I’m here to echo what everyone else said, especially Maggie!
I confess I spent far too long glued to my screen...just made my day. We will return. ‘Once the dust of Mexico has settled on your shoulders, you will alway return’ Carl Franz, if I’m not mistaken.

I kind of doubt it was Carl Franz.

I have:
"He upon whose heart the dust of Mexico has lain, will find no peace in any other land."
- Malcom Lowry, Under the Volcano

But today I found this, from "Your Mexican Holiday", by Anita Brenner:
"Once the dust of Mexico has settled on your heart, you have no rest in any other land. So goes the proverb."

So, whether you get the dust on your shoulders or on your heart, the saying probably comes from an old proverb. Either way, I think I understand the sentiment, or more accurately, have felt it.
