comment “This summer” versus “last summer”
It means that, were you inclined to refer to the hill station event in the year 2013, you would have to say "last summer", as it happened in 2012. Therefore "last summer" is appropriate, as it refers to an event that happened in the previous year.

comment Is “Far East” politically incorrect?
@StoneyB this seems like a constructive question to me. I've seen plenty of "is this offensive" or "is this derogatory" questions on the site, and it's good to know what kind of language to use or not to use. This question is a good example.

comment sentence pattern clarification
Yes, but the pattern is still such even with re-wording. In both cases though, the "parents" is the indirect object.
