1. Visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riñihue_Lake
2. Click Edit under the first paragraph which starts with : The Riñihue Lake (Spanish: Lago Riñihue)
3. Observe the text that is displayed to be edited in the resulting screen.

Results:
It is not the text that you wanted to edit.  Instead, it is the text from the next section.  Therefore, you can not fix typos in the desired section.

That is the way it is! The "edit" link is for that section. The 0'th section of a page doesn't have an "edit" link by default.

That does not resolve the issue.  There are grammar errors in the first section that I want to fix, like:
"It west is it cuted into two arm"

So how am I to try and fix those errors in that section if there is no way to edit it?

click the "edit the page" tab at the top of the page

You may also use this link:

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Ri%C3%B1ihue_Lake&action=edit&section=1

I'm changing this from FIXED to WORKSFORME as it was not really a bug in the software which was fixed, but a thing the user didn't know and had to learn about.

Yeah my bad. And I got an edit conflict when trying to send the correct link :)
