I need your help for 2 questions that I'm struggling with.
How does the path of nodes matters to the connections speed? E.g will my connections speed be faster if the tor connection goes: Germany->China->Argentina->France instead of Germany->Denmark->Italy->France. I suppose the answer to this is yes but please elaborate if there are any specific details that a newcomer might miss.
If the answer to the first question is yes, is there a way to tweak the path that my connection will take. E.g If I'm in Germany and want to access a French website, can I somehow tell tor to use only European nodes?
Thanks in advance
