that she knew. Though, implying her life in the US is far from easy, she concludes, "Please don’t think that I want to return again. The road there is closed for me forever…". As her correspondence between Yura's daughter Katya continues, she asks her to reach out to her relatives and her daughter. In her letters to Yura she talks about nature in Michigan and her daughter Olga, whom she sent to study in an English boarding school. She further discusses that she herself would like to move there, prevented by her finances.
