GIRLS WHO SELL MUSHROOMS--Hookers.  They're alongside the road at major
highways (Poland and other countries), wearing short pants.  My guide said
they stand close to some places that sell mushrooms, so they've been given
this name.  It looks like "I've gone out to check the price of mushrooms" is
going to be a standard joke for a few days here.  But beware--they probably
carry a fungus.

HUNGARIAN DOGS--salt carts (used in the  closed salt mine I visited today, a
UNESCO World Heritage site).
SNOWMAN--salt blocks.
SHORT CUT TO CHINA--the salt mine (used by a salt mine tour guide).

NIGHT BAR--another "bar."  Does it sell nights?
24/24--used in a store that also has "nonstop."  Not 0/24?

ZARKOJE--a meal at a Ukrainian restaurant here.  OED?

I HAD TO TALK TO THE BIG EAR--Another "gone to the toilet" one, according to
my guide.
BE CAREFUL.  HE HAS A RUBBER EAR--he spreads what you say all around town.
