Contact Me


If you are a potential or future volunteer with BaseCamp or Volunteer Abroad, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at: peru(at)  It is a normal email address, I am just writing it like that to prevent bots from spamming me.  If you are a friend or relative, you already know my personal email address, so mail me there.


My mailing address will be:

Ali Ryder
Base Camp Lima, Peru
Domingo Elias No 222

Mail me stuff!


The most cost-effective way to actually talk to me is using Skype.  My username on Skype is: iamarogue


My phone number at the house is +511 255 7476, although I may not be the one to answer the phone, or indeed the phone might get ignored if you try to call.  My cell phone is +511 9939 56 222, and yes I know there’s a lot more digits but it works.  Remember to dial 011 before making the call, that’s how you dial out from Canada!

    Do you remember when my wife Heather and I visited Toronto and then again Windsor in 1997-98 ? Betty is my second cousin.
