Embracing Home in a New Country (Even On Crappy Days)

If you've felt anything along these lines (or anticipate them), fear not -- you're not alone. In fact, "expat burnout" and "expat depression" are well-documented phenomena that make total and complete sense. In our quest to launch ourselves into unknown places, some cultural quirks begin to lose their flare. Here at Arcido,...

The Notre Dame Fire: A Lesson in Impermanence

On the evening of April 15th, 2019 the world looked on helplessly as one of the planet’s most historically significant buildings went up in flames.

Fortunately, no one was killed or seriously injured. Much of the building survived, as did many of the relics and treasures kept inside. However,...
