Getting away from it all...

This picture is Salim Hossen Gaus, a carpenter from Bangladesh, who winches himself every day 100ft up to a platform he's built in a tree, just so he has space to read. Apparently everyone thought he was mad, but are now asking him to build platforms for them too.
"I feel a deep affinity with nature when I am in the tree writing poetry in the moonlight or looking at the sun rising or setting," he said.
No, not mad at all.
